A Paralyzing Witness: Jane Roe’s Sworn Testimony Against Abortion

Below I’ve pasted a copy from a short post today at Between Two Worlds blog.  In it you will find a link to Norma McCorvey’s sworn testimony before the Supreme Court in March, 2000, in which she gave witness against the horrors of her experience with the abortion industry.

The “Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade was Norma McCorvey. In 1969 she was 22 years old, divorced, homeless, and pregnant for the third time (she had placed her first two children for adoption). Somehow an adoption agency connected her with two young lawyers fresh out of law school who were eager to challenge the Texas statutes on abortion. McCorvey only met with her lawyers twice–once for beer and pizza, the other time to sign an affidavit (which she didn’t read). In order to speed things up McCorvey lied and told them she had been raped. She never appeared in court, and she found out about the infamous ruling from the newspapers. The baby she was seeking to abort was born and placed for adoption.

Today Norma McCorvey is pro-life, advocating for the unborn. You can read her sworn testimony recounting her experience as the plantiff in one of the most signficant cases to appear before the Supreme Court.
