You know that Roe v Wade is the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that invalidated 50 state laws and made abortion legal and available on demand throughout the United States, and that the massive March for Life rallies are held on its anniversary, January 22.
Unless you’re an avid reader in the believosphere (my nickname for Christian news and views online), you may not know that the “Roe” figure in the case name died this weekend of heart failure at age 69.
Her real name was Norma Leah McCorvey (nee Nelson.)
Because Norma renounced her pro-choice past (she was brought to Christ by Rev. Flip Benham, and then to the Catholic Faith by Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life), she became a persona non grata to the lame scream media.
The New York Times threw in a mention of it inside its Saturday edition but you may have to pray to St. Anthony to find it.
Just a few examples of blatant pro-choice slant from that bastion of liberal bias.
The next generation of pro-lifers is making incredible gains in influencing public opinion about the realities of abortion (start the list with vivid 4D imaging of the unborn baby). We’re winning.
Lent is upon us. Let’s remember Norma in our prayers, and do our part to consign abortion to the scrap heap of history. (I never met this courageous soul, although a phone interview almost came together.)
Let’s keep up the momentum toward the day when that great future Eastertime arrives in which all persons are respected in law no matter how small, no matter how old.
Norma McCorvey, requiescat in pace.
