    A new documentary claims to unlock the story of Norma McCorvey, also known as “Jane Roe” in the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade. But pro-life leaders are warning that it doesn’t show the full picture. Released on May 22, FX documentary AKA Jane Roe centers on McCorvey, the woman whose unwanted pregnancy prompted the 1973 case that legalized abortion nationwide. McCorvey, who passed away in 2017, later turned against abortion and converted to Christianity and, then, Catholicism. But the new film shows her agreeing that her pro-life work was actually an “act.” FX advertised the documentary as a “portrait...

    This week, “AKA Jane Roe”—a documentary hyped by media as the “deathbed confession” of Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion throughout the U.S.—is being released. But filmmaker Nick Sweeney’s narrative as described by the media varies drastically from the accounts of McCorvey’s longtime pro-life friends. According to Variety, in the film, McCorvey allegedly “admits that anti-abortion groups paid her to switch over to their side in the abortion debate.” The decision to release the film about McCorvey years after her death—when she has no way of clarifying or defending her own alleged...

    Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has been outspoken in defense of the late Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe” of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case that legalized abortion in the U.S.) since media outlets began reporting this week that McCorvey allegedly lied about being pro-life over the last two decades of her life. Now he is sharing tweets McCorvey sent to him, including one sent on a day she was set to begin filming the new documentary “AKA Jane Roe,” the film that appears to show McCorvey accusing the pro-life movement of paying her to lie....

    PRESS RELEASE Wichita, Kansas – FX plans to air a so-called documentary about the life of Norma McCorvey, who was the “Jane Roe” on the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that decriminalized abortion in America. “I knew Norma well, and at one time, she lived with my family in the Wichita, Kansas, area for several months. I knew her to be a straightforward, down-to-earth woman who was witty and kind. She loved children and adored my own five children,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “There is no way her Christian faith or her pro-life beliefs were false....

    Pro-life activists, some of whom have known Norma McCorvey for many years, are rejecting a new documentary’s claim that the woman behind the landmark Supreme Court abortion case Roe v. Wade was paid later in life to promote anti-abortion views. FX on Hulu will officially release a documentary on Friday titled “AKA Jane Roe." The documentary features a 2017 interview of the famed woman behind the 1973 decision near the end of her life. A major point of controversy for the documentary is the claim that McCorvey famously went from being an advocate for abortion rights to becoming a pro-life...

    An upcoming documentary reportedly makes an earthshattering claim about Norma McCorvey, the “Roe” in Roe v. Wade (1973), who later regretted her role in making abortion legal and became a defender of the unborn. According to the new FX documentary AKA Jane Roe, McCorvey admitted she was paid off by the pro-life movement. Yet Allan Parker, founder and president of The Justice Foundation, represented McCorvey from 2000 to 2005 and maintained a friendly correspondence with her afterward. He argued against the film’s central claim, suggesting the filmmakers snookered McCorvey and deceptively edited her words. “I was in contact with Norma...

The programme was filmed in the last months of McCorvey's life before her death...

    Norma McCorvey, who passed away Saturday, didn’t go see attorney Sarah Weddington out of any desire to legalize abortion. She literally went to see her because she was hungry. They met together in a pizza parlor. Norma didn’t even know the meaning of the word “abortion.” She never got the help she was seeking for her third pregnancy, and ended up making an adoption plan for the baby girl who was born. She never appeared in court, and she found out about the outcome of Roe vs. Wade like everyone else did — in the morning paper. Having been exploited...

    This month is the forty-second anniversary of the legal decision, Roe v. Wade, in which the Supreme Court eliminated the abortion laws of all 50 states. Here are five facts about the plaintiff behind the case that transformed America: 1. “Jane Roe” was the legal pseudonym for Norma McCorvey the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade. McCorvey filed court documents against Henry WADE, the district attorney of Dallas County from 1951 to 1987, who enforced a Texas law that prohibited abortion, except to save a woman’s life. 2. In 1969, McCorvey was 22 years old, divorced, homeless, and pregnant for the...

    While most pro-lifers know that Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, is now pro-life, fewer know that she worked in two abortion clinics before her conversion. She tells her story in her book Won By Love.McCorvey had a lot to say about what working in an abortion clinic was like.  The first clinic she worked at, A-Z, was horribly run and filthy. Here, she describes what she saw in that clinic:  I started working at the A to Z clinic in January 1995, and it was a health disaster waiting to happen.

    Exclusive: Janet Porter joins pro-life leaders as they stand with Rep. Todd Akin Want to know why the Republican Party is in such trouble? I believe it comes down to one word: courage. When Democrats misspeak, we make them vice president. When Republicans misspeak, Republicans are the first in line to throw them under the bus. When Rep. Todd Akin stood for protecting all innocent human life in a recent interview, he used a word with more than one meaning. He used the word “legitimate” before the word “rape” to mean “real,” “forcible,” a tragic event that “really took place.”...

    Norma McCorvey, the woman who was the “Jane Roe” in the U.S. legal decision “Roe v.
