The True Story Of Roe v. Wade

The landmark case of Roe v. Wade is a story of lies and the unthinkable exploitation of two victims. The real identity of Jane Doe was Norma McCorvey, a 21-year-old single woman from Texas, struggling financially and pregnant with her third child. Her predicament caught the attention of two young, activist lawyers, who wanted to change the abortion laws in America. The lawyers eventually convinced McCorvey to file suit, challenging the abortion laws in Texas, which they won. Sarah Weddington, one of McCorvey’s lawyers in the case, would later admit that she used Norma for her own ambition. Meanwhile, a similar case–Doe v. Bolton–was brewing in Georgia, where the victim, Sandra Cano, too, was confronted by ambitious lawyers. The two cases were paired in an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 that resulted in the legalization of abortion. Suprisingly, McCorvey and Cano never had an abortion, and became pro-life activists on their own account, vowing to overturn the decision that carried their names. Tune in to this captivating video from Live Action for the rest of the story.
