Norma McCorvey, the woman who changed abortion rights in America forever, has died. She was 69.
McCorvey died of a heart ailment at an assisted-living facility in Katy, Texas, according to the Washington Post.
McCorvey won fame as the abortion-rights icon ‘Jane Roe’ in the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade case.
The Supreme Court handed down a 7-to-2 ruling that individual state laws banning abortion are unconstitutional.
McCorvey’s views on abortion later changed and she became a born-again Christian who was active in the pro-life movement.
