Norma McCorvey, ‘Jane Roe’ of Roe v. Wade Case That Legalized Abortion, Dies at 69

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.
