Norma McCorvey, also know as the famous Jane Roe of the 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, recently died at 69 from heart failure. As Roe, McCorvey sued the state of Texas because abortion was illegal in the Lone Star State and she found herself with an unwanted pregnancy at the time. Despite being part of one of the most highly publicized cases, McCorvey not only did not abort any children once abortion became legalized, but she became a pro-life Christian. She leaves behind three daughters. “Though she was the Jane Roe of Roe vs. Wade, she worked hard for the day when that decision would be reversed,” the family wrote in a letter.
