Norma McCorvey passed away at age 69 on Saturday.

Her journey to notoriety began in June 1969 when she attempted to get an abortion. Her lying failed to secure legal permission, and her scheme to obtain an illegal abortion also ended unsuccessfully. She then gathered a diabolical duo of fee-hungry attorneys to gear up for a protracted legal fight. Fortuitously, the baby reached full term before the menacing lawsuit did, and in 1970 the suit was filed under the alias Jane Roe. The Dallas County DA was Henry Wade, and thus the infamous case was christened Roe v. Wade.

By the time the case popped out of the Supreme Court, the law was on the side of executing unborn people, a monstrous legality that began to rapidly and incessantly devour millions of unborn babies. Legally.

The rest, as they say, is history. And a bloody one at that.

But in 1994, Norma McCorvey flipped sides. She made the acquaintance of pastor Flip Benham who ran a pro-life outfit based adjacent to the pro-choice reproductive health clinic (read: infant abattoir) where McCorvey was working.

On her outdoor smoke breaks she would engage in heated banter with the pro-lifer next door. She eventually began to see him as a caring man, and even agreed to visit his church. Within a year she publicly declared that she had converted to Christianity, and was baptized in a backyard pool on national television.

McCorvey was a changed woman. She renounced her former views on abortion and began to live out what she said.

In 1998, she testified to Congress:

The article, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, says newborn babies are not “actual persons” and do not have a “moral right to life”. The academics also argue that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it turns out to be disabled when it is born.

The journal’s editor, Prof Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, said the article's authors had received death threats since publishing the article. He said those who made abusive and threatening posts about the study were “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society”.

The article, entitled “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?”, was written by two of Prof Savulescu’s former associates, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva.

They argued: “The moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.”

Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’

In case you did not know babies can feel pain in their mothers belly.


Anyway a bill had passed the House that would have made abortion illegal after 20 weeks, but the Senate did not pass it.

well here are some pro-life and pro-choice arguments that I found after watching the movie 180 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y2KsU_dhwI

I have yet to find a pro-choice response for this pro-life argument.
No abortion is safe. There is at least one person dead at the end of every procedure. Just because you don't have to see their face as its dismembered doesn't negate that fact. Why do you claim to care about women but not the aborted baby girls? You're not giving any reasons why abortion is morally justified, you're just giving reasons why you don't think it should be stopped.
We are all equally wretched sinners who equally deserve the wrath of God, but wants to save sinners, and He provided a way for sinners to find peace with Him, despite their sins. The Bible says "God demonstrated His love in this way, that while we were still yet sinners, Christ died for us." So ponder the words of Jesus "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with them, and them with Me"
