Jane Roe is Roe No More

Her name is Norma McCorvey. She likes to be called, "Miss Norma," and is unapologetically Roman Catholic. As the former "poster-girl" for abortion who, in the words of a friend, "jumped off the poster and into the arms of Christ," Norma truly began to live her life in 1995 when she became baptized and gave her life to God. She literally moved next door from the abortion clinic at which she was working to the national offices of the prominent pro-life organization, Operation Rescue. Shortly after her conversion in 1997, Miss Norma founded Roe No More Ministry to share with the world what she knows about "choice". She knows the truth of Roe v. Wade and the lie upon which it all started. She is now dedicated to reversing what she was a part of 35 years ago.

The Truth of Roe v. Wade

The Roe vs. Wade case took three years of trials to reach the United States Supreme Court. In the meantime, McCorvey had not aborted, but had given birth to the baby in question. In the case, she claimed that her pregnancy was the result of rape. She now claims that to have been untrue.

In the 1980s, McCorvey revealed herself to be the "Jane Roe" of the famous case, and that she had been the "pawn" of two young and ambitious lawyers (Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee) who were looking for a plaintiff with whom they could challenge the Texas state law prohibiting abortion.

About Roe No More Ministry

Although Miss Norma is Catholic, she prides herself in maintaining an unequivocally non-denominational ministry. She is a firm believer in the fact that as Christians, we need to come together and spread the Good News of life ecumenically as opposed to trying to convert each other.

Roe No More Ministry's primary service is through Miss Norma's public speaking. Since its' inception in 1997, she has traveled to three countries and over 40 states, sharing her story at rallies, with church congregations, civic organizations, politicians, university students and clergy.

Its' mission is to spread the truth that Roe v. Wade is not liberation for women, but was a case based on lies and deceit. Having worked inside abortion clinics, she knows, not only what really happens behind closed doors, but also what the women go through.

Central to Miss Norma's message is her unparalleled support of Crisis Pregnancy solutions. She recently commented that,
"instead of supporting organizations such as Planned Parenthood with taxpayer money, we should support local Crisis Pregnancy Centers who provide women with options other than killing their children...Women need to be fully informed...believe me, I've seen first-hand how inadequate the counseling by abortion providers really is."

In January, 1998, Miss Norma testified before a Senate Subcommittee stating:
"I saw procedure rooms where sanitation and hygiene were after-thoughts. I worked with a doctor that operated on women while he was barefoot...but the most terrible of all, I saw women who were emotionally and physically scarred by their visit to an abortion clinic. They often came asking us if it was a baby, and more often than not, they were lied to, and told, 'No, it was not a baby.'"

In the end, Miss Norma's message is about love and forgiveness. Ultimately, what is most unique about her and her mission is that she knows something far greater than herself. She knows God. And because of all of this, Jane Roe is, in fact, Roe No More.
