Roe v. Wade

« Back to Glossary Index

In 1970, Norma McCorvey, under the pseudonym “Jane Roe,” filed a law suit challenging the Texas laws that criminalized abortion. The “Roe” of that case is described as a pregnant woman who “wished to terminate her pregnancy by an abortion ‘performed by a competent, licensed physician, under safe, clinical conditions’; that she was unable to get a ‘legal’ abortion in Texas…” Her attorneys, looking to further their own agenda, claimed that the Texas statutes were unconstitutionally vague and that they abridged her right of personal privacy. Norma, who says she was misled and a dupe for her attorneys, never had an abortion and gave her baby up for adoption. She’s now a pro-life activist. On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. In Roe, the Court struck down a Texas abortion law. In Doe, the Court threw out the restrictions on abortion in a more liberal Georgia law. The combined result overturned the laws that restricted abortion in every state. Read More…
