National Right to Life Mourns Death of Norma McCorvey

Published on

WASHINGTON – Today, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates, joined with right-to-life advocates nationwide in mourning the death of pro-life activist Norma McCorvey. Known as “Jane Roe” in the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, McCorvey became an outspoken advocate for the right-to-life cause. McCorvey died at her assisted-living facility in Texas. She was 69.

The following statement may be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

While pro-abortion advocates used Norma McCorvey to advance their efforts to legalize abortion in the early 1970s, she spent the last half of her life attempting to right the terrible wrong that the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions legalizing abortion visited upon the country. Norma became an outspoken advocate for protecting the lives of mothers and their unborn children, speaking at right-to-life events across the country, including the National Right to Life convention. Norma McCorvey was a friend and valued ally in the fight for life and she will be deeply missed.
