"AKA Jane Roe" Documentary to Cast Doubt on Norma McCorvey's Pro-Life Conversion

Norma McCorvey
A documentary by FX airing today is expected to portray that the "Jane Roe" of Roe v. Wade only pretended to become pro-life in exchange for financial gain, including a "deathbed confession" interview. Pro-life friends and onlookers alike are devastated at the news.

National Right to Life gave the following statement:
"Norma McCorvey, a woman who survived trauma and rejection that she experienced for most of her life, was welcomed and loved by the pro-life movement from the moment she entered it. It is with a heavy heart that we hear of a documentary that casts doubt on her intentions. 
Regardless of what she may or may not have said in the documentary, it does not take away from the truth about abortion or the fact that the foundation of Roe v. Wade was a lie. Norma McCorvey never had an abortion. She was used by pro-abortion attorneys to push a narrative that did not exist solely to challenge a Texas law that prohibited abortions except to save a mother’s life. 
Norma’s legacy in the pro-life movement remains. She showed the world that the abortion industry lied in 1973 and continues to lie to young women today."
