How did America, a Christian nation, become a nation of baby killers?
To many voters, abortion is just another social issue. The truth is, the darkest swamp that needs to be drained is government-funded abortion by such groups as Planned Parenthood. If a politician can kill babies, there is not much he is restrained from doing, no adult he cannot encroach upon, no sacred right he cannot infringe upon, and no property he cannot confiscate by taxation or law. Abortion must be the key moral issue for Donald Trump. It ought to be the key moral issue to all Christians. Do you know enough about Roe v Wade? How many secrets lie behind this legal case?
Jane Roe is Dead
The person behind one of the most monumental legal cases in US history was known by her pseudonym “Jane Roe”. Her real name was Norma McCorvey. She passed away on 18 February 2017, aged 69.
Was Jane Roe Pro-Hillary or a Trump Supporter?
Would Norma have been pro-Hillary or pro-Trump? Roe v Wade was the legal case that Hillary Clinton staked her Presidential campaign on. She promised to “upload Roe v Wade” and “defend women’s reproductive rights”.
It’s also the case which many Christians and conservatives feel strongly unified about: we are adamantly against the Supreme Court’s ruling! We anticipate that President Trump will soon stack the US Supreme Court with justices who will overturn Roe v Wade, or remove the issue out of federal hands and put it back to the 50 states to decide individually.
The Truth About Norma McCorvey
In 1969, Norma McCorvey was 21, unmarried, unemployed and pregnant with her third daughter. She had given up her other two children for adoption.
She made one trip to an illegal abortion clinic in Dallas. Abortion was not possible because Texas allowed abortion only if the life of mother was in danger.
She asked her doctor to put her in touch with an adoption lawyer. That lawyer put her in touch with two pro-abortion lawyers Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee who were looking for a vulnerable pregnant woman who would sign their affidavit for a monumental case. She agreed to be the leading plaintiff for “free pizza & beer.”
Her case went to the Supreme Court. In a landmark decision of 7-2, the court legalized abortion up to the third trimester. Norma “won” even though she was no longer seeking abortion and had already given birth to a healthy baby daughter who was immediately adopted. “I found out about Roe v. Wade just like everyone else did,” said Norma, “I read it in the newspaper.”
12 Facts About Roe v Wade
1. Norma McCorvey never had an abortion.
2. Norma lied about her claim of being gang raped. Pregnancy from rape is far less common than Leftist activists or Cultural Marxists lead the public to believe. It is not easy to get pregnant in general, and far rarer by rape. Additionally rape victims who report themselves to the police or hospital can readily prevent pregnancy. Even though rape did not occur, the lawyers thought her claim of rape would make her case stronger and the judges more sympathetic.
3. Lawyers took advantage of Norma McCorvey. According to Norma, her lawyers thought she was the ideal case: “‘You’re white. You’re young, pregnant, and you want an abortion.’ At that time, I didn’t know their full intent. Only that they wanted to make abortion legal and they thought I’d be a good plaintiff. I came for the food, and they led me to believe that they could help me get an abortion. During our meeting, they questioned me, ‘Norma don’t you think that abortion should be legal?’”
4. Norma met the lawyers three to four times and signed the affidavit that brought Roe v. Wade into being on March 17, 1970.
5. Norma never attended any court hearing. During a 2006 interview with Dr. Brad Harrub, Ph.D., the doctor was surprised that when he asked, “‘Did you ever attend courtroom sessions?’ Her response stunned me. She quickly replied, ‘No, never.’” How could the judges make an informed ruling without hearing her testify first-hand?
6. After the case, Norma worked in several abortion clinics. She reported of her experiences on the inside, “The abortionist I worked for, he’s a very greedy man, a selfish man…I don’t think there is a good reason for an abortion, but Dr. Jasper made me really realize it was just a racket. He was just doing it for the money. He didn’t care about the women.” The Left rarely care for the people they claim to be helping. Their agenda is political power and forcing their ideology on others, not helping women nor seeking the truth.
7. In the 1980s, Norma confessed to lying about being raped. Since rape is often used to make the public sympathetic to pro-abortionists, this was a stunning invalidation of an major argument used in Roe v Wade.
8. In 1995 Norma became a born again Christian and a pro-life activist. She also ended a relationship with a lesbian partner. She committed her life to ‘serving the Lord and helping women save babies.’ Few people who know Roe v Wade know the full facts. Why has there been such a cover up about Jane Roe’s faith?
9. Norma felt judicial abuse was worse than physical abuse. She said, “Although I was an emotionally abused child, and a sexually abused teenager, I believe the worst abuse was inflicted by the judicial system.” Can you imagine a worse form abuse than sexual abuse? To her, injustice was worse than physical torment. This is why Trump has been elected to “drain the swamp”. This is why God wants to show us justice on earth and has set a Day of Judgment.
“In retrospect,” said Norma, “I was exploited by two self-interested attorneys. Worse, the courts, without looking into my true circumstances and taking the time to decide the real impact abortion would have upon women, I feel used me to justify legalization of terminating of the lives of over 35 million babies.” (Now 55 Million.)
10. Norma felt incredible guilt about Roe v Wade. She regretted her case being used to legalize abortion. In 2003 interview, she stated, “I long for the day that justice will be done and the burden from all of these deaths will be removed from my shoulders. I want to do everything in my power to help women and their children.” She put action to her words.
11. In 2004, Norma filed a federal lawsuit pleading that Roe v. Wade be overturned. Known as McCorvey v. Hill, the case was rejected by the US Appeals Fifth Circuit, calling it “moot”. The appeals court also barred McCorvey from further litigation to present her evidence.
Judge Edith Jones1 stated it was “ironic” that the “doctrine of mootness” — which confines the judicial branch to actual cases and controversies — barred further litigation. Roe v Wade was, after all, the first and foremost exception to mootness, since McCorvey’s baby was born by the time the Supreme Court sat and there was no case or controversy.
“Even more ironic,” Judge Jones wrote, was evidence McCorvey offered that “could have generated an important debate over factual premises that underlay Roe.” She referred to a thousand affidavits of women “who have had abortions and claim to have suffered long-term emotional damage and impaired relationships.” Surely the Left who liken themselves to “feminists” would care about women’s emotional damage and impaired relationships. But of course not. They live with contradictions. Their ideology trumps feminine facts.
Judge Jones said she could not “conceive of any judicial forum in which McCorvey’s evidence could be aired. Nor could the representative arms of government debate it. Our nation, Judge Jones warned, had been left in “a position of willful blindness.” This was a “perverse result.”
12. Dissenting Supreme Court Justice in the 1973 case, Byron White, rightfully called Roe v Wade an exercise in “raw judicial power.” The court had over stepped its power by playing the role of political activist and social engineer.
The evidence is clear that the Irrational Left, the Cultural Marxists, use women to advance their agenda, but silence and even demonize them when these women dare speak up against abortion.
Jane Roe became a fierce opponent of abortion and of the legal case that bears her name ‘Roe v Wade’. Why do we rarely hear this fact reported in the mainstream media?
Which President would Jane Roe have supported?
Jane Roe would have been ashamed of Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton is a political animal that’s willing to kill babies because babies cannot give her votes, but Planned Parenthood and left-wing activists can. Mrs. Clinton is no feminist in the correct sense of being pro-women, because abortion kills more baby girls than baby boys, and it is extremely damaging to the mother’s mental health.
Now that Norma is gone, we will never hear what she really thought of President Donald Trump. Yet three thing are certain from a Christian point of view:
1. Norma is in Heaven.
2. All aborted babies are in heaven. (Read my article about “Where do children go when they die?”)
3. Trump is pro-babies. Within the first week of his Presidency, he signed an executive order to stop government funding of NGOs offering abortion overseas. Trump is pro-Jane Roe, which means he is anti-Roe v Wade.
