Expanding the Love of Christ 40 Years Later.
On the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, I’m wondering where Norma McCorvey is today. Who is Norma McCorvey? Well I’m glad you asked. Norma is the woman who took the legal pseudonym of Jane Roe in the landmark case which made abortion legal for any reason in the United States back in 1973. I wonder where Norma is and what she is doing today because she is not the same woman that she was then. In fact, Norma holds a very different position today. In 1995 the world changed for Norma when some simple Christ followers and a leader from Operation Rescue did something radical; they loved her. It took some time, but eventually Norma fell under the weight of God’s love and surrendered her life to Christ and now experiences freedom and purpose. While I don’t know exactly where Norma is today, I know what her agenda is. Norma is given to spreading the truth about what a choice for abortion really means and the healing that can be found in Christ.
