The Roe V. Wade decision has resulted in over 55 million babies being murdered. “Roe” is a woman named Norma McCorvey who changed her mind and became pro-life after the blinders fell off her eyes. Here’s a short testimony about why she became “anti-choice” from her 1998 book, “Won By Love.”
“I was sitting in O.R.’s offices when I noticed a fetal development poster. The progression was so obvious, the eyes were so sweet. It hurt my heart, just looking at them. I ran outside and finally, it dawned on me. ‘Norma’, I said to myself, ‘They’re right.’
“I had worked with pregnant women for years. I had been through three pregnancies and deliveries myself. I should have known. Yet something in that poster made me lose my breath. I kept seeing the picture of that tiny, 10-week-old embryo, and I said to myself, that’s a baby! It’s as if blinders just fell off my eyes and I suddenly understood the truth — that’s a baby!
“I felt crushed under the truth of this realization. I had to face up to the awful reality. Abortion wasn’t about ‘products of conception’. It wasn’t about ‘missed periods’. It was about children being killed in their mother’s wombs.
“All those years I was wrong. Signing that affidavit, I was wrong. Working in an abortion clinic, I was wrong. No more of this first trimester, second trimester, third trimester stuff. Abortion — at any point — was wrong. It was so clear. Painfully clear.
McCorvey, in 2005, petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn the 1973 decision because of the latest evidence that abortions hurt women. Her petition was denied.
She now has a website devoted to the pro life cause called “Roe No More,” the pro-life outreach of Norma McCorvey.
