Jane Roe of "Roe vs. Wade" Declares
Her Newfound Faith In Jesus Christ
On Tuesday, August 8, at 7:00 P.M., Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe) was
baptized in Dallas. The baptism was to celebrate of her newfound
faith in Jesus Christ. August 8, 1995 was also McCorvey's last day of

Markville Drive, in Dallas. McCorvey was the marketing director for
the clinic. McCorvey was "Jane Roe," the woman whose demand for an
abortion led to the landmark 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court
At McCorvey's request, she was baptized by Rev. Flip Benham, director
of Operation Rescue National. McCorvey said, "What better person to
baptize me than Flip!" In April 1995, Benham moved his office to 9224
Markville Drive. next door to A Choice For Women. Operation Rescue
National's office manager is Ronda Mackey. Emily Mackey. the seven
year old daughter of Ronda, invited McCorvey to attend church with her
every time she saw her. These invitations were often accompanied by
hugs from Emily. In July, 1995, McCorvey, for the first time. went to
church with the Mackeys.
At age 47, McCorvey was searching for something better. She said
"'I've had too many drunken nights and too many nights of not
being able to sleep. Once you know the realities of abortion and what
goes along with it, it stays with you." She went on to say "I've
seen the clinic's freezer full of fetuses.'
McCorvey accepted Christ into her heart the first evening she attended
the Hillcrest Christian Church. McCorvey says, "I was scared to
death. I thought the ceiling was going to come down. Jane Roe in
church!? For heaven's sakes!"
Norma McCorvey, a former drug dealer and alcoholic, kept private for
16 years. In she made her first public speaking appearance. In 1994
her biography, I Am Roe, ws published McCovvey has never had an
abortion. She save baby Roe up for adoption. McCorvey said, "I
used to deal with black magic. I was self taught. I was so far away
from God It wasn't even funny.
As for her future plans, McCorvey says, "I'll serving the Lord and
be/ping women save their babies," McCorvey continues, "I will hold a
pro-life position for the rest of my 1ife."
Jeff White, Director of Oporation Rescue Califomia, is in Dallas with
Norma. He said, "We have been told that the new standing order et A
Woman's Choice abortion clinic is, 'Don't talk to Operation Rescue,
don't even even wave to them." Pro-abortion forces are powerless
against the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
