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 employment at "A Choice For Women," an abortion clinic located at 9222 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 ruling.

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.
