Deathbed Confession of 'Jane Roe': Was Norma McCorvey Paid Off?
Reportedly, a new documentary features McCorvey’s “deathbed confession”—she wasn’t really a pro-life activist. It’s claimed she was paid to play the part.
A Supreme Court decision in 1973 changed American history forever when the justices decided that abortion is a constitutional right. Over 60 million children in the USA have been murdered in their mother’s wombs as a result since then. The woman at the center of that court case was known simply as “Jane Roe.” She later became known by her real name, Norma McCorvey, and worked to get Roe v. Wade overturned as a pro-life activist. Well, Norma McCorvey is back in the news once again, three years after her death.
It’s claimed she was paid to play the part by pro-life groups.
A new documentary titled AKA Jane Roe is set to air on FX and it’s already stirring up controversy. Reportedly, the documentary features McCorvey’s “deathbed confession”—supposedly she wasn’t really a pro-life activist. It’s claimed she was paid to play the part by pro-life groups. Headlines in newspapers throughout the US and around the world are running with the story, publishing headlines such as “Anti-abortion rights movement paid 'Jane Roe' thousands to switch sides, documentary reveals” and “Jane Roe’s deathbed confession exposes the immorality of the Christian right.” Other articles are claiming the “bombshell” revelation is nothing more than a “smear campaign” and McCorvey truly was pro-life. However, I’m sure we’ve all learned not to trust the media these days! We know how they distort, lie about, and misrepresent AiG over and over again.
