.- In the next few days, the Supreme Court will decide whether or not to take a new case by Norma McCorvey, also known as “Jane Roe” from the infamous 1973 Roe vs. Wade case which legalized abortion in the U.S. McCorvey, who once led the charge for abortion legalization has spent years and tremendous energy trying to get the law overturned.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to decide on February 22nd, weather or not to hear McCorvey’s case to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has allowed for nearly 45 million abortions so since 1973.

An overturning of the 1973 ruling would put the decision to legalize abortion back in the hands of the individual states.

McCorvey’s petition before the Supreme Court, which was denied in 2003 and 2004 by a Dallas federal judge and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, states, “Since the original judgment of Roe v. Wade, factual conditions surrounding abortion have changed significantly demonstrating that abortion hurts women.”

The petition now before the nation’s highest court includes the testimonies of over 1000 women who have been hurt by abortion.
