.- Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff âJane Roeâ in the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, will appear in her first-ever television commercial to lament her role in the case.
Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, documented abortions have killed more than 50 million unborn babies in the U.S.
In the new commercial McCorvey says, âback in 1973 I was a very confused twenty-one year old with one child and facing an unplanned pregnancy. At the time I fought to obtain a legal abortion, but truth be told, I have three daughters and never had an abortion."
âUpon knowing God,â she continues, âI realize that my case, which legalized abortion on demand, was the biggest mistake of my life.
âYou read about me in history books, but now I am dedicated to spreading the truth about preserving the dignity of all human life from natural conception to natural death."
McCorvey is now an active Catholic.
The commercial is produced by Virtue Media, which describes itself as an organization âdedicated to producing and airing powerful and life-saving television, radio commercials and educational films.â
Susan Gerdvil, Communications Director at Virtue Media, told CNA that the organization is working with different pro-life groups to air the commercial but a broadcast is not yet scheduled.
