Washington D.C., Feb 17, 2005 / 22:00 pm
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.
