Norma McCorvey died Saturday in Katy, Texas, at the age of 69, following a period of failing health. McCorvey (shown) was more commonly known as ‚ÄúJane Roe‚ÄĚ in the historic 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, the case that overturned all state laws banning abortion. However, she spent much of her life working to undo the damage of Roe v. Wade.
At 21 years of age and pregnant with her third child ‚ÄĒ the first two having been given up for adoption ‚ÄĒ McCorvey sought an abortion only to find it illegal in her home state of Texas. Through a series of circumstances she was introduced to attorneys Linda Coffee and Sarah Weddington who used a desperate and ill-informed young McCorvey to further an agenda to legalize abortion at the federal level. Although she agreed to be the plaintiff in the case, McCorvey, who had only a ninth grade education, admitted her lack of understanding of the situation. In an...
John Y., she embraced the Whore Church, not Christ.
People can do "good" things and still not be Christian, some of you here made the mistake.
Romans 4: 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? ‚ÄúAbraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.‚ÄĚ 4 Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. 5 And to the one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness, 6 just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:---ESV
Some of you want to say her works made her a Christian, but she denied Christ by accepting the Romish Church. A much greater personage was http://tinyurl.com/hhocuon (Albert Schweitzer), but he was still heretic. Like many Albert went looking for Jesus, and surprisingly he thought Jesus looked like him, according to John MacArthur.

Finally someone on here who thinks correctly pertaining to a Catholic who has embraced Jesus as their Savior and trusts entirely in Him alone for salvation and continues to attend the Catholic Church but remains saved regardless if they attend the Catholic Church. McCorvey had embraced Jesus as her Savior during an Altar Call at an Evangelical Protestant Church and then converted to the Catholic Church.
Matthew 7:16-21 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. ---ESV
Norma "Roe" McCorvey wrote: My Mom was a Roman Catholic, and she would often take me to Catholic Churches and leave me at Mass alone. There aren't many good memories from my childhood, but this is one of them. I liked it so much and was often moved to tears. I felt the presence of God. There was something very moving about the Catholic ritual and symbolism -- the procession with the priest and altar boys, the incense, cross, and candles, the statues and the music. I knew God was everywhere, but in Catholic Churches I always felt especially close to Him. When I asked my Mom why she would take me there, she said, "Remember, the Catholic Church was the first Church." I knew I couldn't take communion, but I was content....
So the Catholic Church, and the idea of formally joining it, was never that far from my mind. Several events and the answers to a few key questions brought me to the definite decision to do so.
Perhaps in her mind, she determined she received Christ as her savior. Even going to a Catholic Church doesn't negate ones salvation. Given her history it's possible she was used more often as a pawn, sad soul.
There are many lost and confused catholics who hold to the sanctity of life. She is in the Lord‚Äôs hands now and He can see her heart and will decide according to His perfect justice.
All this lady did was help legalize the murder of innocent lives. But, those who have had this procedure wanted to do it and our laws simply accommodated their desires. The law doesn‚Äôt make us sin, but simply allows us to do what our hearts wanted to do in the first place.
No, Dave, she wasn't. She went from atheist, to Christian, and as Carl pointed out , to Catholic.
Mark 4:5-6 Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil. And when the sun rose it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away. ---ESV
