McCorvey, who went by the pseudonym Jane Roe, challenged the constitutionality of abortion laws in Texas in 1971. At the time, it was illegal for women to have abortions unless their lives were at risk.
"Norma McCorvey, 'Roe' in Roe v. Wade, Is Dead at 69" is from the February 18, 2017 News section of USA Today. It was written by Eliza Collins and narrated by Paige McKinney.
