May Norma McCorvey rest in peace

We are saddened to hear of the death of Norma McCorvey

The ProLife Alliance joins with other pro-life groups across the world in expressing heartfelt sympathy to the McCorvey family, on the death of their beloved Norma. 

 In US legal history she was of course the Jane Roe of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade pro-abortion decision, but it has to be underlined that despite that very sad ruling Norma did not abort the child she was carrying and she went on to be a devout campaigner for the pro-life movement. 

 Some of us had the privilege of meeting her when she was in London some years ago, but for a more personal reflection on her life we suggest you go to the Priests for Life website (

Fr Frank Pavone knew Norma very well, and she became a Catholic later in her life.

May she rest in peace.
