Norma McCorveyAs Jane Roe in the infamous Roe versus Wade case, Norma McCorvey lived andbreathed for the cause of abortion. But the day she met 7-year-old Emily andthe Christians from Operation Rescue, her life changed forever. Discover howGods love made her one of the most outspoken supporters of the pro-lifemovement! 256 pages, from Nelson.


In Roe v. Wade, perhaps the most controversial United States Supreme Court decision, Norma McCorvey fought for and won the right to secure an abortion. Though she never had an abortion, under the pseudonym "Jane Roe," Norma reluctantly became the poster child for the pro-choice movement. Over the next two decades, Norma experienced the grief and despair of millions of women who chose to abort their babies; she witnessed the destruction of thousands of human lives in abortion clinics where she worked; and the "champion: of the pro-choice movement was soon being crushed by the weight of so much death, and so many ill-considered "choices." Finally, she began to break. She found out that the real choice she had been burdened with was not about abortion but about eternal life. It was a choice that would shock the world and change Norma's life forever.

^Norma's story is a heartwarming tale of how Christians from Operation Rescue -- led by a seven-year-old girl named Emily -- banded together to break through even the hardest of hearts. Few expected that a woman who once told a reporter that she "lived and breathed" for abortion would one day walk next door, give her life to Jesus, and begin working for the people she once hated. Won by Love not only reveals the shocking, inside machinations of the abortion industry, but also reveals an inspiring tale of how God uses love to mold hearts to His service.

Norma McCorvey

Norma McCorvey was born Norma Leah Nelson in Simmesport, Louisiana on September 22, 1947. She stole money from a gas station at the age of 10, ran away and was sent to a reform school. She was later sent to live with a relative, who raped her for weeks. At the age of 16, she married Elwood McCorvey, who she said beat her. She returned pregnant to live with her mother, gave birth to a daughter, and divorced her husband. She had drug and alcohol problems and left her baby with her mother. When she returned, she was arrested by the police for abandoning the child. Her mother to legally adopt that child. She gave birth to another child and gave the baby up for adoption in 1967. She became pregnant a third time in 1969 and was unable to obtain an illegal abortion. This lead her to become the anonymous plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in the United States. She gave birth to her third child and gave her up for adoption. She had little contact with her lawyers Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee, never went to court or was asked to testify, and was uninvolved in proceedings that took three years to reach the Supreme Court. Later in life she switched sides, from abortion rights advocate to anti-abortion campaigner. In 1995, she was baptized as a born-again Christian. A 1998 documentary, Roe vs. Roe: Baptism by Fire, detailed her conversion. In 1998, she underwent another conversion to Roman Catholicism. In 2005, she petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, claiming abortions harmed women. The court called the issue moot and denied the petition. Her books include I Am Roe: My Life, Roe v. Wade, and Freedom of Choice written with Andy Meisler and Won by Love written with Gary Thomas. She died of heart failure on February 18, 2017 at the age of 69.
