think.kera.org 1

Norma McCorvey – the Dallasite better known as Jane Roe – died in February. Though the Supreme Court ruled in her favor in the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, the case has remained a topic of public and legislative debate for more than 40 years. We’ll look back at McCorvey’s complicated life with Moira Donegan who recently wrote about McCorvey for the New Republic. We’ll talk with researcher Sarah Roberts who studies how women feel about their decision to have an abortion. We’ll also talk with Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa, the leader of a pro-life feminist organization and Kassi Underwood, author of “May Cause Love: An Unexpected Journey of Enlightenment After Abortion.”
