Won by Love

Norma McCorvey is the Jane Roe of the infamous Roe v Wade case which, in 1973 legalised abortion in America. Poor, pregnant, uneducated, unskilled, a drug user and an alcoholic, Norma fell into the hands of two young and ambitious lawyers. They were looking for a plaintiff with whom they could challenge the Texas state law prohibiting abortion, and Norma signed on. 
Roe v Wade struck down the abortion laws of every state, and "legalised" the killing of millions of innocent children. Doe v Bolton was the companion case, signed the same day, and brought virtually unregulated abortion to all fifty states, making it legal for women to abort for any reason through all  nine months of pregnancy. Both cases were based on lies, and ironically, Norma never had an abortion. 
A mother of three, she entered a lesbian relationship,and for over two decades she worked in abortion clinics, seeing first-hand how abortion degrades women, while making abortionists "filthy" rich. But through the genuine friendship and unconditional love of Christians, and the unique influence of the Spirit of God, Norma began to change. 
At the time of her conversion she  repented deeply, and said, "I just want to undo all the evil I've done in this world."  Norma was baptised into the Christian faith a short time later. She  said, "The love I have found in God is a love that means more than the world means to me. It's a love I had to follow." In her book, Won by Love Norma writes, "It was so hard for me to believe that the Lord had forgiven me ... but gradually I have learned to trust His Word more than my own feelings." She continues, "If God can forgive Norma McCorvey ... He can forgive You." 
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all  wickedness." 1 John 1:9.
