Season 145 - Day 4 of 14
In 1969, a woman named Norma McCorvey became pregnant with her third child. McCorvey did not want to go through with the pregnancy, but abortion was illegal in the state of Texas where she lived.
Her attorneys filed a lawsuit on her behalf against her local district attorney, Henry Wade and the district court ultimately ruled in her favor.
The ruling was appealed directly to U.S. Supreme Court, but in 1973 they reached the same conclusion, thus legalizing abortion in the United States.
Under which legal pseudonym is Norma McCorvey better known?
