Attorney Sarah Weddington, who represented Norma McCorvey, a.k.a. “Jane Roe,” in the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade, died on Sunday at the age of 76.

Breitbart reports:

In a Twitter post on Sunday, Susan Hays, a former student of Weddington’s and current Texas agriculture commissioner candidate, said Weddington died Sunday morning in Texas due to complications from “health issues.”

“Sarah Weddington died this morning after a series of health issues. With Linda Coffee she filed the first case of her legal career, Roe v. Wade, fresh out of law school. She was my professor at UT, the best writing instructor I ever had, and a great mentor,” announced Hays.

“At 27 she argued Roe to SCOTUS. (A fact that always made me feel like a gross underachiever.). Ironically, she worked on the case because law firms would not hire women in the early 70s, leaving her with lots of time for good trouble,” added Hays.

With a 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court legalized abortion across the United States in 1973, declaring it a constitutional right. Speaking with the Guardian in 2017 during the confirmation process for Justice Neil Gorsuch, Weddington warned that Roe could be overturned if enough conservative judges were appointed to the Supreme Court.

Now that Weddington is dead, so should be her most horrid Roe v Wade “accomplishment’. What a legacy–millions of babies killed.

“Roe” was totally based on LIES. McCorvey was neither married nor pregnant. As is usual with the Left, it was a fabrication and should be reversed on THAT ALONE.
If this happened in a criminal trial, the verdict would be thrown out and the prosecutor disbarred!
Weddington joins Notorious RBG, Harry Blackmun, and many others in NOW discovering God’s view on baby killing!
