In a 1987 interview with WUSA-TV, McCorvey said her lawyer had concocted the rape claim introduced in Roe v. Wade in order to make her story stronger, and that she went along with it believing that it be in her benefit. The case made it to the Supreme Court on appeal later that year, and was decided in a historic 7-2 ruling handed down in 1973. According to a journalist who had been working closely with McCorvey, she died of heart failure after a long illness, surrounded by her family. Coming out of anonymity, she first shed her eponymous courtroom pseudonym in the 1980s to take a public stance in support of abortion rights. Blackmun also established the trimester framework as a system to determine the state's ability to regulate abortion at each phase of pregnancy.
McCorvey gave birth before a three-judge panel on June 17 struck down the the Texas abortion statutes.
She gave a second child up for adoption, but when she got pregnant a third time she chose to have an abortion.
Interestingly, in her personal life, McCorvey actually shifted her position on abortion rights in later years and became a pro-life advocate in the years following the decision.
When asked if she would have had an abortion, McCorvey said, "I can honestly say no, I wouldn't have", because of how far along she was in her pregnancy.
