The Village Voice investigates Norma McCovey, the original Jane Roe of the landmark abortion case, Roe v. Wade. McCovey once served as a symbol for the pro-choice movement, but now denounces abortion and works for Operation Rescue. The story paints McCovey as a troubled woman, plagued by alcohol and drug abuse, used by pro-choice activists in need of a test case for abortion rights, and later slighted by feminist activists who considered McCovey too uneducated for them to showcase at the forefront of the pro-choice movement.
