In 1973, the historic Roe v. Wade case set the precedent that a woman’s right to have an abortion is protected by the U.S. Constitution. The plaintiff at the center of that case was Norma McCorvey, better known by the legal pseudonym “Jane Roe.” But later in her life, McCorvey would do a complete 180. She became a passionate pro-life advocate, publicly expressing her regrets and even attempting to petition the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling before her death in 2017. So what happened? That’s what the upcoming FX documentary AKA Jane Roe — the network’s first ever documentary feature — attempts to answer.
