Statement of Norma McCorvey's Family

Family of Norma McCorvey

February 19, 2017
   
 

Losing a loved one is always a difficult time for a family. Losing a loved one who was also a public figure at the center of a national controversy brings additional challenges. It also brings additional consolations.

We are, therefore, grateful to so many people across America and around the world who, in these days, are expressing their condolences, their prayers, and their gratitude for the example Mom gave them in standing up for life and truth. Though she was the Jane Roe of Roe vs. Wade, she worked hard for the day when that decision would be reversed.

We are also grateful for the respect shown to our privacy at this time of grieving. Mom suffered much during her life, but we are grateful to God that she took his hand, found his peace, and now has that peace in its fullness.

As we adjust in our private lives to the loss of Mom, we know that her story will live on in the public and pray that it will bless many people.

Funeral services will be held this weekend but are closed to the media. We ask that media inquiries be directed to the Communications Office of Priests for Life, at media@priestsforlife.org.

In the coming months, memorial masses and other services in various regions of the country will be organized by Priests for Life to give more people an opportunity to remember Mom's life and work.
