FOIA The Dead

Norma McCorvey

Norma McCorvey was the plaintiff, under the pseudonym Jane Roe, of the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case ruling state anti-abortion laws unconstitutional. Her FBI file is focused on a 1989 incident, days before she was to participate in an abortion rights rally, in which unknown suspects fired a shotgun at her home and car.
