    The justices refused to hear arguments from attorneys for Norma McCorvey aka Jane Roe and let stand the landmark abortion decision of Roe v. Wade. Normal McCorvey, who is now a born again Christian and against abortion, has campaigned for years to overturn the decision. Her appeals to various lower courts have been dismissed over the years and this represented a last attempt for McCorvey to overturn the decision.

    For those who haven't read the original Roe v. Wade decision - you can find it - here It is a very well thought out decision considering its age and an excellent read.
