The woman whose mother wanted an abortion became the landmark Rowe Wade case to give her her first television interview.

McCorvey will win the case in the Supreme Court on January 22, 1 Mc.
Thornton’s story was first told on The Atlantic last month, and on Monday he will speak for the first time on ABC News.
In a short clip from Monday’s episode, released Friday, Thornton was seen keeping quiet when asked how the baby felt that paved the way for a nationwide legalization of abortion in the United States …
… ‘I want everyone to understand that this is something I have chosen to do.’
The first picture identifying Thornton tweeted shortly after the Atlantic story was published and repeated throughout the day.
Thornton, a married mother of three, said her views on abortion are now complex, adding, “I don’t understand why it’s a government concern.”
But she revealed that when she became pregnant at the age of 20, she decided that abortion was ‘not part of who I was.’
“My relationship with Roy began and ended because I was pregnant,” she told Pragar, whose book was published Sept. 14.
