We always note that the pro-life cause is a movement of converts -- and there are few conversions that were so surprising as that of Norma McCorvey, who died today at the age of 69.

Norma McCorvey was the woman at the center of Roe v. Wade, the case that made abortion legal in the United States. She was "Roe" -- the anonymous woman who sued the state of Texas, which would not permit her to have an abortion.

Following the infamous Supreme Court ruling in her case, she lived a troubled life and ended up in the abortion industry. But it was while she was working at an abortion center that she experienced her conversion.

Not only did she become a Christian, but she rejected abortion advocacy and became pro-life.

She even operated a small ministry called Roe No More ... and later gave a very kind endorsement of 40 Days for Life.

"I hope and I pray that you will join us in 40 days of prayer and fasting and help overturn Roe v. Wade," she said, "because we didn?t have a choice in the beginning with the Supreme Court justices ? they decided it for us."

God indeed can provide miracles -- and the conversion of Norma McCorvey certainly ranks among the most amazing. May she rest in eternal peace!
