Norma McCorvey was the plaintiff in the 1973 case Roe vs. Wade, which forced legal abortion throughout the country. Few people know that she also worked in abortion clinics before becoming pro-life.
In her sworn deposition (Norma McCorvey A.k.a. Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade) of March 15, 2000 (which can be found in its entirety here) she describes some of the experiences she had while working in the abortion industry.
She explains how the doctors in her clinics were primarily concerned with the monetary rewards of performing abortions:
While all the facilities [I worked in] were much the same, the abortion doctors in the various clinics where I worked were very representative of abortionists in general. The abortionists I knew were usually of foreign descent with the perception that the lax abortion laws in the United States present a fertile money-making opportunity. One abortionist, in particular, would sometimes operate bare-chested, and sometimes shoe less with his shirt off, and earned a six-figure income. He did not have to worry about his bedside manner, learning to speak English, or building a clientele.
In these cases, the abortionists were not working at the clinics out of an altruistic desire to help women or even a commitment to the pro-choice cause. Rather, they saw an opportunity to make money and seized it.
