The woman behind the controversial Roe v. Wade abortion case passed away this weekend at the age of 69.

While Roe v. Wade is a well-known court case, the woman behind the case is much less well-known. Her name was Norma McCorvey, and when she was 22 years old she wasn’t able to find a doctor in her home state of Texas who would perform an abortion. Her lawyers referred to McCorvey as “Jane Doe” for purposes of the case. They sued Dallas County District Attorney Henry Wade on her behalf--and won.

This all took place years after McCorvey had given birth to her child and given it up for adoption.

The Roe v. Wade decision became one of the most notable--and controversial--cases in American history. Since it was handed down, more than 58 million abortions have been performed in the U.S., according to Relevant Magazine.

However, there is redemption in McCorvey’s story.

Years after giving birth to her child and years after the Roe v. Wade decision, McCorvey became a Christian and a pro-life advocate. The woman at the center of the most notable abortion decision went to work for a pro-life group called Operation Rescue.

In an interview with NPR, McCorvey once said, “I'll be serving the Lord and helping women save their babies. I will hold a pro-life position for the rest of my life. I think I've always been pro-life. I just didn't know it.”

First Lady Melania Trump has been harshly criticized for her recitation of the Lord’s Prayer at a rally in Melbourne, Florida last week.

Fox News talked to conservative commentator and writer Todd Starnes about the criticism the First Lady received.

"It's incredibly despicable, the hate and vitriol that's being directed at the entire Trump family, and it really says a lot about who we are as an American people," said Starnes, the author of The Deplorables' Guide to Making America Great Again.

The criticism of the First Lady ranged from attacks targeting her accent to comments about her not having the prayer memorized. reports on just a few of the harsh criticisms:

“With an hour’s practice I could probably say the Lord’s Prayer better in Slovene than Melania Trump does it in English,” @adrianshort wrote on Twitter.

@NicoleAngeleen tweeted: “I could recite the Our Father backwards, drugged with a gun to my head. If you need to read this prayer, you’re not Christian (re: Melania).”

“Melania starts the dictatorship rally with the Lord’s Prayer? NOT EVERY AMERICAN IS CHRISTIAN!!!! Country over party,” tweeted @JaimePrimak.

Starnes went on to condemn liberals who criticize traditional Judeo-Christian values held by many Americans:

"A lot of liberals in America believe that those people who hold to the traditional American values ... are beyond redemption," Starnes said. "The fake outrage is about as fake as what you're going to read in the New York Times' politics section."

A Louisiana woman who jumped into the way of danger to help a police officer said she simply “did what God needed me to do.” reports that Vickie Williams-Tillman, 56, noticed that a police officer was being overpowered by a suspect and stopped to help. Williams-Tillman was driving to a store, listening to gospel music on the radio when she took note of the altercation.

A Baton Rouge police officer had confronted a suspect who was asleep in his vehicle around 8 a.m. Drugs were present in the vehicle. When the officer confronted the suspect, the man became violent, grabbed the officer’s baton, and began hitting him with it. He also tried to grab the officer’s gun.

That’s when Williams-Tillman came to the officer's rescue. Without losing a moment, she jumped on the suspect’s back, making it possible for the officer to overpower him.

"I could see in his eyes he needed help," Williams-Tillman recalled. "You don't have time to think about it … I did what God needed me to do."

Police reinforcements arrived soon after to take control of the situation.

Williams-Tillman is now being hailed as a hero. Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston-Broome praised her act of bravery.

"Vickie Williams-Tillman epitomizes the true Good Samaritan," Weston-Broome said. "She reached out and offered a courageous and unconditional response to the officer. Ms. Williams-Tillman is a hero and demonstrates the true meaning of loving God and loving your neighbor."
