How did Roe v Wade get to the Supreme Court?

What happened?


Answer by  banderson7 (10)

Roe v. Wade ultimately reached the U.S. Supreme Court on appeal from the U.S. District Court in Texas on behalf of "Jane Roe" (Norma L. McCorvey), through her attorneys, Linda Coffee and Sarah Weddington. On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Ms. McCorvey with a 7-2 majority, deeming abortion a fundamental right under the Constitution

The defendant went to court because in Texas you could only have an abortion as the result of rape or incest. It went to the Supreme Court on appeal.
