The groundbreaking 1973 Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade legalized abortion and set the stage for decades of fierce debate. 50 years later, ROE explores the personal journeys of attorney Sarah Weddington and plaintiff Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe”), the women behind the case. Humorous, poignant, and sometimes shocking, ROE explores their divergent paths, reflecting our national polarization and illuminating the heart and passion each side has for its cause. Featuring Equity guests Lori Vega and Andrew Rein.
