Since Shelley presented herself to the public, she told the world her attitude towards abortion and said, “My association with Roe started and ended because I was conceived.”

She explained that during her pregnancy, her partner suggested abortion by Shelley decided to born her baby, and now she has three children and is happily married.

Fox News reported:

Shelley Lynn Thornton, the woman identified as the baby at the center of the lawsuit that led to the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision, which legalized abortion across the country, will give first television interview after her identity was revealed last month.

Thornton is the daughter of Norma McCorvey, who sued in 1970 under the name “Jane Roe” alleging that Texas’ abortion laws were unconstitutional. The case eventually was taken up by the Supreme Court — which ruled in favor of McCorvey and decided that women had a constitutional right to an abortion. It has proved to be one of the most significant and controversial rulings in Supreme Court history.

However, by the time that ruling was handed down, Thornton had been born and given up for adoption by McCorvey.

While McCorvey’s identity was revealed a few years after the court case, Thornton’s was unknown until an Atlantic article revealed her identity last month.

“My association with Roe,” she said, according to the outlet, “started and ended because I was conceived.”

Thornton will give her first television interview on ABC News on Monday night.

McCorvey would win the case at the Supreme Court on January 22, 1973.

Thornton’s story was first told in The Atlantic last month and, on Monday, she will speak for the first time on ABC News.

In a short clip of Monday’s episode, released on Friday, Thornton seemed to remain mum when asked how it feels to be the baby that paved the way for America to legalize abortion nationwide.
