Linda Coffee, the Dallas lawyer who first launched the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v.Wade that legalized abortion nationwide, decided to sell all of the case documents, from the first papers filed at the Texas District Court to the quill pens given to her during oral arguments before the Supreme Court. She decided to auction off her archive to "inspire" the next generation of pro-choice activists in light of the Supreme Court's Dobbs ruling that overturned her landmark case. Coffee's partner Rebecca Hartt said:
We don’t know who’s going to end up acquiring it, but hopefully it will motivate some of the people to get into law or politics or whatever, because it needs to be challenged.
Coffee and Hartt couldn't have imagined who would end up buying the documents: Glenn Beck.
Glenn said the following upon acquiring the documents:
They [Coffee and Hartt] have passed [the documents] to a generation who perhaps is less focused on the so-called "human right" to kill and more on the human responsibility to care, love, and protect both the mother and child.
Glenn has long been an ardent supporters of the pro-life movement—standing up for pro-life Americans under attack from the Left, promoting organizations such as Pre-Born on his radio program, and interviewing pro-life activists to name a few examples. So why did he purchase the documents from the Supreme Court case that legalized abortion?
Glenn and his wife, Tania, said the following:
The real price of these documents were the lives of at least 60 million children [...] If we can use this to help expose this culture of death and Moloch worship, any monetary price we could personally pay would be worth it.
Instead of being purchased by a left-wing activist who would have heralded the documents as a sort of relic, Glenn wanted to make sure they were purchased by someone who would treat them as they are: the signed death sentence of 60 million children in our country from 1973 to 2022.
Now, Glenn is giving YOU access to the documents so that you can learn about the history of this case—and how to make sure that it is never repeated in the future. The slide show below contains 48 images of the 150 documents that went into Roe v. Wade.
