Ditto to what everyone else said, and here's something else. Sarah Weddington also used Norma. Norma never got to have an abortion and Weddington just needed a good plaintiff. That was cold when Weddington called Norma to say "aren't you excited?" As an attorney, I might have vetted my plaintiff a little better, but they were waiting for the right moment to strike and needed to act quickly, so they took someone with a lot of problems. I was just a college freshman when this case was decided. I lived in NY, where we already had legal abortion for two years. Overall, fascinating movie.
