Pro-Life Conservative Destroys Lawyer's Dream of Preserving Roe v. Wade Memorabilia


There are occurrences in life that fall into place so perfectly that they seem to be guided by the hand of God Himself.

Such is the case when the lawyer who first embarked on the Roe v. Wade case, 80-year-old Linda Coffee, put a large collection of memorabilia from the case up for auction. Her hopes were to pass on some 150 documents related to the landmark decision to the next generation of abortion activists and continue the push to keep abortion legal.

To her and every pro-abortion acolyte's dismay, these historical documents instead wound up in the hands of the pro-life conservative talk show host and co-founder of Blaze Media, Glenn Beck.

As reported by The Blaze:

"According to the Los Angeles auction house Nate D. Sanders Auctions, Coffee's collection 'documents the entire journey—from the letter Coffee wrote to Sarah Weddington proposing that the two women work together "to challenge the Texas Abortion Statute," to the receipt for $15.00 given to Coffee after filing the case in Texas, to the original affidavit signed by Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe), to the Supreme Court quill pens given to Coffee by the Court after successfully arguing the case.'

"The auction house noted further that 'the archive contains nearly 150 pages of documents and letters related to the case, plus personal effects such as Coffee's law license, bestowed upon her in 1968 only two years before she would file Roe v. Wade.'"

It is hard to measure the level of irony seen within the transaction, as Coffee and her lesbian partner Rebecca Hartt said to D Magazine in an interview:

"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," Hartt said.

It motivated people alright.

With an opening bid of $50,000, Beck ended up taking the entire collection home with him for a staggering $615,632 (including a 25% buyer's premium).

For Beck and his wife however, "the real price of these documents were the lives of at least 60 million children."

Winning the documents in fact came as a surprise to Beck, who thought he would lose "to someone like Bill or Melinda Gates who are very much interested in those things that Dickens' Scrooge would describe as policies that 'decrease the surplus population.'"

Instead of rallying future generations to the cause of slaughtering millions more children upon the altar of abortion, Beck has different plans for the documents.

"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," Beck says.

"I think this case joined with the testimony of those who have now had abortions who are forever scarred will be a powerful presentation," he added. "It is not just the life of the baby we all should be concerned about, but also that of the mother. The killing of one's unborn child can hold a mother in suffering for the rest of her life."

Beck however does not want his acquiring of these historic documents to be a point of division. Instead, he wants to use it as an educational talking point to highlight the dark history behind abortion and contemplate "the darkest and most important issues that have been asked and answered differently throughout human history."

How much of a God-thing is to take what the enemy has used for evil for decades and place it in the hands of a pro-life American who has a massive platform?

As the Word of God says in Genesis 50:20 and in Romans 8:28, God can take anything that the enemy is weaponizing for his own nefarious schemes and turn it around into something good.

Beck's acquisition and planned use of these documents that led to the murder of tens of millions of human babies is yet one more example of God's amazing and redemptive power.
