AKA JANE ROE
May 22, 2020  | By David Bianculli

FX, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: Nick Sweeney produced and directed this new FX documentary, which was in the works the year before the 2017 death of Norma McCorvey, the woman referred to as “Jane Roe” in the landmark Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court case legalizing abortion. Sweeney interviewed McCorvey in depth, and even got what McCorvey called her “deathbed confession” about why she eventually switched sides on the issue of abortion. All the stories are complicated here, including whether the pregnancy McCorvey had sought to abort was the result of being raped, and even whether she eventually had an abortion. (Apparently, the answer to both questions is no.)
