The Benham Family, Who Led Roe to Christ, Celebrate Pro-Life Victory

By Movieguide® Contributor

The Benham brothers, former MLB players and HGTV stars, celebrated the overturn of Roe v. Wade with their father, Flip Benham, the man who led Norma McCorvey, the Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade, to Christ.

“Today, the battle has been turned loose from the federal government right back to the states. The Church of Jesus Christ has an opportunity to allow her theology to become biography in the streets, and state by state, this battle can be won. In other words, it’s a lot closer to the people. It’s a lot closer to us, that we can get this battle and win this battle, and God is calling the Church of Jesus Christ,” Flip shared in a recent Facebook video with his sons.

Movieguide® previously reported on the controversy surrounding the validity of Norma McCorvey’s conversion to Christianity in the 2020 documentary AKA JANE ROE, which Movieguide® found to be unacceptable viewing.

In the documentary, McCorvey seems to deny her pro-life stance and Christian faith. However, pro-life leaders, including Flip, say that the documentary attempted to “rewrite history,” and Norma remained pro-life until her death.

In their Facebook video, the Benham brothers discuss their family’s history working in the pro-life movement. When they were teenagers, their father would bring women who chose life to their house.

“We would need to help them because it’s one thing to be against abortion, but it’s another thing to be pro-life,” they explain.

McCorvey, whom the Benhams call “Ms. Norma,” was one of the women who came to their home, and Flip led her to Christ and baptized her in 1995.

The New York Times explains, “She underwent two religious conversions, as a born-again Christian and as a Roman Catholic, and became in her last decades a staunch foe of abortion, vowing to undo Roe v. Wade, testifying in Congress and bitterly attacking Barack Obama when he ran for president and then re-election.”

Since McCorvey came into their lives, the Benhams have worked towards the end of Roe in America.

Their pro-life work and the work of many others paid off, and the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24, a “historic day that some of us didn’t think would actually happen,” the Benhams say.

“This is really a gospel issue. It is who is Lord and whose laws reign,” explains Flip. “The Supreme Court of the United States of America has finally done what God wants them to do and just overturned that awful case where over 60 million children have been killed in the United States of America.”

Flip reveals that one-third of the generation 49 years old and younger are not alive today because of abortion. The overturn of Roe “isn’t even the beginning of the end, but it is the end of the beginning,” Flip says, quoting Winston Churchill.

The fight against abortion is not over yet, but “God will help us because, at the overturning of this, we have unleashed God’s hand to work,” says Flip. “God is the one that’s going to heal this land.”

“Now it’s our turn to run to the roar and win this battle and take it to the gates of hell. They will not prevail against the literature of Jesus Christ,” Flip proclaims.

Movieguide® previously reported on Norma McCorvey and Flip Benham: 

Pro-life leaders who knew Norma McCorvey, aka “Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade, firmly deny they paid McCorvey to change her abortion rhetoric, as a new documentary claims.

The documentary, AKA JANE ROE, features interviews with McCorvey, who says, “I took their money, and they’d put me out in front of the cameras and tell me what to say. That’s what I’d say.”

When asked by the director if her pro-life views were all an act, McCorvey replied: “Yeah, I did it well too. I am a good actress — of course I’m not acting now.”

However, pro-life leaders like Flip Benham, who baptized McCorvey, say this is simply untrue.

“AKA JANE ROE in no way reflects the real history and miracle of faith that transformed both Miss Norma and Miss Connie. It is, unfortunately, Nick Sweeney’s attempt to rewrite history and shoehorn statements from a dying, hurting woman into his truncated and perverted view of life,” Benham said in a press release.

“We never paid Miss Norma a penny,” Benham said. “We certainly helped Miss Norma and Miss Connie Gonzales (her lesbian partner at the time) to get back on their feet after Jasbur Ahluwalia, the owner and abortionist at A Choice for Women fired them. They had no source of income. Many in our group would donate to help them get along, but we did this for all the abortion mill employees who quit their jobs and trusted Jesus. We would help them find work, find church homes, take care of their kids, whatever we could do for them we did.” …

McCorvey’s ultimate pro-life legacy is so staunch that even the New York Times complained in her obituary that she was not the “idealized Jane Roe crusader many Americans visualized.”

Furthermore, the paper reported, “She underwent two religious conversions, as a born-again Christian and as a Roman Catholic, and became in her last decades a staunch foe of abortion, vowing to undo Roe v. Wade, testifying in Congress and bitterly attacking Barack Obama when he ran for president and then re-election.”
