How did Abortion become legalized?

In 1973, abortion was legalized in America; this decision was made off of lies and hypothetical situations.

Norma McCorvey (see picture), more commonly known as “Jane Roe,” lied about being raped, and, in fact, never had an abortion.[1] By the time abortion was legalized, her child that she was carrying when she started the lawsuit was 2 years old.[2] She now actively speaks out against this "procedure."

The Does’ case for the legalization of abortion was completely hypothetical, as Mrs. Doe was not pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. Nevertheless, they presented a case for her need for an abortion if she ever became pregnant.[3]
This is the story of abortion's legal beginnings in America.
