Prayer Vigil Held for Abortion Ruling
Dozens of people braved rain and chilly temperatures for a prayer vigil on Evansville’s riverfront.
Right to Life of Southwest Indiana conducted the vigil to pray for a Supreme Court ruling that it would consider a victory.
The vigil was held shortly after the high court heard oral arguments on a Mississippi law that bans abortions at 15 weeks.
The state is asking the court to strike down the 1973 Roe-versus-Wade ruling that legalized abortion in the first two trimesters of a pregnancy, and return to the issue to the states.
Right to Life Executive Director Mary Allen Van Dyke told WNIN she’s more optimistic now that conservatives have a 6-to-3 advantage on the Supreme Court.
Former president Donald Trump chose three of the current justices.
A decision on the Mississippi law is not expected before June.
