Pro-Choice Rally Held at Wayne County Courthouse

The Indiana State Legislature is set to return to Indianapolis for a special session called by Governor Eric Holcomb on July 6th. And while the main order of business is the proposed $225 taxpayer refund, Republican Party leaders have indicated that they will take up the abortion issue in the wake of the Supreme Court striking down Roe vs Wade. Locally, pro-choice supporters turned out earlier this week at the Wayne County Courthouse to protest the court's rulling. About 100 protesters gathered at the courthouse, then marched along south 3rd and South A streets, where additional supporters joined. The Rainbow Richmond community group organized the rally and passing motorists honked in support of the protest. Two anti-abortion protesters also rallied, but were escorted away after clashing with a few of the pro-choice supporters.
