ABILENE, Texas -

Wednesday was the 41st anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Roe vs. Wade case that legalized abortion.

It remains a powerful factor in the politics and positions of many Americans.  

A prayer vigil and protest against abortion was held Wednesday in front of the federal courthouse in Abilene.

Most of those in attendance were members of the San Angelo Catholic Diocese.
