Candlelight Vigil Memorial of Roe v. Wade Decision
January 21 from 6pm to 7pm
Outdoor Event - Dress accordingly
Gather at the Shelby County Courthouse, east steps, for the annual Candlelight Vigil. The event is a time for prayer and witness for those affected directly and indirectly by abortion. The Candlelight Vigil sponsored by Shelby County Right to Life is held on the eve of the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton decisions which invalidated laws in all 50 states which had protected women and children from abortion. The Vigil is a family friendly event attended by people of all ages. Guest speakers will be Nathan and Mollie Verdier, founders of Morgan’s Place Cemetery in Shelby County designated for the humane burial of children who die in the womb prior to birth. The Verdiers recently testified in the successful passage of Senate Bill 27 which has been signed by the governor and requires humane burial of babies lost to abortion. More information can be found at the Shelby County Right to Life website.
Bring wind-protected candles or battery operated lights.
