A Message on the Front of the Downtown Portland Public Library was Provided by Lumen Arrt This Evening.

A Sign Illuminated on the Front of the Downtown Portland Public Library For a Vigil Marking the 50th Anniversary of the Signing of Roe v. Wade That the Supreme Court Overruled Last June.

The Full Headline in Yesterday’s “Portland Press Herald” – “Mills Said She Wouldn’t Seek to Alter Maine Abortion Law. What Changed?”

Some of the 100 or so  Supporters of Roe v. Wade Holding Signs at the Portland Vigil between 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm This Evening.

Braving cold temperatures and a light snow fall, about 100 supporters of Roe v. Wade gathered at Monument Square in Portland to protest the decision of the Supreme Court last June that overturned Roe v. Wade.  Today’s vigil – “Lights on Congress Street”  is the 50th anniversary of the signing of Roe v. Wade.

Protestors of the Supreme Court’s decision chanted “Our Bodies – Our Choice” and other chants associated with the supporters of Roe v. Wade.

“What changed?” – part of the headline in yesterday’s front page article in the “Portland Press Herald” – was offensive to some who saw the headline.  “I’m confused by that,” said long-time Portland resident Don Ogier.  He said he found the headline  misleading and a cheap shot at the Governor intended to sell newspapers at her expense.

All that has changed is the Supreme Court’s unpopular decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last June.  A right that had been considered to be “settled law” by some Justices own admission.

The mistrust of the Supreme Court already well established by this decision has only grown more intense in recent days. That’s due to the “investigation” into who at the Court leaked the draft decision that the Court intended to overturn Roe v. Wade. Although the Court interviewed staff members  under oath, no under oath investigation of the Justices themselves was conducted

Is Chief Justice Roberts afraid of the truth?
