TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Roe V. Wade decision last week, protests have taken place across the country and in Vigo County.

On Saturday, dozens gathered outside the Vigo County Courthouse to make their voices heard.

Ana Smith said she was distraught when she heard the verdict. She attended the protest on behalf of her family.

“I’m standing here today for the rights of my daughters. For the rights of my nieces. For the rights of all women.”

She said seeing the crowd bring signs and participating in chants was a heart-warming experience.

“It’s empowering. This is empowering,” Smith said. “This is wonderful to see, all these women come out and voice how they’re feeling right now.”

The protest comes on the heels of Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb’s comments that he was in favor of legislation restricting abortions.

Protestor Shea Molone said she was there to voice to politicians, like Holcomb, she was against any potential bill.

“All we can really do is show our representatives that we don’t feel that way, we need them to do something about this because their constituents don’t feel like the Supreme Court is doing what they should be doing,” she said.

Smith said she believed the best way for people to make their voices heard was to vote.

“Start looking at the people we’re electing into office. If they are not representing what you believe in, you need to go out and vote,” she said. “It does matter. Every vote matters.”

Holcomb said the state’s lawmakers will discuss abortion laws when they meet for a special session on July 25th.
