In 2003, Father Bill Carmody leads several people in an anti-abortion protest in front of the old location for Planned Parenthood on Colorado Avenue. Dozens of people gathered for a mass at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church  to mark the 31st anniversary of the Roev vs. Wade court decision that paved the way for legaized abortion nationwide.   In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court challenged a statute of Texas that said abortion was a crime and sided with an unmarried Texas women who wanted to safely and legally end her pregnancy.   After the mass at the church the group marched several blocks were they peacefully protested the landmark decision.  Some of the marchers carried roses and then placed them in the bushes in front of Planned Parenthood before they left. The Gazette, Bryan Oller
