RELIGION HUB AP Supreme Court Abortion Catholics

FILE – Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, leads a live-steam service at an empty Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles on May 1, 2020. In the wake of the Supreme Court leak on abortion rights, a call for a day of fasting and prayer came from Gomez, the president of the U.S. bishops conference, and Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Pro-Life Activities. They specifically requested prayers for the overturning of Roe and for “the conversion of the hearts and minds of those who advocate for abortion.” (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, Pool, File)
