DeRidder residents remember Roe v. Wade - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

DeRidder residents remember Roe v. Wade

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on tonight.

39 years after Roe v. Wade, the debate continues. Tonight, KPLC's Haley Rush takes us to DeRidder as they remember the landmark decision to legalize abortion.

Plus, LeAnn Rimes brought down the house last night at the Golden Nugget Casino. As KPLC's Erika Ferrando reports, Rimes is the first of many big names to take the stage.

And, it's now required for high school graduates in Arizona. We take the so-called Civics Test to the streets of Lake Charles to see how much you know. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo puts viewers to the test.

Also, we're set to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King with parades. Meteorologist Zack Fradella has our forecast.

We'll see you tonight at Ten. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
