NOPD is looking for whoever poured red paint resembling blood on a statue of the Virgin Mary and a memorial to aborted fetuses at a church in Algiers.

The vandalism happened at Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church.

Crews have cleaned the paint off the statue and headstone.

It comes as emotions remain high on both sides of the abortion debate following the overturning of the Roe V Wade decision at the US Supreme Court.

There have also been some protest rallies locally and celebrations as Louisiana now outlaws nearly all abortions and all of the abortion clinics in Louisiana have closed their doors.
