Democrat Lawmakers Arrested During Abortion Rights Protest In DC

Objectivity 3.2 | Credibility 4.2 | Relevance 4.8

Among the 17 Democrat Representatives arrested on Tuesday at a pro-abortion rally near the Capitol were AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), Omar, Pressley, and Tlaib.  The U.S. Capitol Police tweeted at 1:20pm that it began arresting protestors blocking First Street NE and by 1:35pm the area was cleared of demonstrators.  It has been nearly one month since Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court—a ruling that angered Democrats, and led House Democrats to create a pair of bills protecting access to abortion that stand little chance of passing the 50-50 Senate.
