AOC among handful of Democrats arrested at protest of Roe reversal

Several House Democrats were arrested by Capitol Police Tuesday at a protest on the House steps against the Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn the federal right to abortion.

Members who were seen being detained by officers included Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Jackie Speier (D-CA), and Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ).

Abortion rights proponents gathered at the Capitol to express their anger over the court’s ruling in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
