Politics : 17 House Democrats arrested at abortion rights rally

17 House Democrats arrested at abortion rights rally

Seventeen House Democrats were detained Tuesday at an abortion rights rally protesting the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.

Driving the news: U.S. Capitol Police said that it started arresting demonstrators after they failed to follow their three warnings to stop blocking a street in Washington, D.C. near the Supreme Court.

The lawmakers are expected to be released and fined.

USCP said they made "a total of 35 arrests for Crowding, Obstructing or Incommoding" including the lawmakers.

Axios counted 17 members of Congress within the cordoned off area where Capitol Police kept arrestees.

Protesters sat down on First Street NE outside the Capitol building and blocked the road.

The 17 lawmakers are:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.),
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.)
Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.)
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.)
Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.)
Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-N.Y.)
Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.)
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.)
Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.)
Rep. Sara Jacobs (D-Calif.)
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.)
Rep. Andy Levin (D-Mich.)
Rep. Alma Adams (D-N.C.)
Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.)
Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas)
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.)
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.)

What they're saying: "There is no democracy if women do not have control over their own bodies and decisions about their own health, including reproductive care," said Maloney after being arrested.

"Our country has never really made big changes, not expanded rights, based on some senators and representatives having a lovely conversation in the Capitol. It happens because of social movements. It happens because people march, people protest, people organize, people get arrested," said Levin.

Asked if they are planning future actions along these lines, Speier — who led the protest — said, “Stay tuned.”

I just saw the photos on CNN. They literally put AOC in handcuffs!

To her credit, she was courageous the whole time one of the cops violently forced her away.

Wrong, dummy. Politics doesn't show on GD for me (and never has), which is where I say it first and why I made the comment I did.

Yeah, because raising one’s fist in the air really makes it look like she is faking it.

You and everyone else who claim she was pretending to be cuffed just made that up.

Is it creative to have an uncreative signature such as this one?

Re: 17 House Democrats arrested at abortion rights rally

Warren, I realize you have a tendency to "Monkey See No Evil" but come on.

Re: 17 House Democrats arrested at abortion rights rally

I disagree.
I doubt she was faking it and she came out and said that she put her hands behind her back so as not to appear threatening.

Those who think she was faking being cuffed made that up as they will do with those they hate.

Lol!

Re: 17 House Democrats arrested at abortion rights rally

Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) were among seventeen lawmakers arrested during a pro-abortion protest near the Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Though neither was handcuffed during the arrests, both pretended to have wrist restraints on.

However, several media outlets did not let the absence of handcuffs deter them from making it seem that the pair had been restrained.

ABC News shared two photos to Twitter with Ocasio-Cortez and Omar pictured with their hands behind their backs as if they had been handcuffed.

The ABC News story that is attached to the tweet fails to mention no handcuffs were present until the fifth paragraph.

Re: 17 House Democrats arrested at abortion rights rally

No, she FAKED being in cuffs, the lying bitch! A few seconds later she held up her fist in a defiant gesture. And the police did NOT escort her away violently. They simply walked with her.

Just a photo op for those fucking Democrat/Socialists.

Oh sorry, I didn't see that it was you. You were obviously being sarcastic.
