Three abortion activists were arrested Wednesday inside the U.S. Supreme Court for disrupting oral arguments in an unrelated case to protest the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

USA Today reports the three women stood up and shouted in the middle of court proceedings, interrupting lawyer Dan Geyser before being escorted out by police. Geyser was speaking to the justices about a banking case unrelated to the abortion issue.

“Our right to choose will not be taken away,” one woman shouted over the lawyer.

After police removed the first abortion activist from the building, a second woman stood up and began shouting about the same issue, saying, “Women, vote for our right to choose.” She also was removed, according to the report.

Later, according to SCOTUS Blog, a third abortion activist rose and interrupted the lawyer, calling out: “We will restore our freedom to choose. Women of America, vote!”

Here’s more from the blog:

Each of the protesters put out her hands, presumably to allow police officers to put on handcuffs, and left the courtroom quietly and without any resistance.

A press release identified the three women as Emily Paterson of Virginia, Rolande Baker of Arizona, and Nikki Enfield of Virginia.

The lawyers and justices ignored the protesters.

News reports noted that protests inside the U.S. Supreme Court are rare, with the last one occurring in 2015. Such protests also are illegal. Laws protect judges, jurors and witnesses from intimidation so that they can participate in cases fairly and impartially.

According to Fox News, the Supreme Court Public Information Office said all three women were charged with violating Title 40 USC § 6134, which makes it unlawful to make “a harangue or oration, or utter[ing] loud, threatening, or abusive language in the Supreme Court Building,” as well as 18 USC § 1507, which prohibits protests “with the intent of interfering with the administration of justice or with the intent of influencing a judge in the discharge of his or her duty.”

The Supreme Court overturned Roe in the ruling Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health in June. Now, states may protect unborn babies from abortion again. Already 13 are doing so and more are fighting in court to enforce their pro-life laws.

A new report in the New York Times estimates a 6-percent drop in abortions since the June ruling, resulting in more than 10,000 unborn babies saved.
