Florida Man Scales Bridge In DC To Protest Roe V. Wade Decision
Share this @internewscast.com

A man climbed the Frederick Douglass bridge in Washington, D.C., Friday to protest the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The Supreme Court voted in a 6-3 decision Friday morning to overturn Roe v. Wade, sending the question of abortion rights back to the states.

Guido Reichstadter, 42, a pro-abortion activist from Miami, Florida, scaled the bridge to protest the court’s decision his friend Max told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Hey I’m at the top of the Frederick Douglass bridge in Washington DC right now & want to know why YOU aren’t in the streets nonviolently shutting down the gov day after day after day till Congress protects abortion rights? Rise Up my Friends!” Reichstadter, the man atop of the bridge, wrote on Twitter Friday.

The Daily Caller News Foundation messaged with Reichstadter, who said he was too busy to speak. Reichstadter said on Twitter that he’s standing up for his 12-year-old daughter’s right to an abortion, and his friends told TheDCNF it’s because the high court’s decision was “illegitimate” and “oppressive.”

“He knows that she’s [his daughter] facing a lifetime of oppression due to what the court just did to her rights today. He didn’t know at the time that the court had come down with the decision when he climbed. But, he definitely did find out while he was up there. He just believes that he needs to do whatever is possible to stand up for his daughter’s rights,” Max told TheDCNF.

“I’ve texted him and I’ve called him a little bit at the request of the police and on my own volition, calling to find out how he’s doing. He said that the police are trying to bring in a crane to come get him or something like that, get him to jump down on that tarp. But, he’s not going to do it until at least 5pm. He wants to get as much attention as possible,” he added.

Reichstadter hung a green fabric banner showing his solidarity with the pro-abortion movement that’s swept Latin America called “Marea Verde.”

More than two dozen Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers, the D.C. Fire Department, District Department of Transportation officials, construction workers, and employees of the bridge maintenance team were on scene.

Authorities put up a sign facing the bridge offering “cold water” for Reichstadter to come down.
