Rep. Judy Chu was among 181 angry protesters who were arrested Thursday for blocking an intersection near the Supreme Court to demonstrate their anger at the overturning of Roe v. Wade. 

The protesters sat on the concrete in Washington, D.C.’s 90 degree weather as U.S. Capitol Police said they warned them three times to move before they began making arrests. 

‘This momentum will only build due to the 38 million women who’ll be affected by this when they see that abortion has been banned in their state,’ Chu said ahead of her arrest. 

Chu, a California Democrat, authored the Women’s Health Protection Act, the House-passed bill that would have codified abortion rights. Members of the Senate, even Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, said the bill was too far-reaching.

‘When I first heard Roe was overturned, I immediately thought of who would be most harmed by this decision: a young girl who is a survivor of rape, a mother who cannot afford to travel to another state to access critical care, an expecting mother with an ectopic pregnancy whose life is in danger because she cannot have an abortion,’ Chu said in a statement. 

‘So, when I think of all these women – and more – the decision to join a peaceful demonstration to make clear we will not allow the clock to be rolled back on abortion rights so easy. She then called on the Supreme Court to abolish the filibuster to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act.  

In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, released Friday, the Supreme Court voted 6-3 to allow Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban to move forward and 5-4 to do away with Roe v. Wade and sent shockwaves throughout the country. Every day since fiery pro-choice protesters have gathered outside the Supreme Court, which erected metal fencing and staged more security out front in anticipation of the decision.

Republican states across the country have moved to restrict abortion or enact ‘trigger laws’ they already had on the books, laws that were passed in anticipation of the high court overturning Roe. 

President Biden on Thursday said he would back a carveout of the filibuster to codify abortion rights. 

‘The first and foremost thing we should do, is make it clear how outrageous this decision was and how much it impacts – not just on a woman’s right to choose, which is a critical, critical piece – but on privacy generally,’ Biden said.

‘And so I’m going to be talking to the governors as to what actions they think I should be taking as well.’

He added that the ‘most important thing’ was his belief that the protections granted in Roe v. Wade should be codified into law.

‘The way to do that is to make sure that Congress votes to do that,’ the president said.

‘And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this.’
