Six Protesters Were Arrested in South Carolina Following an Abortion Judgment

After demonstrators gathered in downtown Greenville, South Carolina, on Saturday evening to oppose and celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, six persons were taken into custody.

Officers kept an eye on the demonstrations and kept the opposing sides apart, according to a statement from the Greenville Police Department. The department stated that around 100 protestors were initially anticipated for an hour-long rally, but that 400 to 500 individuals showed up and the protest lasted more than an hour.

According to the department, officers had to deal with parties trying to cross from one side to the other and individuals on the road on multiple instances.

Officials said that after receiving many warnings, cops reported arresting a protester, which caused additional protesters to interfere and be detained.
