(Worthy News) – The US was disrupted during a hearing Wednesday when three rights activists stood up and spoke against the court’s withdrawal in June of the federal right to abortion it had granted through the landmark 1973 case of Roe v Wade, the Associated Press reports.

The protest came less than a week before the November 8 midterm elections.

The Justices had just begun hearing arguments in a case concerning the Bank Secrecy Act when the protestors rose to denounce the court’s June 24 ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: the court decided in Dobbs that abortion is not a constitutional right after all and that the legality or otherwise of the procedure should be determined by voters in individual states.

In the first courtroom disruption since the Dobbs decision, one of the protestors said: “Our right to choose will not be taken away. Women, vote for our right to choose.”

Identified as Emily Archer Paterson, Rolande Dianne Baker, and Nicole Elizabeth Enfield, the protestors were led away by police without resisting and were charged with making a “harangue” in the Supreme Court building and with interfering in the administration of justice, AP said.
