Pro-abortion rioters attempt to storm the Arizona Capitol during a session

Pro-abortion rioters attempted to storm the Arizona Capitol building in Phoenix while the state Senate was in session.

Pro-life Republican State Senator Kelly Townsend, who was inside the Senate building, tweeted members of the Senate were “held hostage inside the Senate building”. Townsend said that during a period, senators could “smell tear gas and one member’s children are in the office sobbing in fear.”

“I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately,” she added.

Some Arizona state Democrats were blaming protesters, who were trying to enter the capital through security, Townsend also said. “‘It’s a public building, and they wouldn’t let them in,'” Townsend overheard a Democrat say.

MAGA Senator Wendy Rogers, who was also with her colleagues, said for security reasons, the senators left the Senate chamber and “assembled to take the tunnel to the Chamber”. But the crowd was dispersed and the senators returned to the Senate.

After the Senate went into recess without concluding its proceedings, the Arizona Department of Public Safety announced that tear gas was successfully deployed and protesters continued to vandalize Wesley Bolin Plaza monuments.

“Soldiers deployed gas outside the Senate building after protesters attempted to break the glass,” the Arizona Department of Public Safety said. declared. “The crowd then moved to Wesley Bolin Plaza where some monuments were vandalized. Gas was rolled out again to disburse the crowd.

The riot outside the Arizona Capitol building was among many protests across the country following the Supreme Court’s overturning Roe vs. Wade Friday. Demonstrations took place in Seattle, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Tucson, New York, Reno and Dallas.
