(Bloomberg) — More than 180 people were arrested near the US Supreme Court in Washington, including Democratic lawmakers, during a protest in support of abortion rights.

Hundreds of people streamed to the court Thursday and shut down traffic briefly in reaction to Roe v. Wade being overturned last week. Organizers, including Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Center for Popular Democracy, said they wanted to break a record for the most women arrested in a single action on Capitol Hill.  

US Capitol Police said they took away 181 people for blocking an intersection on a street that runs by the court. Among them was Congressional candidate Brittany Ramos DeBarros, who’s running for a House seat in New York City’s Staten Island borough, according to a statement from her campaign.  

“I am here to make sure every woman in every state of this country has the right to an abortion,” said Representative Judy Chu, a California Democrat, who was among those sitting in an intersection and arrested by police. “We saw the devastating decision of the Supreme Court, and it’s already putting lives in danger.”
