Los Angeles police officers reportedly pushed “Full House” star Jodie Sweetin to the ground on Saturday as she protested the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Protests have erupted across the United States since the Supreme Court’s ruling was announced on Friday. The decision overturned nearly 50 years of precedent and allows states to ban abortions.
The Los Angeles Police Department said it was aware of the incident.
‘The LAPD is aware of a video clip of a woman being pushed to the ground by officers not allowing the group to walk into and pass the 101 Freeway,’ it said in a statement provided. at People magazine. “The force used will be assessed against LAPD policy and procedure.”
Michael Ade, the photographer who shared the video on social media, said Sweetin was “trying to move a group of peaceful protesters away from the freeway” when she was pushed.
Sweetin was not seriously injured, according to a representative.
“I am extremely proud of the hundreds of people who showed up yesterday to exercise their First Amendment rights and take immediate action to peacefully protest the giant injustices that have been committed by our Supreme Court,” Sweetin said in a statement to ABC News. “Our activism will continue until our voices are heard and action is taken. This will not discourage us, we will continue to fight for our rights. We are not free until we are ALL free.
