Busy Philipps is arrested for protesting for reproductive rights at the Supreme Court

Busy Philipps was arrested while protesting for abortion rights.

On Thursday, Vice Media reported via Twitter that the Girls5eva actress was arrested in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. Protesters have taken to the court in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, which guaranteed federal protection for abortion, on June 24.

In Vice Media’s video, Philipps was asked by an offscreen person why she came to the protest, to which she responded, “For equality.”
