Iowa: Shocking moment Driver plows through protesters

A car crashed into abortion activists after protests turned violent following the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade ruling.

Troubled protesters could be heard screaming and banging on the truck’s hood and windows, begging it to stop as it pulled into activists in Ceder Rapids, Iowa, in the United States.

The shocking moment was caught on camera yesterday when a woman’s foot was run over while another was bruised after being thrown sideways by the imposing vehicle.

The TikTok video showed a protester narrowly escaping being pulled over before the driver sped away.

Tensions rose after the US Supreme Court’s bombshell ruling overturning the 1973 decision between Roe and Wade.

It means the court ended nearly 50 years of constitutional protections for abortion and is expected to result in abortion bans in about half of US states.

Judge Alito said in the final opinion released Friday that Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 decision upholding abortion rights was wrong on the day of its decision and must be overturned.

Following the landmark ruling, tens of thousands took to the streets with pro-choice activists in New York City, Los Angeles and Washington DC.

In Phoenix, police fired tear gas at protesters after they appeared to breach the State Senate building. Staff were evacuated but there were no reports of injuries.

But at least 25 were arrested in New York City after some 17,000 were taken to Washington Square Park.

They then marched through the streets to Grand Central Station, Times Square and Bryant Park, stopping in front of the home of conservative newspapers Fox News and the New York Post and shouting, “Burn it down!” and spray-painting “F**k * Fox’ on the side of the building.

The decision to overthrow Roe vs. Wade came amid public opinion polls showing that a majority of Americans oppose overthrowing Roe vs. Wade and leaving the issue of leaving abortion entirely up to the states.

President Joe Biden said “it’s a sad day for the court and the country” as pro-lifers urged his administration to find a way to overturn the decision.

Here in the UK, over 100 protesters gathered outside the US Embassy in London to protest the decision.

Judith Orr, deputy chair of the Abortion Rights Campaign Group, which claims to have organized the demonstration, said protesters were “brimming with rage and rage” at the decision and warned the consequences would be “grim”.

She said: “You can’t really overstate the impact it’s going to have, women are going to die, rural women, women who don’t have access to online care, African American women, women of color, working class poor women, that are the people who will suffer the most.”

She added: “We stand by you. We will fight until you regain your rights and we are filled with emotion for these women tonight.

“It’s hard for me to imagine in the 21st century that they would do this, that they would urge people to risk their lives to control their own fertility.

“It’s absolutely appalling and devastating tonight.”

The crowd stood and listened to speakers condemning the US Supreme Court ruling while holding signs many reading “Our Bodies, Our Choice.”

One attendee arrived in a costume from the dystopian novel and television series The Handmaid’s Tale, in which society is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property.
