A Tuesday abortion rights demonstration at the Supreme Court resulted in the arrest of 35 people, including 17 members of Congress, according to a statement released by the U.S. Capitol Police. The protest is the latest of several staged around the nation’s Capitol since June, when Supreme Court justices overturned Roe v.
