Watch: Pro-Abortion Activist Climbs Bridge To Stop Traffic


The lunacy has begun.

A pro-abortion activist climbed to the top of the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge in Washington D.C. on Friday.

The man has been identified as Guido Reichstadter and his goal was to stop traffic on the bridge.

As of the time of this article he’s still on top of it.

Fox News dropped these details:

A man climbed the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge in Washington, D.C. on Friday to protest the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

The man, who has revealed himself on Twitter as Guido Reichstadter, began climbing the bridge at around 11 a.m., according to FOX 5 DC. While the man was on the bridge, traffic came to a halt while officials tried to contact the man.

A large inflatable was placed under the demonstrator at around 12 p.m.

Reichstadter posted on Twitter while on top of the bridge at 3:24 p.m., stating “Let’s shut it down nonviolently day after day after day till out [sic] rights are protected.” The archway is 70 feet tall.

The man even slept up there:

NBC 4 News covered the story too:

In the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade on Friday, a pro-abortion-rights advocate scaled one of the soaring arches of the Frederick Douglass Bridge in protest.

The protester was seen atop one of the bridge’s arches in Southwest D.C., flying a green banner and waving a yellow flag that read “Don’t tread on my uterus” and featured an illustration of the organ, shortly after the justices announced the decision ending a constitutional right to an abortion.

A Twitter user called Guido Reichstadter said he climbed the bridge to call on Congress to protect abortion access under federal law.
