Arizona Capitol Enclosed in Razor Wire Amid Violent Pro-Abortion Protests


There has been a surge of violent pro-abortion protests near the Arizona Capitol since the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade.

It’s gotten so bad that the Arizona Capitol is now covered in razor wire.

This comes after violent protests erupted outside of the building on Friday while the Arizona Senate was in session.

seven to eight thousand pro-abortion protestors reportedly did $10,000 in damages according to Senate Republicans.

The Capitol will remain closed this week with two lines of razor wire and fencing protecting it from any future violent protests.

Once again, this is what a real insurrection looks like.

Our friends at the Daily Wire have more on the latest development in Arizona:

This week, the Arizona State Capitol will remain closed off with two lines of fencing and razor wire to protect the area from any future pro-abortion protesters.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) requested the Arizona National Guard install razor wire to existing fencing after the rioting and destruction that occurred at the capitol last Friday and Saturday. The protests occurred in response to the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruling overturning a constitutional right to abortion, fully entrusting abortion law to the states.

On Friday, AZDPS estimated around 7,000 to 8,000 pro-abortion protestors flocked to the Arizona State Capitol Complex; some of the mob attempted to breach the Arizona Senate building. The Arizona Senate was in session at the time, undertaking a historic vote to universalize the state’s school choice program.

AZDPS described the force of the mob as so great that it shook the Senate building and bent glass windows and doors. Protesters also vandalized the collection of war memorials surrounding the capitol. Senate Republicans estimated that current damages cost over $10,000.

Pictures have circulated online showing the Capitol protected by razor wire:

Here’s the latest from the AZ Mirror:

The Arizona Capitol is surrounded by fencing and razor wire to keep abortion rights protesters away from the building.

The fences and concertina wire were installed over the weekend by the Arizona National Guard at the request of the Arizona Department of Public Safety over the weekend amid ongoing protests over the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, thus ending the national right to abortion.

In Arizona, that means abortions are now illegal because a law dating back to statehood in 1912 — which was written in the late 1800s — is now enforceable. Lawmakers this year passed a law banning abortions after 15 weeks, but that legislation was designed to go into effect only if Roe was not overturned.

On June 24, the Arizona legislature adjourned its business for the year after state troopers fired tear gas at protesters who had gathered outside to denounce the court ruling. That led to fumes leaking into the building, temporarily disrupting the state Senate’s final night of work.
