Protesters arrested near state Capitol

Posted: Updated:

About a dozen women were taken to jail after they staged a sit-in protest at a crosswalk near the state Capitol.

The women belong to a pro-choice group. They were protesting the Texas abortion hearings over House Bill 2. Those hearings wrapped up Wednesday.

The women, who were chanting, were restrained and then taken to jail by Austin police and state troopers.

A spokesperson tells FOX 7 they will stage protests in other Texas cities over the next couple of days.
