Protesters arrested after bringing urine and feces in courthouse

Posted: Updated:
(WMC-TV) - More than 12 people have been arrested after protesting the abortion bill.

Activists are charged with a variety of different offenses including resisting arrest and criminal trespass. State troopers found activists with jars filled with paint, urine, and feces. 

Activists say they won't give up.

"From the very beginning we have been talking about what happens next week or the following two months," stated one protester.

The new Texas law requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a  hospital within 30 miles of the clinic. It also outlaws abortions after 20-weeks unless the health of the woman is in immediate danger.
