Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin was pushed to the ground by cops during Roe v. Wade protest. As many of you know, females’ reproductive rights were stripped from them due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade. And in solidarity, many people took the streets this weekend to share their disgust and shock. One of these protesters was former Full House star, Jodie Sweetin. But she was met with opposition from cops and shoved to the ground by the very people who were meant to protect her.
Jodie Sweetin took to E.T to share her experience at the Roe v. Wade protest. She was in Los Angeles on Saturday when the event transpired:
“I mean, there was not an official organization running it, there were a lot of people there, several hundred people there. It was peaceful, we were marching through the streets We had legal observers there to make sure we were well within our First Amendment rights,” Sweetin said of Saturday’s abortion rights protest. “So, we were using our right to protest and stand up against something that we feel really strongly about, and the biggest thing I want to say is, this is not about me.”

Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin was pushed to the ground by cops during Roe v. Wade protest. But the point she is making sure this isn’t about her. This is about all females (and males) fighting for what’s right and being met with aggression.
The violence was unnecessary and reinforced the issue itself. Society is bent on controlling women. But we have a feeling this won’t be the last celebrity in a predicament like this. This Roe v. Wade issue is topical and intense. But it is good to see women in positions of power in pop culture standing up for what is right. And remember, she is just an example.
Think about how many other women were checked into the ground during all these as well. It is heartbreaking, but at least their fighting for a genuine cause. This will be the first of many Roe v. Wade protests. Let’s hope justice prevails.
