Protester Tries to Interrupt Paul Ryan Speech

A 21-year-old woman, sitting right next to our press section at the Republican National Convention, was escorted out of the Tampa Bay Times Forum as Paul Ryan addressed the delegates.

The woman, a member of Code Pink, waved a pink sign with the word “VAGINA” on it, and she shouted, “My body. My choice.” Those around her tried to muffle her shouted by countering her with cries of “USA. USA.”

Ryan continued his speech, even as some on the convention floor looked up to her section at the disturbance.

I captured this picture of her being escorted away.
