This is reported by TASS with reference to activists at the scene.

According to the agency, several dozen protesters in defense of the right to abortion lined up across Sixth Avenue, near its intersection with 42nd Street.

They joined hands and impeded the traffic.

The police first called on the protesters to leave the roadway, and then detained several of them.

After that, the movement was unblocked.

On June 24, the US Supreme Court overturned constitutional guarantees for abortions without state restrictions.

After that, several hundred people gathered at the US Supreme Court to protest against this decision.
