Actress Jodie Sweetin had a taste of equality this week when she was pushed to the ground by Los Angeles police officers during an abortion rights protest on Sunday.
Video footage of the incident was shared to social media Sunday as Sweetin, 40, led a group of people protesting the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling.
Photographer Michael Ade captured the push. In the video, two Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers can be seen shoving Sweetin off an embankment on the side of the highway. Sweetin lands hard on one knee before quickly getting back up. The crowd can be heard chanting “No justice, no peace” in the background.

One Twitter user had this to say after viewing the video:
Why did Full House’s Jodie Sweetin just block traffic and attack police in California to protest Roe being overturned — does she realize she’s in a state where abortion is still legal?— Paul A. Szypula (@Bubblebathgirl) June 27, 2022
In case everyone missed it, 24/7 abortions are still legal in CA. Fascinating how these people protest for something that hasn’t changed for them.— Jason Roberge (@JasonRobergeVA) June 27, 2022
