Six abortion protesters were arrested Tuesday after temporarily occupying the waiting room of an Alexandria clinic.

Police confirmed Wednesday the activists were fined and released after a protest at the Alexandria Women’s Health Clinic in the northern Virginia suburb of Washington.

Arrested for trespassing were Terrisa Bukovinac, 40; Lauren Handy, 28; Kristin Turner, 20; Cassidy Shooltz, 22; Jonathan Darnell, 39; and Joan Andrews Bell, 73. 

A clinic spokesperson said the activists handed out roses and talked with patients from 8:20 to 9:25 a.m. while staff called the police.

Correction: Due to an incorrect arrest list provided to The Washington Times, an earlier version of this story listed an activist who merely had been present.
