Detroit — A protester derailed a Tuesday press conference hosted by the Michigan Democratic Party in Detroit by criticizing elected leaders, including Democrats, of failing to secure abortion rights beyond the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision.

The demonstrator, activist Rebecca Paris, repeated into a microphone "I am not waiting for November" and interrupted the press conference before Attorney General Dana Nessel's scheduled turn at the lectern.
