AUSTIN -- A dozen abortion rights supporters who were arrested last month at the Texas Capitol are facing new charges.
Twelve members of the group “Rise Up Texas” are now charged with disrupting a public meeting.
They were arrested on the day thousands flocked to the Texas Capitol for a final vote on the controversial abortion legislation.
All 12 were initially released without charges, now they say they're being targeted for retaliation.
The maximum punishment is a two thousand dollar fine and 180 days in jail.
