Patriot AZ leader Jennifer Harrison has garnered attention in recent years for spraying BLM protesters with bear spray and harassing migrants as they cross into the country.

The leader of a far-right extremist group in Arizona sprayed mace into the faces of abortion-rights activists and their children on Sunday night, according to the protesters and eyewitnesses.

The incident happened in downtown Tempe during a second night of protests at the end of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

One eyewitness reported that paramedics were also called to the scene and several protesters were taken away by ambulance for further treatment.
