Philipps wrote about the protest in a lengthy Instagram post in which she shared photos and videos of her arrest. 

'I can think of no better way to use my privilege and voice than to amplify the message that bodily autonomy IS a human right,' she wrote, 'as it is ACTUALLY the exact same thing as the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.' 

Philipps described the protest as 'an action of peaceful civil disobedience,' saying the intention was 'to let lawmakers but more importantly, the people who will be most impacted by this outrageous decision, know that we will not back down, we will not give in and we will not stop fighting until there is equality for all Americans.'

In addition to Planned Parenthood leadership, Philipps was joined by members from a number of groups, including Catholic's for Choice, the Working Family's Party, The National Council of Jewish Women, and the Center For Popular Democracy Action, according to her post.
