Capitol Police removed a man from the U.S. Senate on Tuesday after he began shouting that abortion was a sin, according to the Associated Press.

“Stop Obama,” the man yelled. “Three thousand babies die every single day! Abortion! Abortion! The shedding of innocent blood! [Inaudible.] Thank you John McCain. Abortion is a sin!”

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was discussing leaks of classified information before the man, who was identified as Rives Grogan, began shouting.

“I guess I’ll take a compliment where I can get it,” McCain joked.

Grogan was charged with disruption of Congress.
