Protesters affiliated with the group CODEPINK heckled Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) during his speech at the Republican National Covention on Wednesday night.

Col. Ann Wright and Laura Mills shouted, “My body my choice,” and “Fund healthcare not warfare.”

The two women caused a small disturbance, but were quickly drown out by chants of “USA, USA” — which has become a common chant at the Convention. Wright and Mills were escorted out of the building by security personnel.

Earlier in the day, CODEPINK activists interrupted speeches made by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in Tampa.
