LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles Unified school board meeting has resumed after being disrupted by protesters who want a school’s Planned Parenthood clinic shut down.
Board President Monica Garcia called a five-minute recess Thursday afternoon after about 15 audience members stood up and refused to stop chanting “Roosevelt High School: Abortion is not health care.”

Garcia called a break so school police could remove the protesters.

The protest came after anti-Planned Parenthood speakers kept coming to the podium while the board was discussing other topics. Board members asked the protesters to wait for the meeting’s public comment portion.

Protesters asked the board to shut down a Planned Parenthood clinic at Roosevelt, which is east of downtown Los Angeles. They say it’s racist and detrimental to girls’ health
