The Full House alum, 40, can be seen in a video speaking into a megaphone from the side of a freeway ramp before officers violently push her to the ground. The incident occurred following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn 1973's Roe v. Wade and the constitutional right to abortion. "The LAPD is aware of a video clip of a woman being pushed to the ground by officers not allowing the group to enter on foot and overtake the 101 freeway," the LAPD tells PEOPLE in a statement. "The force used will be evaluated against the LAPD's policy and procedure. "As the nation continues to wrestle with the latest Supreme Court decision, the Los Angeles Police Department will continue to facilitate 1st Amendment rights, while protecting life and property. Sweetin's rep tells PEOPLE that the actress is OK after the demonstration. For more on the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, listen below to our daily podcast PEOPLE Every Day. "I'm extremely proud of the hundreds of people who showed up yesterday to exercise their First Amendment rights and take immediate action to peacefully protest the giant injustices that have been delivered from our Supreme Court," Sweetin says in a statement. 36 Celebrities Who Have Shared Their Abortion Stories to Help Women Feel Less Alone MediaPunch/Shutterstock "Our activism will continue until our voices are heard and action is taken," she adds. "This will not deter us, we will continue fighting for our rights. We are not free until ALL of us are free." Michael Ade, the photographer who shared the videos of LAPD shoving Sweetin and other protesters, claimed that she "was trying to lead a group of peaceful protestors away from the freeway" before the mayhem unfolded. "Jodi is the definition of a real one and fortunately she's okay!" Ade added in the caption. Friday's 6-to-3 ruling reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, giving states the power to pass their own laws around abortion. Since the decision, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri and South Dakota have already banned abortion in their states, after putting "trigger bans" in place that governors enacted after the SCOTUS ruling. Activists protesting against the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade marched onto the 110 Freeway in Downton Los Angeles on June 24. Jill Connelly/ZUMA Press Wire Protests have since erupted around the country, and President Joe Biden has spoken out against the ruling, which he called the "realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court." The decision comes after the SCOTUS opinion was leaked to Politico last month. A poll conducted by CNN has since found that 66 percent of Americans did not want Roe v. Wade to be overturned.
