Ryan's speech disrupted by protester



Midway through Ryan's speech, Laura Mills, 21, of Washington, D.C., began shouting in an attempt to disrupt Ryan's speech.
A member of the abortion rights group Code Pink, Mills walked through the upper reaches of the Forum carrying a bright pink banner that said, "Vagina - Can't Say it, Don't Legislate it."
Paul Ryan opposes abortion even in cases of rape or incest, and I do not stand for that," Mills said. She said "an angry Ron Paul person" gave her credentials that enabled her to get inside the arena.
