California state lawmakers during a legislative session September

The woman—identified as Rebecca Dalelio, 43—tossed the blood
from the visitor’s gallery of the Senate chamber in protest of

two bills tightening regulations of medical vaccine exemptions
,
according to
reports
by the
Los Angeles Times
. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the bills into law
September 10.

Dalelio was one of dozens of anti-vaccine protesters in the
chamber on the 13th. Others had been seated quietly with their
fists raised for more than an hour before the incident. A Facebook
profile matching Dalelio contained multiple anti-vaccine postings,
the Times noted.
