Rabid pro-abortion protestors released the personal home addresses of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts, which resulted in large numbers of protesters marching to their homes in protest of the eventual overturn of Roe v. Wade.
The protestors shrieked “codify blue” as they stood outside the private residences of the justices.
Eventually, law enforcement officers were able to successfully dispose the protest, though many of the participants became involved in heated arguments with the police. The protestors had been holding an alleged “Candlelight vigil for Roe v. Wade.”
The protestors, who call themselves the Shutdown DC group, are furious after a leaked Supreme Court draft underscored the likelihood of overruling Roe v. Wade, a landmark 1973 decision regarding abortion.
Outside of the justices’ homes, the protestors declared that “pro life is a lie,” adding that the judges “don’t care if people die.” However, critics have argued that the majority of abortion restrictions account for the safety of a mother in the event of a complicated pregnancy.
In addition, activists also scrawled coat hangers on the street using chalk.
Protests are ongoing, with Shutdown DC poised to begin marking in May, specifically to the personal residence of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, whose opinion had been leaked to the press.
According to the activist group, Alito “is threatening to take away … all these rights.”
The group also added that it is “impossible” to reach Alito personally due to the security fences surrounding the Supreme Court, illuminating why such fences were constructed in the first place.
The group claims that it will be forced to go to Alito’s home due to security measures the Supreme Court has taken to ensure the safety of its justices.
However, the Supreme Court is widely expected to hold firm to the leaked draft, overturning the landmark 1973 decision in the coming weeks.
