A radical group operating under the name ‘Ruth Sent Us’ called for protests at the homes of Supreme Court Justices Thursday to protest the possible elimination of abortion rights protected under Roe V Wade.
“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights,” the group’s website reads. “We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics.”
From Fox News:
Fox News is told there has been a strong police presence at the justices’ homes following the leak. The group says they will visit the homes on May 11.
The D.C. Police Department has erected fencing around the Supreme Court building in anticipation of escalating protests this weekend. Police have also activated protest-response units through Sunday.
The move comes after a draft copy of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion upholding a Mississippi abortion law leaked to Politico. The decision would overturn Roe v. Wade if adopted by four other justices.
Chief Justice John Roberts described the leak as a “betrayal” of the court on Tuesday and ordered an investigation into the incident.
