Pro-abortion protesters march on SCOTUS justices’ homes, clash with police – report

Police reportedly had to intervene Saturday as pro-abortion protesters demonstrated outside the Maryland residences of Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts.

The protests came after Politico published a leaked draft ruling from the court, authored by Justice Samuel Alito, that would overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established the so-called constitutional right to abortion.

In response, pro-abortion activists organized marches on the homes of multiple justices, including Kavanaugh and Roberts, the chief justice — both of whom live in Maryland.

The protesters started at Kavanaugh’s home and then moved on to Roberts’ residence, according to WUSA.

At one point, the protesters clashed with police, prompting a warning from law enforcement, a report said.

“Cops stood guard outside the justices’ homes and, after what appeared to be a clash with demonstrators, ordered the activists to leave. At least one officer threatened to arrest and charge the protesters for violating Maryland law,” the Daily Mail reported.

During the leftist demonstrations, protesters chanted pro-abortion lines like “Keep abortion safe and legal,” “Your life is a lie!” and “We will not go back!” They also chanted “No uterus, no opinion” and “The world is watching.”

Videos posted to social media captured the atmosphere of the leftist demonstration, including the police presence:

The draft majority opinion that sparked the liberal uproar showed that the court had voted to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 ruling that upheld Roe.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Alito wrote in the leaked draft. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

“The inescapable conclusion is that a right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the Nation’s history and traditions,” he added. “The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion.”
