Pro-abortion protesters plan to “shut down” Supreme Court ahead of ruling

Tomorrow, a leftist activist group dubbed “Shut Down DC” is expected to try to live up to its name.

However, they do not want to shut down the entire city. They merely wish to obstruct the Supreme Court.

According to the group’s website, they will block the Supreme Court building’s three vehicular entrance points, preventing the justices from arriving and doing their duties. And why would they do something like this? Because they feel the Supreme Court is about to rule in a way that effectively overturns Roe v. Wade.

It’s unclear how they hope to prevent the verdict from taking effect, but this doesn’t sound like a well-thought-out strategy in the first place.

The activist group “Shut Down DC” plans to “blockade the streets around the Supreme Court” on Monday, according to its website, as part of a protest that aims to “shut down” the Supreme Court as it prepares to hand down a ruling that could overturn Roe v. Wade.

The protest is planned amid rising fears about the safety of Supreme Court justices following the arrest, in the middle of the night Wednesday outside the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, of an armed man who reportedly said he intended to kill the justice.

The incident led to criticism of Senator Schumer for past comments appearing to threaten Supreme Court justices. It also raised pressure on the House to pass a measure, already approved by the Senate, to expand security protections for high court justices and their families.

The members of the January 6 committee told us that shutting down the government’s usual operations was an insurgency. Isn’t it an insurgency to shut down the highest level of the judicial branch? Will the FBI find down all of these people and condemn them to long prison terms?

“Guess what, we’re gonna #ShutDownSCOTUS on Monday,” the group said on Twitter on Thursday, alongside an image of the Supreme Court’s June calendar. “SHUT DOWN SCOTUS” written in all capital letters on the group’s website.
