President Joe Biden remained silent over the weekend as pro-abortion rioters threatened churches and terrorized Supreme Court justices in effort to intimidate members of the high bench over a potential reversal of Roe v. Wade.
Law enforcement officials in New York and Pittsburg beefed up weekend security for churches after a shady radical pro-abortion group, Ruth Sent Us, called on supporters to picket religious institutions, especially Catholic ones. In Boulder, Colo., a Catholic church was vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti Tuesday night, although it’s unclear who’s responsible for the damage.
“Whether you’re a ‘Catholic for Choice,’ ex-Catholic, of other or no faith, recognize that six extremist Catholics set out to overturn Roe,” the group tweeted Tuesday ahead of the holiday weekend. “Stand at or in a local Catholic Church Sun May 8. #WarOnWomen #MothersDayStrike.”
The same group rallied its supporters to protest at the six right-leaning Supreme Court justices’ homes. Those are the justices most likely to concur with a majority opinion overturning the landmark decision in Roe that forced states to allow abortion access until the moment of birth.
“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights. We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics,” reads the group’s website, including a link to the justices’ suspected addresses. Stipends were offered to artists who joined their crusade of judicial intimidation, which is explicitly prohibited under federal law as obstruction of justice.
Proponents of abortion picketed at the justices’ homes anyway. Five justices were named on a majority draft opinion from February leaked on Monday last week overturning the 1973 case as ruling precedent. Chief Justice John Roberts, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, remained undecided at the time the opinion was written. Members may have changed their minds since the ruling was authored by Justice Samuel Alito and may still change until the final draft is published by the court this summer. That’s one goal of the violent pressure tactics: to overturn the rule of American law and allow a tiny minority to control the nation.
