Abortion activists plan to block Supreme Court to prevent judges from overturning Roe

The Epoch Times this week revealed more details about radical abortion activists’ plans to blockade the U.S. Supreme Court building on June 13.

Threats and violence against the court and pro-life lawyers have increased since news broke in May of a leaked draft ruling showing the judges overturning Roe v. Wade. Authorities expect more violence when the court decides on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health abortion case in Mississippi later this month.

LifeNews reported last week about the left-wing pro-abortion group Shut Down DC, which plans to blockade the streets around the Supreme Court building on June 13 to shut it down.

“On June 13, one of the Supreme Court’s decision days in 2022, we plan to blockade the streets around the Supreme Court to stand up for the transformative change our communities need,” the group’s website says.

This week, The Epoch Times released more details about the plan based on footage obtained online from a Shut Down DC meeting.

Discussion at the meeting suggests abortion activists plan to hold a “sit-in” to block the three vehicle entrances to the Supreme Court building to prevent the judges and court staff from entering the abortion decision and release, the news channel discovered.

“The goal is to create a decision dilemma by proposing the court, Congress, and law enforcement.” [and the political leaders that oversee them] with three unacceptable [to them] options,” the group wrote during a presentation at the meeting, according to the report.

The group said it wants to “escalate the crisis” by forcing the police to remove them or the government to meet their demands, the report continues.

Here’s more from the Epoch Times:

Protesters at the Shut Down DC rally also suggested that their actions may not be constitutionally protected.

“We can talk about some action ideas that push the boundaries of constitutionally protected speech,” one activist said during the video call.

Another advised protesters to be careful what they said.

“There can be people on every major call who may not have good intentions, so if there’s something you may not want to see on Fox News or any of the conservative news outlets, you may not want to say it on this call,” she said.

About 60 people attended the online meeting of several activist groups, including Showing Up for Racial Justice DC (SURJ-DC), Rainforest Action Network, and SCOTUS6, which is affiliated with Ruth Sent Us, the report said.

The Supreme Court has not yet decided on the abortion case. Still, the Department of Homeland Security released a report in mid-May warning that radical abortion activists plan to set fire to or storm the Supreme Court building and threaten the judges and their officers. The report indicates that these pro-abortion extremists also plan to attack churches and other places of worship with violence and vandalism. To kill lawyers. Suppose the court overturns Roe v. Wade.

Since the leaked abortion ruling broke in early May, Americans have witnessed a wave of vandalism, arson, assault, and threats against the Supreme Court, churches, pro-life organizations, and lawyers.

At least three pro-life organizations have been victims of arson in recent weeks and dozens of cases of vandalism, assault, and threats.

Judge Samuel Alito, the author of the draft opinion, and his family have been moved from their home to a safe location due to threats and possible violence. The U.S. Department of Justice provides additional security to the judges and their families.

At least two pro-abortion groups have called for churches, particularly Catholic churches, to be targeted by abortion activists’ outcry. And a group posted the addresses of Supreme Court justices online to urge people to protest outside their homes.

“The leaked draft memo stating that the Supreme Court struck down #RoeVWade is a CRUELTY, but it is not yet law and need not be but what they intend to do and will do if WE don’t stop them. Stand up! & HELL HELL!” the group Rise 4 Abortion Rights wrote on Twitter.

Even prominent pro-abortion groups use words that indicate possible rebellion and violence. Earlier this month, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, executive director of Women’s March, warned that abortion activists would be “ungovernable” until the government legalizes abortion on demand.

“For the women of this country, this is going to be a summer of rage. Until our government starts working for us and codifies our abortion rights, we will be IMPOSSIBLE,” Carmona wrote on Twitter. “This is a fight for” [abortion] rights. And it’s a fight we will win.”

Since Roe in 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
