Pro-choice protesters descend on Coney Barrett’s house with blood and doll accessories
Pro-choice protesters gathered Saturday outside the Virginia home of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, dressed in clothes that appeared to be soaked in blood and holding doll toys.
“Abortion on demand and without excuses,” read signs held by members of the Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights group on Saturday as they stood outside Barrett’s home in Falls Church.
The protesters were armed with doll accessories and wore pants that appeared to be soaked in blood to show a future of forced births if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
Protests have erupted outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices in recent weeks following the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion warning that the nation’s top court could overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Your neighbor says post-Roe, we say hell no!” protesters shouted outside Barrett’s house earlier this month. “Hey-hey, ho-ho, the maid has to go!”
Members of the Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights group staged protests at Dodger Stadium, outside the Supreme Court and other locations.
Other pro-choice activists linked to radical abortion group ‘Jane’s Revenge’ have claimed responsibility for various attacks on pro-life pregnant womennotancy centers across the country in recent days.
“We will never stop, back down, slow down or back down. We didn’t mean to, but it’s upon us, and so we must deal with it proportionately. We exist in confluence and solidarity with all others in the struggle for full liberation,” the members of “Jane’s Revenge” said in a letter last week. “Our recourse now is to defend ourselves and build strong, caring communities of support, so that we can heal ourselves without the need for the medical industry or any other intermediary. In attacking, we find joy, courage and we strip away the veneer of inscrutability held by these violent institutions.”
The letter claimed responsibility for various attacks such as those in Portland, Eugene and Gresham in Oregon, as well as Olympia, Lynwood and Vancouver in Washington State.
Religious leaders have since called on the The Department of Justice will investigatepursue and “publicly condemn these unlawful attacks”.
“We call on you to publicly condemn these unlawful attacks; to engage in vigorous efforts to prevent, investigate and prosecute them; and to proactively engage with affected faith communities to ensure that their concerns and needs matters of security are satisfied,” said the letter sent to the attorney general’s office last week by CatholicVote reads.
