WASHINGTON, D.C.(LifeSiteNews) – Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who will take a seat on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) in June, has refused to condemn the pro-abortion protests outside of the houses of some of her future colleagues.

“What do you think about peaceful protests outside of Supreme Court justices’ homes?” The Washington Post asked Judge Jackson for an article published on Monday. “I don’t have any comment,” she replied.

Jackson also would not comment on whether “it was a good or bad thing” for someone to leak a draft opinion to reverse Roe v. Wade, but she did say it was “a departure from normal order.”

Justices Alito, Barrett, Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts have all been targeted for protests outside their homes. While the protests have not resulted in any direct assaults on SCOTUS justices, they likely break the law according to a former federal prosecutor.

18 U.S. Code § 1507  prohibits demonstrations outside “a building or residence occupied or used by such judge” with the “intent of influencing any judge.”

Andy McCarthy told Fox News on May 10 that the refusal of the White House and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to condemn the protests is motivated by political interests.

“They are elevating their political interest in portraying the draft Supreme Court opinion as extreme over their constitutional duty to execute the laws faithfully and protect both the Court and the justices,” he said.

McCarthy noted that the DOJ acted quickly to order federal oversight into activists at school board meetings who came to speak out against mask mandates or transgender policies or inappropriate materials, but not against protestors.

“By contrast, the protection of the Supreme Court as an institution, and of the justices’ security, are patently federal matters over which federal law enforcement has clear jurisdiction,” McCarthy told Fox News. “It is inexcusable that the Justice Department is so silent and passive now when it was loud and active over a manufactured controversy as to which it had no jurisdiction.”

In the aftermath of the leak of the Supreme Court majority opinion draft overruling Roe v. Wade, lawless vandals backed by the abortion lobby and pro-abortion politicians have launched riots and violent attacks on pro-life entities across America, from pregnancy centers to churches, and even targeted Justices' homes. 

This widespread, organized effort not only sets a dangerous standard for how groups and individuals may opt to stage demonstrations going forward, but begs the question of how the pro-abortion crowd would behave if and when the Supreme Court officially overturns Roe later this summer.

And, worst of all, the White House has largely turned a blind eye to these riots, with Joe Biden -- who at one time claimed to be personally opposed to abortion due to his Catholic faith -- now acting as the foremost advocate for unfettered abortion access in America.

Biden's nonexistent response must be addressed, and the White House needs to know that the American people demand better from their supposed "leader."

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to stop beating around the bush and finally issue a formal statement condemning the violent riots and attacks on pro-life institutions across our country in the wake of the leaked Supreme Court majority opinion draft overturning Roe v. Wade.

Over Mother's Day weekend, pro-abortion attacks broke out across America, with increasingly depraved activists targeting pregnancy centers, pro-life advocacy organizations, and churches with either disruptive demonstrations or, in some cases, vandalism and outright violence.

Among the most barbaric occurrences was the vicious attack on Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life group headquartered in Madison, where vandals threw a Molotov cocktail into an office window, started a fire on one of its walls, and left a threatening graffiti message reading "If abortions aren't safe then you aren't either."

Review a FULL LIST of other appalling attacks HERE.

They even descended upon the homes of Supreme Court Justices like Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, and Chief Justice John Roberts, who appear poised to formally issue the final blow to Roe v. Wade in the coming weeks, after publishing a map with their private addresses.

The case, which was decided nearly 50 years ago in 1973, saw members of the bench fabricate a constitutional "right" to abortion, depriving individual states from crafting their own laws to protect life. However, should Roe, as expected, be overturned, the matter of abortion would be returned to the states, where it always belonged, giving lawmakers the ability to propose legislation that would either place strong restrictions on the procedure or, in some cases, ban it outright.

And while, of course, freedom of speech must be protected and defended for all Americans, demonstrations that devolve into vandalism, rioting, the use of intimidation tactics against members of the judiciary (or anyone else, for that matter), or violence in any form must NEVER be tolerated.

But the White House seems to be taking a different approach...

It wasn't until Monday afternoon that Press Secretary Jen Psaki finally acknowledged the threat posed to Supreme Court Justices by out-of-control pro-abotion activists, claiming that "judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety."

This is true, but it took Psaki an entire week to make any semblance of a definitive statement about the White House's position on this urgent matter. In fact, Psaki previously refused to discourage the targeting of Justices' homes when asked, insisting that pro-abortion groups were staging "peaceful protests" instead; she even failed to condemn the leak itself -- an unprecedented breach of trust and rejection of institutional norms that could permanently damage the standing of the court and its ability to function as an apolitical body.


And, of course, Joe Biden, himself, has been virtually silent on the matter, failing to effectively speak out against these riots and reassure the American people that those who seek to vandalize property and perpetrate violence will be held legally accountable for their actions by the Department of Justice.

This is entirely unacceptable behavior from a commander-in-chief, and as political allies like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (rather ironically) incite insurrection by labeling the Supreme Court's pending decision a "call to arms," the American people must demand that Joe Biden clarify where he stands, and whose side he's really on.
 

The rule of law must be upheld and applied equally, and that means calling out radical anti-life rioters and ensuring there are consequences for their violent outbursts and destruction of property across the country.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to condemn these rioters, and direct the U.S. Department of Justice to take action that will hold them accountable for their actions under the law.

Thank you!

Jackson’s judicial philosophy came under criticism from Republican senators during her confirmation hearings. She said she could not define what a woman is because she is “not a biologist.” The judge also could not answer a question about when life begins.

As a judge, Jackson has a record of consistently giving lighter sentences to child porn sex offenders, and when questioned, would not answer when she believes human beings have equal rights, either.

“When does equal protection of the laws attach to a human being?” Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) asked the nominee during her hearing.

“Well Senator, I believe that the Supreme Court — actually, I actually don’t know the answer to that question,” Jackson said. “I’m sorry. I don’t.”
