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.”

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.”
