WASHINGTON (LifeSiteNews) — Radical pro-abortion protestors grandstanded in front of the Supreme Court building Wednesday, apparently swallowing abortion pills in protest of the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade that may result from the Court’s ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health.

Fox News reported that “[a]t least four women were seen taking pills as others cheered.”

Footage posted on Twitter showed the protestors repeatedly chanting “abortion pills forever.”

The pro-abortion protestors were countered by thousands of pro-life advocates, who gathered outside the Supreme Court building Wednesday morning to promote the overturning of Roe v. Wade as the Court hears oral arguments in a case which has the potential to reverse the 1973 precedent which established abortion as a “constitutional right” in the United States.

Pro-lifers chanted slogans including “We are the pro-life generation and we will abolish abortion” and “Hey hey, ho ho, Roe v. Wade has got to go.”

Oral arguments began today in the crucial Dobbs v. Jackson case, which concerns Mississippi’s HB 1510 law banning abortions from being committed past 15 weeks for any reason other than physical medical emergencies or severe fetal abnormalities.

After its enactment in 2019, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals deemed the law unconstitutional because of an “unbroken line dating to Roe v. Wade.”

Mississippi Solicitor General Scott Grant Stewart is leading the defense of Mississippi’s life-saving bill, which could see the “right to abortion” overturned by the highest court in the land.

Stewart, a former clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas and a former official within the Trump administration’s Justice Department official, presented his oral argument to the Court today. He asserted that the “constitutional right” to abortion determined in judicial precedent is “egregiously wrong,” with “no basis in text, structure, history, or tradition.”

Meanwhile, the lead counsel for upholding Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 case with affirmed Roe’s finding of a “constitutional right” to abortion is Julie Rikelman, the Litigation Director for the radically pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights.

Joining Rikelman on the docket is Elizabeth Prelogar, who made her debut as U.S. Solicitor General by arguing against Texas’ right to enact its life-saving Heartbeat Act.

Previously, Prelogar worked as Assistant Special Counsel to Robert Mueller in the specious investigation of then-President Donald Trump for alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 election, a baseless allegation which has since been debunked.
