WASHINGTON, D.C., January 27, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – About 70 pro-abortion activists from the group Stop Patriarchy attempted to block the March for Life Friday in front of the Supreme Court, but they were quickly cleared off the road by police, who threatened them with arrest and four days in jail if they did not comply.

This is the second year Stop Patriarchy set up such a blockade. Police arrested eight pro-abortion protesters in 2015, with president Sunera Taylor tweeting at the time: "Anti-abortion woman haters stopped in their tracks today! Several arrested standing up for women."

This year, the clamorous abortion advocates moved to the sidewalk without incident, carrying their banner reading "Abortion on demand and without apology" while police formed a barricade between them and pro-life marchers.

But as Stop Patriarchy's raucous crew continued to yell, jeer, and heckle marchers from the curb, several pro-life youngsters mingled among them, responding to chants of "pro-life your name's a lie, you don't care if women die!" with "we are the pro-life generation!" while the signs of both groups waved together in the air.

A number of Stop Patriarchy protesters wore white pants dramatically stained on the inseams with red dye. Among their many signs, the  group carried large photographs of two women who died at the hands of abortionists, and at one point, the protesters lay on the ground as though dead, while seemingly unfazed pro-lifers carefully picked their way through the prone bodies, then stood and chanted: "We are the pro-life generation! We are the pro-life generation!"

The pro-abortion activists also tried to shout down a group from Silent No More who had gathered in front of the Supreme Court building and who began testifying to the harm they had suffered from abortion.

As at least one abortion advocate began to scream out blasphemous profanities. A few pro-life marchers responded by spontaneously dropping to their knees to pray the rosary.
