WASHINGTON D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – A large media presence is amassing outside the United States Supreme Court awaiting the release of opinions as the fate of Roe v. Wade hangs in the balance with the outcome of Dobbs v. Jackson.

LifeSiteNews is on the ground outside the U.S. Supreme Court as the nine justices are set to deliver opinions this morning, while the number of pro-abortion protestors begins to grow and tensions rise with police separating the pro-lifers from the abortion protestors.

Prominent pro-life activist Rev. Patrick Mahoney earlier told LifeSite that the scarcity of pro-abortion protestors was “what we call a nothing burger.”

“The summer of rage, the hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets, just isn’t happening,” said Mahoney.

Pro-life activists, including from the progressive anti-abortion uprising (PAAU), faced off with a handful of pro-abortion protestors chanting pro-life slogans.

The pro-abortion group, Shut Down DC – which has a history of protesting outside the SCOTUS justices’ houses – posted a rally call online for pro-abortion protestors to join then and “ShutDownSCOTUS” in order to protest the potential over-turning of the nearly 5o-year abortion ruling.

However, the numbers of the pro-abortion protesters remain moderately small outside the Supreme Court, in the build up to the release of an unspecified number of opinions at 10 a.m.

One pro-abortion protestor joining ShutDownDC described the pro-lifers present outside SCOTUS “Christo-fascists.” Another performed a twerk-style dance in front of the pro-lifers present.

LifeSite’s Doug Mainwaring wrote that ShutDownDC’s proposed blockade of the Supreme Court had “failed.”

“Pro-aborts have no momentum, no energy,” he tweeted.

“This feels like a pathetic last gasp for Roe v Wade. The energy and momentum is 100% with the pro-life movement and the unborn.”

With Wednesday of this week also billed as an opinion release date, a total of 29 opinions are left to be issued before the end of this term later this month.

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!

READ: Firebombing, threats, intimidation: The vile face of pro-abortion America

It is now over a month since, on May 2, Politico published a leaked draft of a majority opinion by conservative Justice Samuel Alito for Dobbswhich concerns Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban.

The draft states that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” and therefore it is “time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

In response to the unprecedented leak, the Court announced the draft was indeed authentic but “does not represent a final decision by the court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case.”

Should it prove to be the Supreme Court’s final decision, its ramifications will be dramatic. More than 20 states currently have laws on the books that would effectively ban abortion within their borders upon Roe’s fall, from pre-Roe abortion bans that went unenforced to “trigger laws” designed not to take effect until a ruling like today’s. In those states, abortion would become illegal as soon as the ruling is issued.
