WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – A radical leftist activist group is calling for a blockade to shut down the Supreme Court in order to prevent a ruling that could allow states to outlaw abortion.  

The radical group ShutDownDC has publicly called for demonstrators to block the streets around the Supreme Court on Monday, June 13, in the hopes of stopping the Supreme Court from overturning Roe v. Wade. 

“On June 13, one of the Supreme Court’s 2022 decision days, we plan to blockade the streets around the Supreme Court to rise up for the transformative change that our communities need,” the group’s website states.  

In early May, the leaked draft opinion which would overturn Roe v. Wade sparked hope among the pro-life while striking panic and anger in abortion activists.  

If the draft opinion is published, the power to end abortion access will be returned to each individual state, with many having already moved to completely ban abortion.

Circulating reports suggest that the Supreme Court will likely publish this decision sometime in June. Accordingly, abortion activists are planning to protest the decision by blocking the streets, which potentially involves violence as protestors are called to take action which “stretch[es] the bounds of constitutionally protected speech.” 

ShutDownDC further states that the planned protest aims to “take a stand against the anti-woman anti-queer anti-safety anti-equality justices who represent a small minority of this country.” The organization describes itself as a “space where individuals and groups can come together to organize direct action.” 

The Washington Free Beacon reported that one of the demonstration’s organizers claimed that the goal is to “expand the current political crisis by shutting down the Supreme Court.” 

This is the latest in the recent string of threats of violence from abortion activists. Last month, the Department of Homeland Security revealed that “law enforcement agencies are investigating social-media threats to burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their clerks, as well as attacks targeting places of worship.” 

Organizers of the blockade have openly bragged of their targeting of pro-life Supreme Court justices.

“We were the first to hold an action at Brett Kavanaugh’s house, and then recently we held an action at Samuel Alito’s house,” the organizer said. 

Pro-life Supreme Court justices have recently found themselves to be targets of abortion activists, as hordes of protestors gathered around their homes.  

Pro-life organizations and churches across the country have been vandalized, burned, and attacked since the leaked revelation of the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade. There has also been an increase in pro-life individuals being physically attacked by abortion activists.
