Help pro-life heroes expose abortion in D.C.: LifeFunder

WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-abortion protesters angered that the U.S. Supreme Court might reverse the federal “right to abortion” are making plans to blockade the Supreme Court building next week, according to a report by The Epoch Times.

Roughly 60 activists from multiple pro-abortion groups reportedly joined an online meeting organized by the anti-establishment group Shut Down D.C. on June 7, where they worked to create a plan to block justices from entering the Supreme Court building on Monday, June 13.

Monday is marked as an “opinion issuance” day on the Supreme Court calendar.

The Court is expected to hand down its official opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which concerns Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, any day.

A decision favorable to Mississippi in Dobbs could mean overturning both Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that established a “constitutional right to abortion” throughout the United States, and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), which upheld Roe. Such a ruling would allow individual states to make their own laws regarding whether to allow, restrict, or ban abortion.

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!

In a bid to pressure the Court not to overturn Roe, activists participating in the June 7 online meeting reportedly hashed out plans to block vehicle entrances to the Court building.

Activists said they “expect to be arrested for their actions, but will break the law anyway,” The Epoch Times reported.

Participants were advised they should anticipate being arrested, and fill out a “jail support form.”

“By blocking [traffic], we are breaking a law,” said an activist with SCOTUS6. “As far as civil disobedience goes, the intention is to be disruptive and force change,” the protester added. “If you want to talk more about the legal aspect of it, I suggest we talk outside of this meeting.”

Ideas reportedly floated during the Tuesday meeting included using baby strollers or linking arms to prevent vehicles from reaching the building.

However, one participant shot down the stroller suggestion out of concern the imagery could be “confusing.”

“I just agree that messaging might be confusing and ammunition for pro-life — I mean, anti-abortion people,” the individual reportedly said.

In addition to the June 7 meeting, activists are also reportedly planning a June 12 workshop to help participants “get good at blockading things with a couple of the best people at blockading things in North America.”

Moves to pressure the Court into refraining from overturning Roe v. Wade have amped up in recent weeks after the unprecedented leak of a draft majority opinion in Dobbs that suggested the Court was likely to reverse the 49-year abortion precedent.

Pro-abortion advocates have responded to the leaked draft opinion by unsuccessfully attempting to codify abortion in federal law up to the moment of birth, engaging in protests outside the homes of pro-life Supreme Court justices, and even vandalizing pro-life centers and Catholic churches.

FULL LIST: Pro-abortion vandalism, church storming over possibility Roe v. Wade will fall

Amid increased tension, those on both sides of the abortion debate have been keeping a watchful eye on the Court’s decisions after the leaked draft.

Many expect at least a 5-4 majority will reverse Roe v. Wade, since the language of the leaked draft indicates the Court views the precedent establishing a “constitutional right to abortion” as having been “egregiously wrong from the start.”

The draft opinion asserted it is therefore “time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

The Supreme Court has confirmed the authenticity of the leaked draft, but said it is not the Court’s “final position.”

The Epoch Times noted that while the Supreme Court typically ends its term on July 1, it may run longer into the summer this year due to “an unusually high number of cases.”

Plans to blockade the Supreme Court come just ahead of the launch of the January 6 Committee’s six “prime-time” hearings in which they will reportedly disclose “previously unseen material” of the Capitol riot in 2021. Democrats have focused heavily on the January 6 riot, which they have characterized as as an “insurrection” and “attack on democracy.”

It remains to be seen whether prominent Democrat lawmakers will similarly condemn left-wing moves to prevent the Supreme Court from carrying out its responsibilities by ruling on the Dobbs case.
