Abortion rights activists protest outside Justice Alito’s home

A large group of protesters gathered outside the home of conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito on Monday night to protest his leaked draft opinion to overturn the historic Roe v. Wade case and end federal protections for abortion rights Happened.

The demonstration – called “Vigilance for Abortion Rights” – was organized by the activist group Shut Down DC, which said it would take its protest directly to the House of Justice in Northern Virginia “because the Supreme Court had until that point.” Impossible to reach.”

The group marched in the street, some carrying a banner that read, “Repro Freedom for All”, as others chanted “Our bodies, our voices!” Chanted. And “Alito is a coward,” the Fox News video reveals.

Organizers said they plan to light candles at the foot of Alito’s driveway, where speakers are expected to share their stories about abortion and “we know we have rights” before driving away. Let’s take a moment of silence.

The protests prompted the Senate on Monday to pass legislation that ramps up personal protection and other protections for Supreme Court justices and their families with protective detail — as do members of Congress and White House officials. Has been given.

Alito, appointed to the Supreme Court in 2006 by George W. Bush, wrote a majority opinion that rejected the constitutionality of the Roe v. Wade 1973 decision, which had been the law of the land for nearly 50 years, as well as the subsequent 1992 In Planned Parenthood Vs. Casey Decision.

Instead it would delegate decisions on abortion rights to individual states.

At least 26 states in the South and Midwest plan to ban abortions immediately or to reverse the historic decision almost outright.
