Leftist activist groups are organizing protests outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices after an opinion was leaked that could reverse the Roe v. Wade ruling.

One of the groups, called Wall Of Moms, is issuing public invitations on social media to protest outside the home of Justice Samuel Alito in Alexandria, Virginia.

A “betrayal” of the Supreme Court

According to a Fox News report, the Ruth Sent Us group has posted the purported personal addresses of Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch.

“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights. We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics,” reads the website.

The report indicates that the judges’ homes have been bolstered with police presence since the document’s leak.

Ruth Sent Us has sent groups of protesters to storm Catholic churches as part of the protest against the justices’ opinion, under the excuse that those who approve of overturning Roe v. Wade are “Christian nationalists.”

The Washington D.C. Police Department erected security barriers around the Supreme Court premises, anticipating any kind of escalation in the face of possible protests that these groups encourage during the weekend.

In a statement made public on the Supreme Court’s website, Justice John G. Roberts Jr. referred to the leak as a “betrayal of the confidences of the Court” whose purpose is to “undermine the integrity” of the body, and made clear that efforts to destabilize its operations will not succeed.

“We at the Court are blessed to have a workforce – permanent employees and law clerks alike – intensely loyal to the institution and dedicated to the rule of law. Court employees have an exemplary and important tradition of respecting the confidentiality of the judicial process and upholding the trust of the Court,” read Roberts’ statement. “This was a singular and egregious breach of that trust that is an affront to the Court and the community of public servants who work here.”

For his part, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said the “stunning breach” involved in the leak is an “attack on the independence of the Supreme Court” that was orchestrated by the “radical left” in order to “intimidate the justices.”
