Since Wednesday, there have been demonstrations for and against the leaked Supreme Court draft that would leave it up to each state to make a decision regarding abortion.
This Thursday it was known that a group of protesters attacked pregnancy centers in Portland and Oregon. The information was published by pro-life activist Lila Rose, who stressed that, in her opinion, they are Antifa members.
Pro-abortion activists are also calling for demonstrations at churches. Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights, which posted a video showing them disrupting a Mass, has called on its Twitter followers to demonstrate on Mother’s Day against Catholics. “Whether you’re a ‘Catholic for Choice,’ ex-catholic, of other or no faith, recognize that six extremist Catholics set out to overthrow Roe,” the call reads.
Pro-abortion group protests
This is not the first activity carried out by similar organizations. Fox News reports that “Pro-abortion vandals targeted a church in Boulder, Colorado, Wednesday, spray-painting ‘bans off our bodies’ and ‘my body my choice’ on the building.”
This Friday it was also known that a metal fence of more than 2 meters high was installed by the police around the Supreme Court, after the protests that have been going on for days in front of the building.
Police officers told EFE news agency that they do not expect the fence to have any effect in deterring further demonstrations. One officer confirmed that the group of people stationed at the gates has remained more or less the same since Wednesday, although more people tend to come in the evenings.
