White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Tuesday encouraged continued protests outside judges’ homes by pro-abortion groups who are demonstrating against the draft that was leaked last week.
“I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date — and we certainly continue to encourage that — outside of judges’ homes. And that’s the President’s position,” Psaki said during her usual press conference.
Psaki’s statements amid threats to judges
The White House spokeswoman’s statements come at a time when the safety of judges is under threat. Last weekend it was reported that Judge Samuel Alito was moved to a safe place with his family.
The Post Millenial said that, according to reports it has received, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is also under threat, as well as Judge Brett Kavanaugh. “On Saturday, pro-abortion activists in Virginia and Maryland assembled at the homes of the Roberts and Kavanaugh,” the media outlet stated.
In addition, progressives have threatened the Court justices. In fact, journalist Simon Gwynn asked on Twitter about the possibility of killing two Supreme Court justices. Later, when Twitter users criticized his message, Gwynn deleted the post.
Since last week, protests have been registered in several cities in favor and against the potential decision. For example, last Thursday, pro-abortion protesters vandalized pregnancy centers in Portland.
