Earlier this week, POLITICO published a draft decision from February written by Justice Samuel Alito that overturns Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 high court decision that [wrongly] legalized abortion in all 50 states.
According to the decision — which again, is just a draft and is not official — the Supreme Court did not ban abortion but rather would return the issue to states for their voters and lawmakers to decide, like it was prior to 1973. That’s a little thing we like to call “federalism.”
But left-wing activists who pine for abortion on demand are not happy with American citizens having a say in this.
So they are planning to ruin Mother’s Day for American families as they throw a temper tantrum — over a Supreme Court decision that isn’t even official yet.
Fox News reports:
Pro-abortion activists are targeting Catholic churches for protests on Mother’s Day, with some citing the Roman Catholic faith of multiple justices who reportedly at one point supported the leaked draft opinion striking down Roe v. Wade.
The protests follow days of organizing in front of the Supreme Court building following the leak Monday night – protests that led the Washington, D.C., police to erect a fence ostensibly to protect the building and justices within. Fox News has also learned that there has been a strong police presence at the justices’ homes following the leak.
“Whether you’re a ‘Catholic for Choice’, ex-Catholic, of other or no faith, recognize that six extremist Catholics set out to overturn Roe,” the pro-abortion organizing group Ruth Sent Us posted on Twitter, with a video of activists appearing to disrupt a church service. “Stand at or in a local Catholic Church Sun May 8.”

Meanwhile, the organization Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights has organized a “week of action” starting on May 8, Mother’s Day, with “Actions Outside of Churches” (these groups sure get formed quickly — almost as if they were pre-planned).
“This action is called for by a collective of spanish [sic] speaking women’s rights groups + activists across the country, including from Bride’s March, Dominican Women’s Development Center, Ni Una Menus, and Las 17,” according to the event schedule. “Several cities will be hosting protests outside of prominent churches in their towns, these can look like a group of people holding signs wearing Handmaids Tale outfits, passing out flyers outside to church goers or doing a die-in.”
For the record, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was certainly a supporter of the First Amendment but she would not have looked so favorably on being hassled by professional agitators either at her home or at church, we’re pretty certain.
Meanwhile still, leftist thugs sprayed graffiti on a church in Boulder, Colo., on Wednesday, paining “bans off our bodies” and “my body my choice” on the building and front door (where were there when the government was trying to force everyone to get a COVID vaccine?).
“Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed Tuesday that Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was genuine – although the draft dates back to February, and it does not represent the current or final opinion of the court,” Fox News noted further.
Brian Burch, head of Catholic Vote, an advocacy group, ripped the planned protests at churches and called on President Biden to condemn what he called “domestic terrorist threats” after Biden has been blasted for claiming to be Catholic while still supporting abortion.
“In the wake of the shameless leak of a draft opinion of the Supreme Court, pro-abortion groups are now threatening to disrupt Catholic churches and to protest outside the homes of Supreme Court justices this Sunday,” Burch noted in a statement this week.
“President Biden must immediately and forcibly condemn these domestic terrorist threats,” Burch declared. “Anti-Catholic zealots are plotting to intimidate and harass Catholics across the country, along with justices and their families. This country was built on freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The President of the United States must stand up for both.”
“These threats follow a record number of attacks on Catholic churches, shrines, and symbols over the past two years,” the Catholic Vote president added, citing the Boulder vandalism.
