Pro-abortion activists dressed in blood-soaked outfits and brandishing dolls held a protest outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett on Saturday as the court is poised to overturn Roe V. Wade in the coming weeks.
Protesters from the Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights group gathered outside Barrett’s home in Falls Church, Virginia, waving signs calling on the Supreme Court to protect women’s federal abortion rights.
The group also carried dolls and wore white pants with blood stains around the crotch, which they said represented an increase in the number of forced births that would take place if Barrett and her fellow conservative justices strike down Roe v. Wade.
It’s the latest set of demonstrations outside the homes of the justices following a leak last month that showed the conservative majority’s willingness to end the landmark abortion ruling.
Protests have erupted in Washington D.C. and across the country over the expected ruling, with many fearing for the justices’ safety after protesters began demonstrating outside their homes and country clubs.
Last week, protester Nicholas Roske, 26, was arrested and charged with attempted murder after police found him carrying a handgun, ammunition, a crow bar and pepper spray near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.
Prosecutors say Roske traveled from California to the justice’s home in Chevy Chase, Maryland, with the intent of killing Kavanaugh, and then himself, because he was allegedly upset over the expected overturn of Roe V. Wade.
