Pro-abortion activists interrupted U.S. Supreme Court proceedings Wednesday to protest the court's June decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Conservative Brief reported. The three women involved urged others to "vote for the right to choose."
The three demonstrations came in rapid succession, one after the next. "Our right to choose will not be taken away," one woman shouted shortly after the session began.
"Women vote for the right to choose," she urged. The first woman was promptly hustled out by security, but then another woman took up her cause.
"We will restore our freedom to choose," another female protester piped up soon after. The court was hearing oral arguments on the Bank Secrecy Act, a case that has nothing to do with abortion.
None of the attorneys or justices acknowledged the protesters, and proceedings continued. The three women were later identified as Rolande Baker, Nicole Enfield, and Emily Paterson, NBC News reported.
Patricia McCabe, Supreme Court spokeswoman, said the women were arrested for their outbursts. They have been charged with interfering with the administration of justice and disrupting Supreme Court proceedings, both of which are in violation of federal laws.
Tr0uble in the court began almost immediately after the high court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked in May. A draft of the opinion of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was met with vitriol from the pro-abortion side as a repeal of constitutionally protected rights, though the court's reasoning was sound.
"Roe was egregiously wrong from the start," Justice Samuel Alito said in his majority opinion. "We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled," he said, referring to the Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision that confirmed abortion on demand and piggybacked off of Roe.
"It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives," Alito wrote. "We, therefore, hold the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion," he added.
"Roe and Casey must be overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion must be returned to the people and their elected representatives," Alito wrote. This profound correction to a previous error sent the pro-abortion left into a long and sometimes violent uproar.
Between the time in May when the draft was leaked and the final opinion released on June 24, radical groups like Ruth Sent Us protested at the homes of the justices responsible for the majority opinion, the New York Post reported. A California man who planned to kill Justice Brett Kavanaugh showed up at the judge's home after the draft opinion was leaked.
The media has responded to these attacks with a shrug, even as they breathlessly blame the right for attacks on Democrats. However, this latest protest in the courtroom of the Supreme Court is proof that the radical left is not done with its outbursts -- and perhaps worse.
