Abortion zealots have been triggered by the recent “heartbeat” bill in Texas that protects the unborn. They’ll go after anyone who stands in the way of the right to kill babies in the womb — and they’ll go to great lengths to intimidate those who are unwilling to uphold it.
Protesters showed up Monday at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house after the high court ruled 5-4 not to block the pro-life legislation, the Washington Examiner reported. Senators on both sides of the aisles have roundly condemned the effort.
A group called ShutDownDC led more than four dozen protestors to Kavanaugh’s Chevy Chase, Maryland home Monday. They were yelling obscenities in his suburban neighborhood to share their displeasure with his ruling.
Some shouted through megaphones while others taunted police who were protecting the perimeter of his home, according to Fox News. However, it appeared that the justice was not home at the time.
Plenty of police stationed around Kavanaugh’s house. Protestors booed them early on, then this protestor tells them, “Go do your actual job, you’re just fucking standing there.” pic.twitter.com/pA0XYakv1Y

At Tuesdays Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, both Republican and Democratic Senators denounced the protesters. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) called it “another blatant attempt to intimidate the judiciary” as they seek to condemn any person who “disagrees with the radical agenda.”
Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL) called it “absolutely unacceptable to involve any major public figure’s family or their home.” Durbin instead thought protestors should assert there are “proper venues to express yourself.” Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said the people who showed up were trying to “intimidate” the justice’s family.
The Texas law has made it illegal for mothers to abort their babies once fetal cardiac activity can be detected. The U.S. Supreme Court did not rule on the substance of the bill but rather refused to strike it down on procedural grounds, according to The Hill.
The pro-abortion true believers have no scruples about intimidating the justice at his home regardless of the facts of the case, however. Then again, maybe it’s too much to expect human decency from people who believe the right to kill unborn babies is sacrosanct.
