What We Saw At Protest Outside Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s House

Breaking News

Pro-abortion protesters dressed as characters from “The Handmaid’s Tale” marched outside Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s home in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Falls Church, Virginia, Wednesday night. 

The crowd was much smaller than the groups of protestors who marched to the houses of Justices Brett Kavanaugh, John Roberts, and Samuel Alito on Saturday and Monday, consisting of seven marchers. 

The ongoing protests come on the heels of a statement by the Justice Department announcing increased security for the justices. 

“Attorney General [Merrick] Garland continues to be briefed on security matters related to the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Justices,” Anthony Coley, a Department spokesman, said. “The Attorney General directed the U.S. Marshals Service to help ensure the Justices’ safety by providing additional support to the Marshal of the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Police.”

State police were present during the protest at Barrett’s suburban home, fulfilling a promise by Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, a Republican, to increase security for the justices. 

“We have been coordinating with Fairfax County Police County, Virginia State Police, and federal authorities to ensure that there isn’t violence. Virginia State Police were closely monitoring, fully coordinated with Fairfax County and near the protests,” tweeted Youngkin on Monday, following the protest at Justice Alito’s house.

It did not appear that Barrrett or her family were at the residence during the demonstrations. 

The protests outside Barrett’s home, and the homes of the other justices, are in response to a leaked draft opinion of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, which indicates that the Supreme Court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade

The draft opinion, written by Alito, said that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” and “that Roe and Casey must be overruled.” The final opinion has not yet been released, but is expected to come 

The pro-abortion protests walked around Barrett’s cul-de-sac for about 10 minutes before walking out of her neighborhood.
