A pro-abortion rights group that encouraged far-left activists to protest outside the homes of several U.S. Supreme Court justices has been suspended on Twitter.
The group, Ruth Sent Us, published the home addresses of the six Republican-appointed Supreme court justices in May after a leaked draft majority opinion indicated the court would soon overturn its landmark Roe v. Wade abortion decision.
“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights,” the group’s website declared at the time. “We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics.”
Since then, leftist groups have conducted numerous protests targeting the homes of Justices John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
Ruth Sent Us has organized and encouraged the protests, posting the daily schedules of justices and even the addresses of schools attended by Barrett’s and Kavanaugh’s children.
“If you’re in the DC metro area, join us. Our protests at Barrett’s home moved the needle to this coverage,” Ruth Sent Us said in a June tweet that has since been deleted.
“Falls Church is a People of Praise stronghold. She sends her seven kids to a People of Praise school that she sat on the Board of Directors for. She attends church DAILY,” the tweet said.
The group’s activities appeared to clearly violate Twitter rules against posting “private information” on its platform.
“You may not publish or post other people’s private information (such as home phone number and address) without their express authorization and permission. We also prohibit threatening to expose private information or incentivizing others to do so,” the rules state.
On Thursday, the account owned by Ruth Sent Us was finally suspended.
Ruth Sent Us had also been temporarily banned on TikTok in May but has since had its account reinstated, Fox News reports.
Leftist outrage over the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which returned the abortion issue to the states, has spawned violent threats against the court’s justices and pro-life groups nationwide.
A terrorist group called Jane’s Revenge has claimed credit for crimes of firebombing, vandalism, and arson targeting crisis pregnancy centers and a congressional office.
In June, a man was indicted after he went to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home with the intention to kill him for voting to overturn Roe.
Conservatives have criticized Twitter for inconsistent enforcement of its policies against speech that purportedly incites violence. Former President Donald Trump was permanently banned from the platform for claiming that the 2020 presidential election was illegitimate, which Twitter said posed a risk of “further incitement of violence” after the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
