Activists lay out plans for Roe v. Wade protests outside Catholic churches on Mother's Day
The plans come after a draft high court draft opinion striking down its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision was leaked Monday

    Activist groups are planning protests defending abortion rights outside Catholic churches on Mother's Day.

The plans target the religion of some Supreme Court justices after a draft high court draft opinion striking down its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which grants federal protections for abortion, was leaked by an unknown source on Monday.

Chief Justice John Roberts on Tuesday confirmed that Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization was genuine – although the draft dates back to February, and it does not represent the current or final opinion of the court.

A group known as "Ruth Sent Us," which has a TikTok account with more than 20,000 followers, initially posted a video of a group of women wearing costumes inspired by Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaids Tale" walking into what appears to be the front of a Catholic Church during Mass.

"For 2,000 years the Catholic Church has been an institution for the enslavement of women," one of the protesters can be heard saying in the video, which calls for protests between May 8 and May 14.

And they can have abortion on demand without apology even after Roe is struck down!  All they need do is move to a state that allows it.

Ha ha, that's funny. Definitely at the top of Garland's priorities. He'll get right on it.

GOP lawmakers demand Garland prepare to protect churches as protesters target services
Rep. Chip Roy and Sen. Mike Lee press for organized protection of churches from Roe v. Wade protesters
By Timothy H.J. Nerozzi | Fox News

Two Republican lawmakers are pressing the Justice Department to take more seriously threats made against churches after a draft opinion from the Supreme Court threatened to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Texas Rep. Chip Roy and Utah Sen. Mike Lee sent a letter Saturday to Attorney General Merrick Garland asking him to marshal resources necessary to protect churches under threat of vandalism and disruptive protest.

"We write to you today extremely concerned by multiple reports surfacing that left-wing activists intend to protest, and possibly disrupt, church services this weekend in direct response to the leaked opinion authored by Justice Alito that would overturn Roe v. Wade," Lee and Roy wrote. ...
