Left-wing groups around the country are vowing to essentially conduct a repeat of 2020 if they don’t get their way in a Supreme Court ruling.
After the unprecedented leak of a draft decision that overturned Roe v. Wade and turned the issue back over to states without actually banning the procedure, leftists took to the streets over the weekend in major U.S. cities to protest.
But they are vowing a new “summer of rage” if the final decision, expected in June, upholds the draft.
The Daily Mail reports:
Planned Parenthood, Women’s March and other abortion rights groups organized more than 400 ‘Bans Off Our Bodies’ marches for Saturday, with the largest turnouts expected in New York City, Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Houston.
The demonstrations are in response to the May 2 leak of a draft opinion showing the court’s conservative majority ready to reverse the 1973 landmark decision that established a federal constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy.
The court’s final ruling, which could give states the power to ban abortion, is expected in June. About half of U.S. states could ban or severely restrict abortion soon after a ruling vacating Roe.
But as the left moves to disrupt summer, a new survey found that the vast majority of Americans condemn protests going to the homes of justices, which has already happened.
“The Trafalgar Group released a poll on Tuesday that found 76 percent of respondents said it is unacceptable to publish the home addresses of the five most conservative justices and call for protests at their private homes as a way to criticize the court for its anticipated ruling on Roe v. Wade,” The Tampa Free Press reported. “Only 16 percent said that was acceptable.”
Also, the survey found that two-thirds of Democrats also oppose going to justices’ homes to demonstrate.
Speaking at a conservative conference in Dallas on Friday, Thomas told the crowd, according to Newsweek, “You would never visit Supreme Court justices’ houses when things didn’t go our way.”
“We didn’t throw temper tantrums. It is incumbent on us to always act appropriately and not to repay tit for tat,” he added.
Speaking of how conservatives behave, the court’s current longest-serving justice noted, “You will not see the utter destruction of a single nominee. You will also not see people going to other people’s houses, attacking them at dinner at a restaurant, throwing things on them.”
