Angry Abortion Activists Go To Church

In an attempt to intimidate and threaten people of faith, pro-abortion protestors utilized social media to organize interruptions to spread their anti-life message---On Mother's Day.

A feminist group called "Ruth Sent Us" shared a video yesterday encouraging protestors to "chant" during services in their local church.

"Mother's Day Strike" called for action against Catholic churches.

The attack on churches is formally scheduled for May 8 through May 15.

Be informed, not misled.

Why the interest in going to church?

In light of the leaked Roe v. Wade decision draft, pro-abortion activists threatened to interrupt Catholic masses on Mother’s Day across the nation. 

In an attempt to intimidate and threaten people of faith, pro-abortion protestors utilized social media to organize interruptions to spread their anti-life message. In the past, these extremists have already ruined services in places such as New York City and Virginia.

A feminist group called "Ruth Sent Us" shared a video on Twitter encouraging protesters to chant in their local church on Sunday---the group name is a reference to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Additional organizations are being readied for battle against the Church in the coming days: "Strike for Choice" and "Rise Up 4 Abortions Rights" are two of a number of groups actively raising money preparing to "Rise Up" and "Strike" the church for their pro-life beliefs.

Several months ago, abortion activists barged into a San Francisco church service wearing red cloaks and t-shirts that read "forced motherhood is enslavement." The costumes portray characters from the book and television series "The Handmaid’s Tale," which details the aftermath of the U.S. government being overthrown by so-called religious radicals.

The New York Post says this:

A pro-choice group called Ruth Sent Us, named after late liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is urging followers on Twitter to “rise up against a corrupt and illegitimate” Supreme Court in the wake of Monday’s bombshell leak of a draft opinion that could end nationwide abortion rights.

“Whether you’re a ‘Catholic for Choice,’ ex-Catholic, of other or no faith, recognize that six extremist Catholics set out to overturn Roe,” the group tweeted Tuesday. “Stand at or in a local Catholic Church Sun May 8. #WarOnWomen #MothersDayStrike.”

The tweet also featured a video of activists in “The Handmaid’s Tale” outfits — likening the looming potential abortion ban to Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel where women are treated as property of the state.

“Without this basic right, women can’t be free!” they chanted. “Abortion on demand and without apology!”

The group also challenged others to follow in their footsteps.

The pro-choice group Ruth Sent Us filmed a video of them protesting inside a Catholic church.

“Do you dare to chant in your local churches?” a message in the footage read. “Comment below, and we’ll send you safety tips.”

The group’s website urges people to sign up to “rise up” against the “extremist” Supreme Court and shockingly posted the private home addresses of the six conservative justices.

Another group, Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights, is organizing a “Week of Resistance” beginning on Mother’s Day through May 14 — culminating with protests in New York, Chicago, and Seattle.

Supreme Court Justice Amy Conney Barrett has been labeled, pejoratively, as a "Hand Maid" on the Court by the radical left pro-abortion extremists.

Sacred Heart of Mary Church in Boulder, Colorado was also defaced with a pro-abortion message. 

"My body, my choice," and “abortion saves lives,” are just a few of the obscene messages being spray-painted on the face of religious houses. 

Brian Burch, president of the Catholic Advocacy group "CatholicVote," is calling on Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland to condemn the protests at places of worship, noting that it is against the law.

In a statement, Burch said: "Biden needs to make it clear that targeting Catholic Churches is "indefensible" and "no American should fear for their safety while attending church." 

This is true.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and several other pro-abortion "devout Catholics” have remained silent when it comes to the vile demonstrations.

Apparently, this devout Catholic president is not opposed to this assault on churches.

The angry abortion activists are also going to the homes of the Supreme Court Justices

Virginia State Police (VSP) is monitoring the planned protests at the homes of three Supreme Court justices and will help make sure the justices stay safe, according to a spokeswoman for Gov. Glenn Youngkin.

“The governor is aware and Virginia State Police will monitor the situation,” a spokeswoman says. 

“VSP will assist federal and local law enforcement as needed to ensure the safety of our citizens, including Supreme Court justices who call Virginia home,” she added.

The activist group called "Ruth Sent Us" recently posted a map with the addresses of three justices who live in Virginia.

They encouraged people to peacefully protest outside their homes.

The map also included the addresses of three justices who live in Maryland.

The six justices were all appointed by Republican presidents and five or six of them are poised to strike down Roe v. Wade.

Targeting the Justices is illegal.

According to 18 U.S.C. 1507, which relates to Obstruction of Justice, anyone who has the intent of “interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the tent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer” and pickets or parades in or near a court building or residents “occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness or court officer” will face a fine or imprisonment of one year.

Also raising concerns about the intimidation tactics, The Wall Street Journal editorial board wrote, “Everyone has the right to protest, but assailing the families of judges at home is a blatant attempt at intimidation. If the leaker wanted to mobilize public hostility to the Court, he is succeeding.”


Where would someone get the idea to harass the Court? Well, perhaps from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who stood on the Supreme Court steps in March 2020 as the Justices considered a previous abortion case.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions,” he literally screamed.

He was referring to Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Chief Justice John Roberts publicly rebuked Mr. Schumer, but what did he mean by “the whirlwind”?

The radical Left, including the president, is shrieking that the Supreme Court is about to kill democracy.

The WSJ asks, "So which side of the Roe argument is really anti-democratic?"  

Fundamental rights promised by the Constitution aren’t subject to popular rule, but Justice Alito’s point in his draft opinion is that abortion isn’t one of them, and nobody seriously imagined it might be until Roe in 1973.

The actual threat to democratic norms is the Left’s onslaught on the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. An independent judiciary is the guarantor of the freedoms that actually are in the Constitution. 

The Supreme Court’s job is to say what the law is, not to be a body of philosopher-kings to impose progressive outcomes. Overturning Roe won’t usurp democracy. It will put the abortion debate back where it belongs in a democracy—for voters to decide.
