Far-left group ShutDownDC says its planning to target Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home during an upcoming protest. The liberal group is protesting the conservative Justice because he did not block a recent law implemented in Texas that prohibits abortions after six weeks.
Fox News reports:
“Brett Kavanaugh: You’re going to hear from us directly,” reads a Facebook event from ShutDownDC. The group says they’ll use Monday’s event to tell him to “keep your oppressive” ideology “out of our bodies” and demand his resignation.
“Three years ago, hundreds of women, femmes, and allies undertook a month of bold direct action to stop the Senate from confirming accused sexual predator Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” he said.
“We warned what would happen. And now, in the dead of night, Kavanaugh and four of his colleagues have effectively overturned the right to an abortion. (Although we must acknowledge that the right wing had already succeeded in making abortion largely inaccessible for many people without means and people of color living in certain states.)”
“Make no mistake, what’s happening to reproductive justice and abortion rights is far bigger than one person. But Kavanaugh is playing a key role, and so far he’s been protected from any backlash. No more.”
The far-left group is known to target lawmakers’ family homes to hold protests, earlier this year the group also protested outside of Sen. Josh Hawley’s home while his wife and infant daughter were inside.
