Abortion extremists threaten violence as Supreme Court decision nears

Abortion extremists are threatening violence against the Supreme Court and beyond as a major pro-life decision may soon be handed down.

The Department of Homeland Security shared a memo on May 13 revealing that government officials are investigating threats to justices and pro-life clinics.

The threat is real

The threats are often real, as has already been seen in attacks on pro-life clinics after the recent leak of a Supreme Court opinion related to the pending case.

The DHS memo obtained by Axios said the “U.S. government is bracing for a potential surge in political violence once the Supreme Court hands down the ruling that’s expected to overturn Roe v. Wade….Law enforcement agencies are investigating social-media threats to burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their clerks, as well as attacks targeting places of worship and abortion clinics.”

The leaked opinion

Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked opinion wrote that “Roe and Casey must be overruled.

The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito added. “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.”

Since the leak, multiple pro-life clinics have been vandalized. In addition, the homes of Supreme Court justices have been visited by protesters, while large protests have taken place in major cities.

The DHS is warning against violence following the decision, but it was silent regarding the real problem, that violence is expected from those who advocate on behalf of abortion.
