Pro-abortion group promises to ‘blockade the streets around the Supreme Court’

On Monday, a pro-abortion group called ShutdownDC made good on its threat to “blockade the streets around the Supreme Court.”

That came in response to a leaked draft opinion suggesting the Supreme Court is about to overturn Roe v. Wade. They aren’t the only leftists taking action, however, as others have embarked on more sinister plans. 

Group pledged to “rise up”

A statement on the organization’s website explains that the blockade is part of an effort “to rise up for the transformative change that our communities need.”

“Right now our political system is in crisis,” the statement continued, adding, “Times of crisis can either be opportunities to break through the inertia and win transformational change or they can be opportunities for the establishment to further entrench the status quo.”

Video footage circulated on social media showing pro-abortion activists chanting loudly as they marched down a public street.

The demonstration comes less than a week after 26-year-old California man Nicholas John Roske was arrested outside of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.

According to Fox News, Roske said he planned to murder Kavanaugh due to the justice’s positions on abortion and the right to bear arms.

When he was taken into custody, law enforcement agents found that he was in position of Glock 17 handgun along with ammunition, zip ties, pepper spray, duct tape, and other items.

Pregnancy care center firebombed

Meanwhile, others have begun attacking pregnancy care centers, with the latest incident occurring at a facility run by First Image in Gresham, Oregon. 

“Our Gresham Pregnancy Resource Center was set on fire this morning at about 3 am,” a statement released on Sunday by First Image read. 

“From initial investigations by Police and Fire authorities, it appears an incendiary device was thrown through a window,” it went on to add. The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) later said in a tweet that its Portland field office would help local authorities to investigate.
