Members of a leftist group have planned to protest at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home after his support of a Texas law restricting abortion after the unborn child’s heartbeat can be detected.
“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. We warned what would happen,” ShutDownDC said on Facebook.
“And now, in the dead of night, Kavanaugh and four of his colleagues have effectively overturned the right to an abortion,” the post continued.
The group decided to choose Kavanaugh as a person who has played a “key role” in the fight against what the group calls “reproductive justice.”
The group’s goal is also clear.
The #SupremeCourt approving Texas’ #abortionban? That’s gonna be a no from us. Tell Brett Kavanaugh what you think in person, at his house. Monday 9/13, meet at 6:30 PM at Chevy Chase Local Park. https://t.co/ZN2aD7yxFf pic.twitter.com/z3JdOuzx5Q

“Brett Kavanaugh: You’re going to hear from us directly. Last week we came to the Supreme Court. But you weren’t there; the justices continue to work remotely. So we’re coming to your house to
— tell you to keep your oppressive
— ideology out of our bodies
demand you RESIGN immediately.”
The protest is scheduled for Monday evening, Sept. 13.
Reminder, we’re going to Brett Kavanaugh’s house on Monday to tell him to get the fuck out of our bodies https://t.co/bT9nkW80Nn

The Facebook event was created by Shut Down DC. The group claims on its Facebook page it “uses strategic direct action to advance justice and hold officials accountable.”
