The homes of two Supreme Court justices were targeted by protesters over the weekend as activists fulfilled their pledge to take the fight in Roe v. Wade to the Conservative majority of the court.
Dozens of protesters shouted slogans and waved placards on a rainy Saturday night as they marched between the homes of Judge John G. Roberts Jr. and Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
The march was organized by a neighbor, Lacie Wooten Holway, who touted it on Facebook as a “neighborhood candlelight vigil for Roe v Wade and abortion rights against our corrupt theocratic Supreme Court.”
“If you take away our picks, we’re going to revolt,” she told WUSA9.
Pro-choice activists announced plans to protest outside judges’ homes after Monday’s leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade of 1973, which established a constitutional right to abortion.
The Ruth Sent Us protest group posted a notice for a Wednesday march at the homes of the six Conservative judges in Maryland and Virginia, referring to the event as “Passover Wednesday.”

“In the homes of the six extremist judges, three in Virginia and three in Maryland. If you want to participate or lead a peaceful protest, let us know,” read the post, which included a map that was later removed by Google for violating its policies.

Among those who had trouble putting pressure on judges in their homes was Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican.
“This is illegal,” tweeted Ms. Greene. “You cannot harass a judge to influence a decision. That’s what this crowd is doing.”
Nathan Brand, deputy director of communications for the Republican National Committee, tweeted: “The White House has refused to condemn this.”
Montgomery County officers were at the scene to monitor the situation, but no arrests were reported.
