Pro-abortion protestors gathered outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday — the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

The protest was reportedly organized by the left-wing “anti-fascist” group Our Rights DC.

A video posted on Twitter by Daily Signal reporter Mary Margaret Olohan features “far left protestors with @OurRightsDC” marching outside the justice’s home. Protestors can be seen carrying signs that read “our rights are not up for debate,” “abortion saves lives,” and “abortion is healthcare.”

Protestors chanted slogans such as “cut his time short, a rapist should not rule the court,” and “no privacy for us, no peace for you.”

Law enforcement officers can be seen in the video standing guard over Kavanaugh’s house.

Under federal law, protesting “in or near” buildings that house judges, jurors, witnesses, or court officers with the intent to influence them is expressly prohibited.

Pro-abortion protestors have demonstrated in front of Kavanaugh’s home in the past, most notably in June last year, after a leaked draft of the Supreme Court opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson indicated that Roe v. Wade would likely be overturned.

An apparent assassination attempt on Kavanaugh’s life was thwarted following the leak. Nicholas John Roske, 26, reportedly traveled from California to Kavanaugh’s neighborhood in Maryland, arriving early in the morning on June 8.

Roske was dropped off at Kavanaugh’s house by a taxi just after 1 a.m., dressed in all black and armed with a pistol, a knife, and pepper spray. He was taken into custody by Montgomery County law enforcement and allegedly told officers he planned to kill the justice in an attempt to “give his life a purpose.”

His trial is scheduled to begin on August 23.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24, 20222, effectively voiding the Court’s recognition of a constitutional right to abortion. The Dobbs v. Jackson decision gave states the authority to determine their own abortion laws, eliminating the federal restrictions imposed by Roe v. Wade.
