A pro-abortion rights protest group that claims to carry on the legacy of former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said it would fund protesters to participate in demonstrations outside the homes of the six Republican-appointed justices in response to the court’s expected ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The group, Ruth Sent Us, published a map containing the home addresses of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, and Samuel Alito on its website on Thursday morning, along with an announcement that it would carry out a peaceful “walk-by” at the homes of the “six extremist justices” on May 11.
“Where the six Christian fundamentalist Justices issue their shadow docket rulings,” the map on the group’s website stated.
“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights,” the group stated on its website. “We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics.”
Ruth Sent Us said it would fund protesters to create artwork to be used in its protests.
“Are you a muralist or chalk artist? Are you a graphic designer who would like to contribute remotely? Large-scale art will be included in the protests against the Supreme Court. Stipends available,” the group’s website stated.
It’s not clear if protesters that don’t contribute artwork will also be eligible to receive stipends from Ruth Sent Us. The group did not return the Washington Examiner’s request for comment.
Police have set up shop at the justices’ homes following Monday’s leak of a draft decision showing the court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to Fox News. Tall security fences have also been erected outside of the Supreme Court building.
Ruth Sent Us also disclosed plans on Twitter to organize protests inside Catholic churches on Sunday to protest the “six extremist Catholics set out to overturn” Roe v. Wade.
Carrie Severino, the president of the conservative Judicial Crisis Network, drew a parallel between the planned protests of Ruth Sent Us to the disruptive tactics deployed by the Women’s March during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings in 2018.
“During the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, a rep for the Women’s March ‘confirmed that her group had coordinated a plan to disrupt the hearings. That included offering lodging to traveling protesters and ‘jail and bail support’ if necessary,'” Severino tweeted.
“The parallels between this planned protest and the disgusting antics we saw from left-wing dark money groups during the Kavanaugh confirmation are striking,” she added.
It’s not clear who is in charge of Ruth Sent Us or how the group is funded. The map displayed on its website contains a link to another activist group, Vigil for Democracy. And a link at the bottom of the group’s website is for an organizing page run by Strike For Choice, yet another activist group.
Strike For Choice boasts endorsements from 11 activist groups, the most prominent being Code Pink, a left-wing activist group that has received funding from major Democratic groups such as the Tides Foundation.
