Washington, May 13 (RHC)-- About 150 protesters marched to the Washington, D.C.-area home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, after a leaked draft opinion showed Alito and the court’s conservative majority are poised to strike down Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationwide.
The protest followed weekend demonstrations outside the homes of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts.
In related news, in the U.S. state of Texas, Republican lawmakers say they’re preparing to focus on preventing women from leaving the state to seek abortions elsewhere, if the Supreme Court strikes down Roe v. Wade.
Republican state Representative Briscoe Cain said: “We’ll continue to do our best to make abortion not just outlawed, but unthinkable.”
On Capitol Hill, Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren is calling on her colleagues to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which aims to codify Roe v. Wade.
