After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24, pro-abortion activist groups continued a shouting campaign outside the residences of justices.

In a historically unprecedented leak, someone released the court’s decision several weeks before the verdict. In response, activists published the home locations of the six conservative members of the high court.

Since then, these justices have put up with protesters where they live.

Some neighbors said they hoped activists would end the campaigning after the court’s final decision.

They haven’t yet.

On the evening of June 24, about 30 protesters gathered outside Justice Clarence Thomas’ home.

On June 27, activist group Downright Impolite announced on Twitter that it plans protests outside the home of Justice Samuel Alito.

Shut Down DC reposted the announcement.

Ruth Sent Us reposted the home addresses of the justices, signaling another round of demonstrations there.

Just the Beginning

Some activists have previously said that the protests outside the houses of justices aren’t about encouraging change.

“At the very least I hope he’s annoyed. I hope he’s very inconvenienced,” said Connor, an attendee of a May 15 protest outside the homes of Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts.

So far, the protests outside the homes have ranged between 15 to 150 people.

At a typical one between 15 and 30 demonstrators show up.

For about an hour at a time, they walk down the street, screaming obscenities, shouting the justice’s name, chanting protest slogans, and waving signs.

Pro-abortion activist groups SCOTUS6, Shut Down DC, Whatever It Takes, Ruth Sent Us, and Downright Impolite organize these events for five days a week.

While angry and loud they have been peaceful.

According to local police as long as the demonstrators march in circles outside the home of a judge they aren’t technically “picketing” it.

The action is still a “march,” even if it hovers around a judge’s home and shouts a name.

Safety Fears

Even after the verdict, activists have continued to publicize the locations of the conservative Supreme Court justices’ homes.

A Reddit post revealing the justices’ addresses has more than 27,000 views. Some comments threatened violence.

The company’s content policy reads that users must “respect the privacy of others. Instigating harassment, for example by revealing someone’s personal or confidential information, is not allowed.”

Ruth Sent Us published the neighborhoods of justices on Twitter, receiving 51 retweets.

Twitter’s official policy prohibits doxxing as well.

However, Reddit and Twitter have not yet removed the posts.

The online publicity has already led to a man being arrested near Kavanaugh’s house. The would-be attacker, who had a firearm and ammunition in his suitcase, told authorities that he had found the justice’s address online.

The man “began thinking about how to give his life purpose and decided that he would kill the Supreme Court justice after finding the justice’s Montgomery County address on the internet,” court documents say.

In the past few weeks, violence against pro-life groups has escalated with 35 organizations graffitied, firebombed, or had windows broken, according to website Catholic Vote.

After the verdict on Roe, the pro-abortion extremist group Jane’s Revenge published a communique that threatened murder.

“We will hunt you down and make your lives a living hell. You started this war but we will win it.

“So far it’s just been pregnancy crisis centers, but tomorrow it might be your cars, your homes, or even your lives.

“We support a diversity of tactics and we will not step down in this fight,” the group said in an email to Abolition Media, an anarchist website.
