An armed abortion activist was arrested by police early Wednesday for attempted murder outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The suspect was seen by authorities getting out of a taxi and approaching the justice’s home dressed in black and carrying a suitcase and backpack. The man was stopped by police and found to be carrying in his baggage a Glock 17 pistol, ammunition, pepper spray, tactical knife, hammer, screwdriver, crowbar, zip ties, and duct tape, among other gear.
According to the police, the man, from Simi Valley, California, admitted to authorities that he was there to kill Justice Kavanaugh because of the leaked Supreme Court draft overturning Roe v. Wade and because he believed the justice would also vote to loosen gun restrictions.
Thankfully, authorities intervened before the man could accomplish his intent. He now faces federal attempted murder charges for his attempt on Justice Kavanaugh’s life.
This threat comes amid widespread calls for violence and “revenge” on Pro-Life groups and conservative Supreme Court justices for the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case. Ignoring calls for violence from abortion groups and praising the “peaceful protests” outside conservative justices’ homes and inside churches, the Biden administration has taken no real action to discourage extremist attacks on the Pro-Life movement.
After the Supreme Court draft overturning Roe was leaked in May, the abortion group “Ruth Sent Us” published the private home addresses of all the conservative Supreme Court justices. Since the leak, there have been regular protests outside conservative justices’ homes and outside the Supreme Court building on the National Mall.
Another radical abortion group “Jane’s Revenge” has claimed responsibility for multiple attacks on Pro-Life organizations across the country in which the message “if abortions aren’t safe you aren’t either” has been left by activists. The group has continued to foment unrest and call for “vengeance.”
Authorities have had to erect eight-foot unscalable fencing around the court building. Following Wednesday’s attempt on Justice Kavanaugh’s life congressional Republican leadership has called for increased security for Supreme Court justices and their families.
