(Republican Insider) – Leftists have become enraged over the news that the Supreme Court could overturn Roe v Wade, which made abortion legal on a federal level. Should this happen, the issue of abortion legality would go back to individual states.
Naturally, leftists are losing their minds over the idea of restricted or banned baby murder. They’re doing what they always do. Screaming and screeching and threatening religious organizations such as the Catholic church.
Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares, however, has a warning for these zealous infanticide enthusiasts.
Apparently, by the left’s logic, you’re allowed to believe that unborn babies’ lives are insignificant and that abortion is nothing more than a “woman’s choice” but you’re not allowed to believe that life starts at conception and is sacred.
Unhinged activist group Ruth Sent Us, along with other radical groups, called for Catholic churches to be targeted on Mother’s Day because how dare women actually choose to give birth and love being mothers.
On Saturday there were protests outside of a New York City church and police prepared for more. Last week, a Catholic church in Boulder, Colorado was vandalized and defaced, as reported by KCNC-TV.
Miyares says that these leftist activists are out of line and that Americans have the right to worship and to live their lives according to their beliefs. He warned he will come down hard on anyone who tries to rob Americans of their rights.
“I deeply respect the First Amendment rights of speech and assembly. But no one has the right to interfere with the fundamental and natural right of all Virginians to practice their religion in peace,” he said in a statement.
“Virginia’s long tradition of protecting religious liberty dates back to the founding of our Commonwealth, when Thomas Jefferson penned the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom that is now enshrined in our Commonwealth’s Constitution. As Attorney General, I am charged with protecting this sacred right for all Virginians,” he said.

Miyares pointed out that the law is on the side of those who seek to worship and practice their religions. After all, religious freedom is what America was founded on and the whole reason that separation of church and state exists.
“Federal law makes it a felony to intimidate, interfere with or obstruct any person who is seeking to exercise his or her First Amendment right of religious freedom at a place of religious worship. Similarly, Virginia criminal law prohibits obstructing the free movement of other persons, trespassing on church property or obstructing proper ingress to and egress from a church. My office will be monitoring protest activities directed at houses of worship and will refer alleged criminal violations to the United States Department of Justice or to the appropriate Commonwealth’s Attorney,” he said.
“Furthermore, federal law authorizes states to bring civil suits to protect their citizens’ free exercise of religion. If protest activities directed at houses of worship cross the line to illegal obstruction, intimidation or interference, I will not hesitate to bring suit to protect the religious freedom of the citizens of this Commonwealth.”
On Saturday, protesters attempted to intimidate Supreme Court justices John Roberts, who was not even named as one of the justices supporting the overturning of Roe v Wade, and Brett Kavanaugh, who is listed as a supporter, by marching outside of their private homes.
Justice Kavanaugh's neighbor is organizing the protest outside his home. Teacher Lacie Wooten-Holway declared "We’re about to get doomsday, so I’m not going to be civil to that man at all.” https://t.co/I9NrJizWQP It is the license of the age of rage. https://t.co/eP8YO7aX4M

“The time for civility is over, man,” protest organizer Lacie Wooten-Holway said, “Being polite doesn’t get you anywhere.”
Constitutional expert and legal scholar Jonathan Turley noted in an Op-Ed for The Hill, that after the SCOTUS leak, “a virtual flash-mob formed around the court and its members demanding retributive justice.”
“This included renewed calls for court ‘packing,’ as well as the potential targeting of individual justices at their homes. Like the leaking of the opinion itself, the doxing of justices and their families is being treated as fair game in our age of rage.”
Despite Biden claiming that Americans must unite and come together after usurping the White House, Turley pointed out that the Biden regime has only further stoked the rage instead of attempting to calm it.
“When asked for a response to the leaking of a justice’s draft opinion, White House press secretary Jen Psaki declined to condemn the leaker and said the real issue was the opinion itself. Then she was asked about the potential targeting of justices and their families at their homes, and whether that might be considered extreme. It should have been another easy question; few Americans would approve of such doxing, particularly since some of the justices have young children at home. Yet Psaki declared that ‘I don’t have an official U.S. government position on where people protest,’ adding that ‘peaceful protest is not extreme,’” he wrote.
“In reality, not having an official position on doxing and harassing Supreme Court justices and their families is a policy,” he wrote.
“In this case, the Biden administration and the Justice Department have condemned the court’s leaked draft — but not the threatened protests at justices’ homes, even though those arguably could be treated as a crime.”
It’s truly disgusting to imagine the lengths unhinged radical left Americans are willing to go to “fight” for women’s so-called “right” to kill their unborn babies. The level of anger is truly frightening and that’s exactly what they want. They want the SCOTUS justices to be afraid and unsure of what the consequences might be should they move forward and support overturning Roe v Wade.
The federal government should not be allowing this blatant lawlessness and yet they only encourage it.
