Only hours after a man was arrested for a failed assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh did a group of pro-abortion protesters show up the doorstep of his Maryland home.
The suspect, 26-year-old Nicholas John Roske, was arrested in the early morning hours of the day near the home of Justice Kavanaugh after contacting police notifying them of his suicidal tendencies and wish to murder the Supreme Court Justice.
When he was arrested, Roske had on him a gun, knife, and zip ties, that he allegedly told law enforcement he had planned taking a taxi to the home to use in order to break in, kill Kavanaugh and himself.
Roske consented to remaining in custody during the court hearing after his arrest and explained how he was upset about the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade as well as the recent tragic Uvalde school shooting.
Soon after the suspect’s arrest, a group called Ruth Sent Us mocked the situation on social media; this is the same group that leaked the home addresses of the Supreme Court Justices and called for people to protest outside their homes after the leaked draft opinion.
Since the leak, there have been multiple occasions of protesters standing outside Justice Kavanaugh’s home.

Of course, the justices can change their minds, until the opinion is officially signed. Meanwhile, Roe v. Wade still remains in place.
The protesters could be heard chanting, “Keep your rosaries, off my ovaries.”
Under 18 U.S.C. § 1507, “pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer” are prohibited when done with the intent “of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice.”
The full statute says, “Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”
If Roe is overturned, abortion law will be returned to each of the states to decide.
