Targeting pro-life organizations: On Sunday morning, the headquarters of a pro-life organization in Wisconsin was set on fire. The perpetrators used Molotov cocktails and graffitied, “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.”

Targeting the homes of Kavanaugh and Roberts: Protestors went to the homes of Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh and stayed even after police ordered them to disperse. “The time for civility is over, man,” said Lacie Wooten-Holway, 39, a resident who helped organize Saturday’s protest.

Targeting churches: Pro-abortion organizations encouraged activists to disrupt Mother’s Day Catholic church services across the country, citing several Supreme Court justices' Catholic faith. Five of the court’s six conservative justices are Catholic. Some activists gathered at a Manhattan church to intimidate practicing Catholics.

The larger context: Many progressives view the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade as a severe attack on human rights. With progressive extremists at the forefront, there has been a campaign against the Supreme Court justices and organizations that stand in their way.
