SCOTUS dumps Roe, legalizes abortion bans as pro-choice advocates confront theocrats outside

Friday, the 24th of June was an ugly day at the Supreme Court. While the so-called "Justices" inside overturned Roe v Wade and warned Gay marriage and contraception are next, pro and antichoice crowds duked it out with bullhorns outside. At one point, a swarm of bike cops essentially kettled both sides together although not making arrests. Just before the decision was announced they withdrew in a big hurry.

Amy Coney Barrett gets home demo night before Dobbs decision is expected

On the 23ed of June, all speculation was that the Supreme Court's Dobbs (abortion) decision would be released the next day, as SCOTUS had added a very unusual Friday "opinion day" to their calendar. On the evening before that Friday, protesters once again returned to the home of SCOTUS "Justice" and People of Praise Handmaid Amy Coney Barrett.

On the 23ed of June, a mishmash of right-wing groups including Concerned Women for America(CWA), the Family Research Council (FRC), and other hate groups held an "our bodies, our sports" event supposely representing cisgender female athletes opposing trans women in women's sports. Nobody there looked very athletic. Counterprotester with all possible noisemakers disrupted the event with whistles, drums, bullhorns in siren mode, and more.

Protesters face off outside as SCOTUS releases more decisions, no Dobbs today

On the 23ed of June, the Supreme Court released five more decisions including the long-expected overturning of New York's restrictive concealed carry gun laws. As expected, the highly incendiary Dobbs (abortion) decision was NOT released with more business yet to go. As decisions dropped, pro and antichoice protesters duked it out outside, with bike cops separating most of them
