The US Supreme Court has called for additional security measures after several abortion rights activists made threats to the justices. The Court has been the subject of intense debate and protest since its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which could have significant implications for abortion rights in the United States, LifeNews reports.
After the Dobbs decision, several abortion rights activists spoke out on social media and at public demonstrations, suggesting that they would seek to harm the justices or their families. The Court took these threats seriously and asked the US Marshals Service for additional protection.
This is not the first time that the Court has been the victim of threats and intimidation. In the past, justices have been attacked by both abortion opponents and abortion rights activists, and the Court has had to take steps to protect its members.
These threats are unacceptable and undermine the rule of law.
