Abortion Groups Pay Cash for Tips on Justices’ Locations So They Can Harass Them in Public

The left-wing group ShutDownDC has been offering cash rewards for legitimate tips on the location of conservative Supreme Court justices for the sake of public harassment.

Since May, pro-abortion groups have been holding lively protests outside the homes of the justices they gathered would vote to overturn Roe v Wade following a leak of a draft decision indicating as much.

With the court’s official ruling in June overturning the 1973 decision that effectively legalized abortion nationally, the protests have not abated, and since activists have added to their repertoire confronting the justices while they dine or enjoy their free time in public.

“DC Service Industry Workers… If you see Kavanaugh, Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Coney Barrett or Roberts DM us with the details!” ShutDownDC tweeted on July 8.

“We’ll venmo you $50 for a confirmed sighting and $200 if they’re still there 30 mins after your message,” they added.

This comes after Justice Brett Kavanaugh, himself the subject of a thwarted assassination attempt at his family home earlier this month, was harassed at a D.C. restaurant last week by activists affiliated with the group.

The outlet ZeroHedge noted that such a tweet ought to be against Twitter’s terms of service.

“We prohibit behavior that encourages others to harass or target specific individuals or groups with abusive behavior,” the platform’s guidelines read.

“This includes, but is not limited to; calls to target people with abuse or harassment online and behavior that urges offline action such as physical harassment,” it also specifies.

The emphatically pro-abortion Biden administration has been lukewarm in its response to the public intimidation of Supreme Court justices at their homes and elsewhere.

When pressed to state whether the administration approves of activists holding arguably illegal demonstrations outside the justices homes or harassing them outside restaurants, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre demurred from condemning the practice outright.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden himself has made his message to the protesters very clear: “Keep protesting.”
