Barricades Erected at Supreme Court After Reported Leak of Draft Decision Overturning Roe v. Wade; Hundreds of Protesters Start to Gather at Court

Gateway Pundit – by Kristinn Taylor

Barricades were quickly erected at the Supreme Court Monday night after Politico reported on a leaked draft decision overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion in the United States. An hour after the Politico report was published a small group of protesters with candles had gathered outside the court. (TGP report here.) 

UPDATE at end: The crowd of protesters grew to several hundred around 10 p.m. EDT.

A light police presence was observed.

A small group of peaceful protesters so far.

In October 2018, angry protesters tried to storm the Supreme Court after President Trump appointee Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate as an associate justice.

UPDATE: Protesters grow in numbers to several hundred:

400 hundred at 10:30 p.m.

Uh oh, they’ve broken out the ‘Hey hey, ho ho’ chants.
