Fence Erected Around Supreme Court Building

On Wednesday, a large fence was erected around the U.S. Supreme Court building, days after a leaked draft opinion striking down Roe v. Wade was published.

Workers moved in late Wednesday to put up the 8-feet “tall, non-scalable fencing,” reported Fox 5.

The step-up in security follows protests that have begun after the leaked draft opinion suggested the Supreme Court was ready to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The U.S. Capitol Police confirmed to Fox 5 that the fence was part of multiple efforts to “prepare for any potential demonstrations in the area of the Supreme Court, including adding additional officers in the area”.

Though most protesters have gathered outside of the building, one group is reportedly planning to protest at the homes of the six justices expected to dismiss the decision.

The group called “Ruth Sent Us” has called for the protest next Wednesday at “the homes of the six extremist justices”.

A map was included that pointed out three homes in Virginia and three in Maryland “where the six Christian fundamentalist Justices issue their shadow docket rulings from”.

The same night the fences went up, Justice Samuel Alito, canceled a public appearance.

He was supposed to participate in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals judicial conference beginning Thursday, however he canceled the appearance for reasons that have not been disclosed, reported Reuters.

Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed that the draft opinion was indeed genuine, but noted that it did not represent the final decision of the court.
