There are grave concerns that pro-abortion activists will make good on threats to target churches across the nation on Mother’s Day.
The activists plan to disrupt church services in response to a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade.
Activists also plan to hold protests on the front lawns of homes owned by conservative Supreme Court justices.
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) fired off an urgent letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland urging him to take the threats seriously.
The lawmakers said the were “extremely concerned by multiple reports surfacing that left-wing activists intend to protest, and possibly disrupt, church services this weekend,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter obtained by The Todd Starnes Show.
“We believe these rumors should be taken seriously as protests have already begun occurring across the country,” they wrote.
Roy and Lee referred to an attack on a Catholic church in Boulder, Colorado. Click here to read that story.
“Regardless of one’s position on abortion, the free exercise of religion is a core tenet of our Constitution,” they wrote. “We condemn behaviors that infringe upon the freedom to exercise one’s religious beliefs and respectfully ask that you swiftly alert and coordinate resources with state and local law enforcement to ensure that any organized effort across the country is properly addressed and the rights of Americans are protected.”
Be safe and alert, America.
