An ominous social media post from a pro-abortion group about U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s children has pro-life advocates concerned for their safety.
The pro-abortion group Ruth Sent Us posted a “special message” to Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley, about their daughters Wednesday on Twitter — just hours after authorities arrested an alleged armed assassin near the conservative justice’s home, The Blaze reports.
Though Ruth Sent Us denounced violence this week, it also posted several mocking and ominous messages on Twitter, including one indicating abortion activists know where the Kavanaughs send their daughters to school.
“A special message for Ashley Kavanaugh and your daughters — this billboard was on your school grounds. We feel for you,” the group wrote, including a photo of the school billboard with two pro-abortion posters hung on it. “@LeaderMcConnell and the GOP aren’t worried for your safety. They worry only for the expensive Supreme Court they rigged, and their own power.”
In May, Ruth Sent Us, named after the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, also published the home addresses of Kavanaugh and other conservative justices online publicly in response to a leaked draft ruling showing the high court overturning Roe v. Wade this summer.

Significantly, authorities said the alleged armed assassin whom they arrested early Wednesday near the Kavanaughs’ home told them he found the justice’s address online, and decided to travel cross-country to murder Kavanaugh. Authorities said Nicholas John Roske, 26, of Simi Valley, California, was armed with a gun and knife, and said he was angry that the court may overturn Roe soon. He is charged with attempted murder.
The Federalist editor Mollie Hemingway slammed Ruth Sent Us for its “horrific” intimidation attempts not only against the justices but also their young children.
“Pro-abortion group that posts directions to Kavanaugh’s home — man arrested today said he used online map to find it — also targeting his young daughters’ school,” Hemingway wrote. “This escalation and threat against the children must be stopped. Horrific.”
The same pro-abortion group also mentioned Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s children this week in a call to protest outside her home and a local elementary school. Barrett has seven children, and the youngest is 10.
“If you’re in the DC metro area, join us. Our protests at Barrett’s home moved the needle to this coverage,” the group wrote on Twitter. “Falls Church is a People of Praise stronghold. She sends her seven kids to a People of Praise school that she sat on the Board of Directors for. She attends church DAILY.”
Barrett and Kavanaugh are expected to be among the majority of justices who agree to overturn Roe this summer.
Protests outside judges’ homes are illegal, but the Biden administration has encouraged them anyway. And these protests have continued even after the alleged assassination attempt and, in mid-May, the removal of Justice Samuel Alito, the author of the leaked draft ruling, and his family from their home to a secure location due to violent threats.
The Daily Caller reports abortion activists protested outside Kavanaugh’s home again Wednesday evening, just hours after authorities arrested the alleged assassin.
Meanwhile, other pro-abortion groups also are hinting at violence against the court, pro-life advocates and churches in the days to come. Jane’s Revenge, a group linked to several acts of arson and vandalism in recent weeks, warned of more “military” actions this weekend and a “Night of Rage” once the Supreme Court releases its abortion ruling, according to Secular Pro-Life.
The U.S. Marshals and Department of Justice have increased security for the justices, their staff and families. In mid-May, the U.S. Senate also unanimously passed a bill to increase security measures for the high court, but the U.S. House, which is controlled by pro-abortion Democrats, blocked the bill.
According to Axios, a recent report from the Department of Homeland Security warned that radical abortion activists may burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their law clerks if the court overturns Roe. The report indicates these pro-abortion extremists also plan to target churches and other places of worship.
LifeNews reported last week about the leftist pro-abortion group Shut Down D.C., which plans to blockade the streets around the Supreme Court building June 13 in an attempt to shut it down.
“The leaked draft memo that states the Supreme Court has struck down #RoeVWade is an ATROCITY but It is not yet law & doesn’t have to be, but what they plan to do & will do if WE don’t stop them. Rise up! & RAISE HELL!” the group Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights wrote on Twitter.
Even prominent pro-abortion groups are using words that hint at possible insurrection and violence. On Twitter, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, executive director of Women’s March, said abortion activists will be “ungovernable” until the government legalizes abortion on demand.
At least three pro-life organizations have been the victims of arson in recent weeks, and there have been dozens of acts of vandalism, assaults and threats against pro-lifers and churches.
The Supreme Court is expected to release its final ruling on the Mississippi abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health this summer, potentially later this month.
Since Roe in 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
