'Handmaid's Tale' Protesters Demonstrate Outside Amy Coney Barrett's Home:
Abortion rights activists dressed as characters from The Handmaid's Tale demonstrated outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett on Wednesday, after a leak revealed the Supreme Court is leaning towards overturning Roe v. Wade.
Photos and videos posted to social media showed seven people clad in red robes and white bonnets quietly walking around Barrett's cul-de-sac in Falls Church, Virginia while holding signs. In one video, a participant can be heard saying: "We're not protesting, this is performance art."
Conservative media outlet The Daily Signal reported the demonstration lasted about 10 minutes.
"The right to your own body—to do what you want with your own body—is the most personal freedom you can have," one activist told The Daily Signal. "It should be self-evident that it's wrong to force women to go through with an unwanted pregnancy."
Speaking to The Daily Signal, a man who identified himself as one of Barrett's neighbors said the protesters should "go home and get a family."
"It's none of their business, why are they here?" the man said.
"They have the right to protest, but not in front of someone's house. They live here, this is where she lives." --->READ MORE HERE

Protester says Amy Coney Barrett, who gave birth five times, doesn’t understand pregnancy:
Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett has given birth five times, but a protester in front of her house said the conservative jurist doesn’t realize what it’s like to undergo a full-term pregnancy.
The unidentified woman spoke with a reporter on Wednesday as she and six others garbed in red cloaks walked back and forth in front of the justice’s home in Falls Church, Virginia, as shown on video posted by Fox News Digital.
“It’s also possible that the fact that she‘s an adoptive mother is influencing her inability to see what it’s like to carry a pregnancy to term,” said the protester, who wore a face mask.
Justice Barrett has seven children, two of whom are adopted.
When told “she’s had five kids by herself,” the woman replied, “Not everybody wants to have five kids, or four kids, or one kid.”
The low-key protest appeared to be part of the Ruth Sent Us “Walk By Wednesday” demonstration urging activists to walk past the homes of the six conservative justices in reaction to last week’s leaked draft opinion showing majority support for overturning Roe v. Wade. --->READ MORE HERE
