Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

With SCOTUS Poised to Strike Down Roe, Pro-Choice Protesters Target Homes of Justices

HeadlineMay 09, 2022

Protests are continuing across the United States to defend reproductive rights following last week’s publication of a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion showing the court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. Over the weekend, demonstrators gathered outside the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh. This comes as a new CNN poll released Friday shows two-thirds of the country opposes overturning Roe v. Wade.

Meanwhile, authorities in Madison, Wisconsin, are investigating a fire at the headquarters of an anti-choice group called Wisconsin Family Action. No one was injured in the blaze. A message was spray-painted on the building’s exterior reading, “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.”
