Group Protesting Roe Ruling Offers Money for Justice Sightings

A social justice advocacy group in Washington D.C., is looking to track down U.S. Supreme Court Justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, Axios reports. The group, ShutDownDC, is offering up to $250 to service workers who send sightings of the justices who voted to overturn Roe. This includes Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. A few days ago, Kavanaugh left a D.C. restaurant after protesters showed up outside.


The group said it would send $50 for confirmed sightings and $200 if the justice is still at the location after 30 minutes. According to Twitter, this activity is not in violation of their safety policies. Before the Supreme Court overturned Roe, the federal government warned that the ruling could cause a surge of violent behavior. Pro-choice groups Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Liberate Abortion Campaign condemned any threats of violence related to the overturn.
