More On: Pro-choice
Over the weekend, people who support abortion rights protested outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett by wearing fake blood-stained clothes and holding baby dolls.
Saturday, the protesters marched to the judge's home in Falls Church, Virginia. One sign had a coat hanger with the words "Not going back" on it.
The young activists, who were part of a group called Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights, held the plastic baby dolls while their hands were tied together with tape.
“This is what Amy’s America looks like,” one protester Ariana, 15, said in a video the group posted. “Children will be forced to give birth to children. Women will be silenced. Women will be invalidated. Women will be told they are less than.
“And that is not OK. We cannot let that happen. … You can’t let this future happen to us. It’s not fair.”
The protest was called the "Women Are Not Incubators Youth Procession" by the group, whose slogans include "forced motherhood = female enslavement."
The group said that it is not trying to "change the minds of fascists who hate women" but is instead "calling on the pro-choice majority" in the US to stop the Supreme Court from overturning the abortion rights case Roe v. Wade.

The Supreme Court could say this week whether or not it will overturn the landmark abortion case.
A Fox News poll found that most Americans think it's wrong to protest outside the homes of Supreme Court justices. Most of the people in the group are Republicans, but 58 percent of Democrats say they don't see anything wrong with the protests.
Overall, 37% of people think the protests are okay.
After hearing that a man with a gun had been arrested at the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the poll was taken.
