In response to the protest, the White House condemned the bullying but said it continued to support “peaceful” actions.

“We said we wanted to see peaceful protests,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Friday. “When it comes to bullying, that’s something we’ve condemned.”

The six conservative justices targeted by ShutDownDC formed the majority that voted to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision in June. Since then, pro-abortion activists have repeatedly demonstrated outside the homes of judges and, in some cases, confronted them in public.
