In a recent press conference, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer expressed his support for the pro-abortion protests that are occurring outside of the homes of Supreme Court justices.

"Are you comfortable with protests that we saw outside the homes of Supreme Court justices over the weekend?" one reporter asked Schumer.

"If protests are peaceful, yes," Schumer responded.

"My house is — there’s protests there three, four times a week outside my house," he continued. "That’s the American way, to peacefully protest is okay."

Schumer then looks at his phone, saying that his wife was calling, and joking: "Maybe there’s a protest outside."

The response comes just days after the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh saw crowds of protestors gathering outside on Saturday.

On Monday, protestors gathered around the home of Justice Samuel Alito, who wrote the leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court indicating that a majority of the justices would vote to overturn Roe v Wade.

On Tuesday evening, protestors gathered around fellow Democrat House member Nancy Pelosi’s home, demanding that she "investigate the corrupt justices" and "save abortion."

In Virginia, where Alito lives as well as two other conservative justices being targeted by pro-abortion protestors, it is illegal to protest outside someone's private residence.

In a Tuesday press conference, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki encouraged those protesting outside these homes to continue with their efforts.

"So I know that there's an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges' homes and that's the President's position," Psaki said.
