Three women were arrested Wednesday after disrupting Supreme Court arguments while lawyers were arguing a banking case.
The women stood up and started screaming at and heckling the Justices in protest of the Dobbs decision that nullified the Roe v. Wade decision.
A few seconds of the heckling was captured on the court’s audio feed of the proceedings.

NBC/AP reported on the protesters:
…Court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe said three women — Emily Paterson, Rolande Baker and Nicole Enfield — were arrested and have been charged with violating two federal laws related to disrupting Supreme Court proceedings and interfering with the administration of justice.
An unnamed group that said it was behind the protest issued a statement saying the women were “denouncing the Dobbs decision and calling on the women of America to vote to restore abortion rights nationwide.”
Kai Newkirk, who said he was one of the organizers, pleaded guilty in 2014 to disrupting a Supreme Court argument that year.
The abortion group released this about the women insurrectionists.
This was the first protest inside the Supreme Court shutting down official proceedings in seven years.
So will these women be sent to the DC Gulag?
Will they be treated like dogs and put in solitary for “disrupting an official proceeding?”
Will they be refused visitors for two years and rot in jail without trial?
Will they be beaten by guards and held in isolation?
Will Congress hold a special committee to investigate their insurrection?
The way these women are treated will tell you EVERYTHING you need to know about the lawlessness of our current justice system.
