Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against Washington D.C.’s Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser for ignoring the group’s request to paint “Because No One Is Above The Law!”, the group’s motto, on a City street after she allowed “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the Police” to be painted on a city block.

“Mayor Bowser gave us the runaround rather than access, as the First Amendment requires, to a DC street to paint our timely message and motto: Because No One is Above the Law!” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Our message is especially relevant today because it applies equally to law enforcement and public officials as well as to protesters, looters, and rioters.”

Judicial Watch first submitted their request to Bowser’s office on June 10, giving her three days to respond. The watchdog group even offered to pay for the painting.

Three weeks later, the Mayor hasn’t responded to their request prompting JW to take legal action. The group alleges in their lawsuit that the D.C. government “denied timely, equal access to Judicial Watch to paint its own expressive message and violated federal civil rights law.”

On Tuesday, the group sent a similar request to paint their motto in New York City. Mayor Bill de Blasio has yet to respond to their inquiry.

Pro-Abortion Protesters Allegedly Take Abortion Pills Outside Supreme Court

Abortion Pills

In order to protest Mississippi’s ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, pro-abortion protestors allegedly took abortion pills – which are used to end pregnancies within the first 10 weeks – outside of the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

As reported by Fox News, “At least four women were seen taking pills as others cheered. The group Shout Your Abortion did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the video and protest.”

“Abortion pills forever,” the protesters repeatedly chanted in a view posted on Twitter by feminist activist Erin Matson Wednesday morning.

“Epic action from @ShoutYrAbortion — people took abortion pills outside the Supreme Court!” Matson captioned the video.

 

On Wednesday, protesters gathered outside the Supreme Court as the Justices prepared to sit for oral arguments in a case that could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade.
The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is over a 2018 law in Mississippi that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The 1973 decision Roe v. Wade and the 1992 decision Planned Parenthood v. Casey forced states to allow women to get an abortion until the point of viability, which is considered to be around 20 to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Mississippi originally said in its petition to the Court that the case does not require them to overturn Roe v. Wade or Planned Parenthood v. Casey. In July, however, Mississippi shifted its position, writing, “Roe and Casey are egregiously wrong” and said the Court should overrule those decisions.
