Handmaid says Coney Barrett, mom of 5 kids, doesn’t get what it’s like ‘to carry a pregnancy to term’

A pro-abortion protester decked out in full “Handmaid Tale” garb, claimed during an interview on Wednesday that it was possible Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett did not know what it was like to carry a pregnancy to term because she was an adoptive mother.

Barrett has five children of her own and two adopted children.

“It’s also possible that the fact that she’s an adoptive mother is influencing her inability to see what it’s like to carry a pregnancy to term,” the protester disparagingly commented in a video interview obtained by Fox News Digital.

The interviewer informed the protester that the assertion was incorrect and that the justice had carried five children to term. The pro-choice advocate responded, not missing a beat, “Not everybody wants to have five kids or four kids or one kid.”

Seven protesters dressed up in outfits inspired by Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” gathered outside of Barrett’s home in Falls Church, Virginia in what appeared to be a blatant attempt to intimidate the justice into changing her potential ruling on the landmark abortion case Roe vs. Wade. The women in the fictional drama are depicted as being systematically raped and forced to give birth against their will. Their costumes have become common among leftist protesters.

“We have no problem with Catholicism,” asserted one protester who was brandishing a sign that read, “Keep your rosaries off my ovaries,” which seems to indicate exactly the opposite of that claim.

“However, in this country, there’s a separation of church and state,” the protester added. “So somebody’s religion, no matter what that might be, cannot dictate how they carry out their job as a public official.”

Justice Amy Coney Barrett is a devout Catholic.

The protesters marched around the cul-de-sac in front of Barrett’s home for about half an hour before going back to their cars.

A number of the justice’s neighbors watched the spectacle. One named Julie is a long-time resident who has lived in the neighborhood for 22 years. She told Fox News that the Barretts were “scared, and they wanted prayers.”

“The whole neighborhood’s been supportive of that,” she commented.

State police were in attendance during the protest at Barrett’s home, as promised by Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-Va.), who vowed to increase security for the justices.

“We have been coordinating with Fairfax County Police County, Virginia State Police, and federal authorities to ensure that there isn’t violence. Virginia State Police were closely monitoring, fully coordinated with Fairfax County and near the protests,” tweeted Youngkin Monday.

The radical group “Ruth Sent Us” has been sending protesters to the homes of the six conservative Supreme Court justices who are poised to strike down Roe vs. Wade including Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas.

The organization doxed the conservative justices and protesters started showing up at their homes causing security concerns. The move is potentially illegal as there is a law on the books that prohibits protesting in front of judges’ homes in an effort to intimidate them.

The Supreme Court justices will meet on Thursday for the first time since the leak of a draft opinion to Politico that would potentially overturn Roe vs. Wade.

The Senate failed to codify abortion rights for a second time on Wednesday in a 49-51 vote. The bill reportedly went too far for some moderate abortion rights supporters.

A group of female members of the House Progressive Caucus marched toward the Senate side of the chamber chanting “my body, my decision” as the vote took place, according to the Daily Mail.

The bill needed 60 votes, including 10 from Republicans, to pass. It didn’t even get a simple majority of the vote as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) voted against it. So did pro-choice Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski from Alaska and Susan Collins from Maine. Murkowski and Collins had submitted their own bill to codify abortion rights, the Reproductive Choice Act, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) refused to even put it up for a vote.
