Autumn Schimmer, a pro-life activist, was just punched in the face at the Supreme Court. This will only get worse as the propaganda is ramped up about the confirmation of Judge Barrett. Even though emotions are high between the opposing groups, what began as a peaceful debate on abortion today, ended up being a violent assault by the pro-abortion woman.
The pro-life activist posted on social media after the incident:
I was punched in the face by a pro-abortion protestor. I’m okay. She has been arrested and I am pressing charges. Thank you to the DC Police. This is proof that abortion leads to other forms of violence. https://t.co/SH4Kkt7pFC

Students for Life provided a statement with a link to the Facebokk video that shows how intense it is right now outside the Supreme Court:
A Students for Life Action team member who is part of Students for Life’s “SCOTUS SQUAD” was punched for simply peacefully advocating for the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Police were called and an arrest was made after a woman approached SFLAction Communications and Market Manager Autumn Schimmer, 23, who was speaking on behalf of ACB. Media in the area, including Breitbart at about marker 1:02, have footage of the attack. Schimmer spoke with police and reported that additional threatening behavior took place in the context of a crowd that included about 5 percent pro-life advocates and 95 percent abortion supporters. Before the attack, Schimmer was holding a sign saying, “I can’t believe these ‘feminists’ are protesting a woman.” (See more on SFLA/SFLAction social media.)
After the attack and arrest, Schimmer said: “I was approached by a pro-choice woman who wanted to have a conversation about what feminism means to me. I told her that women are not empowered when they kill their own children, and we need to do better. After that, she was getting more aggressive. I took a step back to return to my group. She approached me and punched me in the face and ripped off my face mask. This is very upsetting. Being attacked by a pro-choicer just shows that the violence of abortion breeds a culture of violence and normalizes it.”
