Capitol Hill Demonstrators Protest Final Day of Amy Coney Barrett Hearings

Protesters took to the streets of Washington, DC, on Thursday, October 15, for the fourth and final day of confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

The Washington Post said Senate Republicans think Barrett will “forge a new and prominent path as a conservative, religious woman who opposes abortion.”

Barrett’s nomination, following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, sparked controversy due to the proximity of the presidential election on November 3.
