SAINT PETERSBURG (FLV) – Photos released by The Florida Standard depict Speakeasy Kava of Saint Petersburg calling for the “tree of liberty” to be “watered by the blood of SCOTUS justices.”
The sign colors the word “blood” in red and the word “SCOTUS” is drawn to depict dripping blood.
Another sign posted on the business include an image of the female reproductive system saying, “Abortion is healthcare,” a line from pro-abortion activists.
The signage comes after landmark abortion cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey were overturned by the United States Supreme Court in a late-June ruling.
The Dobbs v. Jackson majority opinion, penned by Justice Samuel Alito, declared that Roe and Casey “must be overruled.” The 6-3 ruling prompted mass outrage from left-wing activists and the doxxing of some Supreme Court justices. Protestors were seen showing up at the private residences of justices in favor of overturning Roe and Casey, a violation of federal law.
“The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely- the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment,” the majority opinion said.
The ruling has now given states the authority to regulate abortions.
“It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives,” the majority opinion said. “The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion.”
Florida recently approved a new abortion law banning the procedure after 15 weeks in almost all cases.
After the ruling, Gov. Ron DeSantis said the Sunshine State plans to “expand pro-life protections.”
“This is a time where these babies have beating hearts. They can move. They can taste,” DeSantis said. “We are here today to protect life. We are here today to defend those who can’t defend themselves.”
“The prayers of millions have been answered. For nearly fifty years, the U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited virtually any meaningful pro-life protection, but this was not grounded in the text, history or structure of the Constitution,” DeSantis said. “By properly interpreting the Constitution, the Dobbs majority has restored the people’s role in our republic and a sense of hope that every life counts.”
