" protests are illegal, under 18 U.S.C. § 1507 (subsection numbers added),


  1. Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or
  2. with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty,
  3. pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or
  4. in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or
  5. with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence,
  6. shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both." https://reason.com/volokh/2022/05/0...ces-with-the-intent-of-influencing-the-judge/
Not only is this statute applicable to the abortion criminal protestors but a good logical argument could be made that the criminal protestors are obstructing a government proceeding. If we are to have equal justice, they should be jailed with no right to obtain bail.
