Twitter has suspended the account of a pro-abortion group that has used the social media platform to post the addresses of Supreme Court justices and to encourage people to protest outside of their homes.

The conservative-leaning justices last month struck down the court's ruling on Roe v. Wade that for decades made abortion a constitutional right. The protests started in May when a draft of the decision was leaked to the news media, at about the same time the group, Ruth Sent Us, began its posts, according to the Daily Wire.

The group posted a map on its website listing the street names  where Justices Amy Coney Barrett, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch live.

Google removed the map in May, citing a “violation of our personal and confidential information policy.”

Twitter did not respond to a request for comment from The Daily Wire on why it didn't suspend the account until about two months after Google removed the map or what specific tweet was the final straw.

"If you’re in the DC metro area, join us," the group also tweeted. "Our protests at Barrett’s home moved the needle to this coverage." 

Ruth Sent Us also reportedly pushed for protesters to interrupt Catholic masses on Mother’s Day, warning one critic in a May 7 tweet: “Stuff your rosaries and your weaponized prayer. We will remain outraged after this weekend, so keep praying. We’ll be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic Churches have condoned for centuries.”

TikTok, which did not respond to requests for comment, also briefly banned the group in May, the Daily Wire also reports.
