A pro-life protestor demonstrating in support of Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court was allegedly punched in the face by a pro-abortion activist in front of the Supreme Court Building on Sunday in Washington D.C. 

Video footage captured by Breitbart documented the dueling demonstrations in front of the Supreme Court that took place less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump selected the 48-year-old 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judge to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Abortion rights protesters called their demonstration opposing Barrett’s nomination the “No Confirmation Before Inauguration.” Meanwhile, Students for Life of America held a counterprotest in favor of Barrett. The counterprotest featured members of the group’s “SCOTUS Squad.”

According to Students for Life, a network of pro-life student groups with chapters on college and high school campuses across the country, pro-life demonstrators were vastly outnumbered by pro-abortion protesters by a margin of 95% to 5% on Sunday.

A picture posted on the Students for Life Twitter page showed that some pro-abortion demonstrators were not pleased about the presence of the pro-life group.

About an hour into the video, Autumn Schimmer, the communications and market manager for Students for Life Action, can be seen conversing with a woman as a nearby pro-life protester chanted “Pro-life is human rights!”

At the same time, a pro-abortion protester was yelling “women’s rights are human rights!”
