Pro-Life Advocates Interrupt Sotomayor Senate Hearing, Declaring:"Abortion is Murder! Defend Life! Stop the Genocide!"

Washington,DC(LifeNews.com) Pro-life advocates interrupted the Senate hearing this morning on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, who could be confirmed to replace retiring pro-abortion Justice David Souter. The first abortion protester briefly interrupted the proceedings before U.S. Capitol Police escorted him out of the hearing room.

The outburst came form a bearded man in a suit seated in the visitors gallery during the opening comments from pro-abortion Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

As she talked, a man in the room began yelling, "Senator. What about the unborn!"

He called abortion "genocide" and yelled, “What about abortion?” and “Stop the genocide of unborn Latinos!”

Sotomayor did not react much to the protester other than to turn her head towards friends and family, who were seated behind her to witness the proceedings.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, an abortion advocate who is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, warned after the man was taken away that no further displays for or against the nominee would be tolerated from observers.

“There will be no outbursts allowed in the committee either for or against the nominee," he said.

Leahy continued, "I will direct the police to remove anybody who does any kind of an outburst, either for or against the nominee, either for or against any member of this committee.”

Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the committee’s top Republican and a pro-life advocate, concurred, “Thank you, Mr. Chairman, for you firm words, and I support you 100%.”

Capitol Police later identified the man as Robert James, from Virginia, and he was charged with unlawful conduct and disruption of Congress.

An hour later after the first interruption, a second protester, a younger man with his hair in a ponytail, jumped out of his seat shouting, "Abortion is murder, abortion is murder, abortion is murder."

"Abortion is murder. Defend life," the man shouter, interrupting a statement by pro-abortion Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois.

The protester added a few words in Spanish before police officers escorted him from the room.

Earlier, a handful of protesters carried “Stop Sotomayor” placards outside the Senate office building where Sotomayor’s hearings are taking place.

Two pro-life advocates dressed as the “Blues Brothers” borrowed a line from the classic comedy film for their sign: “We're on a mission from God.”
