A pro-choice group, known as Ruth Sent Us, has revealed that their TikTok account has been banned from the social media platform. Though there is currently no clarity regarding the exact reason behind its prohibition, it has been said that the far-left abortion activist group has recently shared a post damaging a Catholic church while calling it “an institution for the enslavement of women”.

Announcing its ban on a backup TikTok page called RuthSentU on Saturday, May 14, the group posted a screenshot of the main account that had over ​​20,000 followers, which read, “Your account permanently banned due to multiple violations of our Community Guidelines.” Also, on Twitter, it shared, “We’ve been mass-reported since last week on all social media, suffered death threats, doxxing, and a SWAT attempt. RT and follow us to see more protests daily, and pls battle MAGAs in our comments. #DefendRoe with @prochoiceheart & @riseup4abortion.”

As per reports, Ruth Sent Us has been named after late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In the past few weeks, the group has been in the news for interfering in church services and blocking houses of supreme court judges after a draft opinion leaked to Politico revealed that they might revoke Roe v. Wade. It has been said that out of nine judges of the apex court, six are conservatives — Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, and Clarence Thomas — and they support the ban on abortion protections. However, the opinion of Chief Justice John Roberts, a conservative, on the matter is not clear yet.

A TikTok video, before the Ruth Sent Us’ account was banned, showed Ruth Sent Us activists dressed in red capes, like Margaret Atwood's ‘The Handmaid's Tale’ characters, walking inside a Catholic church during mass and disturbing the religious process. “For 2,000 years the Catholic Church has been an institution for the enslavement of women," a demonstrator was heard saying in the clip while announcing protests between “May 8-15 and beyond!”

Besides, a Twitter post from Ruth Sent Us shared last week read, “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.”

Who runs Ruth Sent Us?

Though the group’s name includes Ruth, the late justice has nothing to do with it. Fox News has reported that the website of the pro-choice group “is registered under a person by the name Sam Spiegel, according to the domain registration website Whois.” It also noted that “Spiegel, whose Twitter handle is @UNSEATpac, was listed as treasurer of the Unseat political action committee in 2018 filings with the Federal Election Commission.”

Earlier, Spiegel had reportedly agreed with Democratic Representative Maxine Waters' demand to harass Donald Trump officials in 2018. Waters had said, “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Supporting her, Spiegel had tweeted, “The real story is the selfishness and cruelty of Trump, his supporters and his cronies. Nazis don’t deserve politeness, and they’re not getting it anymore. Shush, Nazi.” He also wrote, “Lies and cruelty are not political opinions. If you support Trump today, you’re a Nazi, and should be run out of polite society. Also, if you’re a Trump supporter, I call BS on your claim of Democrat best friends,” adding, “When they go low, we go high. When they go Nazi, we refuse service. While children are eating and sleeping in jail, everyone who supports this regime deserves to be ambushed. #NoPeaceForNazis.”
