Peaceful protests have repeatedly – by Democrats and Republicans alike – been called the "cornerstone" of American democracy, even by legal experts. But Harvard Law educated attorney and U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), who one year ago proudly issued a statement declaring "COTTON TAKES ON CANCEL CULTURE," is denouncing peaceful pro-choice Americans who have been protesting outside two U.S. Supreme Court justices' homes to defend the constitutional right to abortion.
