Dozens of protesters stood outside the Supreme Court Thursday, some in support and others in opposition of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

If confirmed, Barrett would replace late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the bench. Demonstrators lined the streets around the court on Thursday, the last day of questioning from the Senate Judiciary Committee.
