Clarence Thomas Says Supreme Court Should Overturn Cases Guaranteeing Birth Control and Marriage Equality
When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, one justice, Clarence Thomas, wasn’t content with simply stripping bodily autonomy from millions of Americans he wanted more. Specifically, Thomas now wants the court to overturn the cases that legalized marriage equality, same-sex intimacy, and the right to use birth control.
Thomas called the rulings in all these cases “demonstrably erroneous,” citing himself:
Thomas is now pursuing another goal and he wants the court to overturn the cases that legalize birth control (Griswold v. Connecticut 1965), same-sex intimacy (Lawrence v. Texas 2003), and marriage equality (Obergefell v. Hodges 2015)
Thomas has been calling for the court to overturn Roe for years and today he achieved that goal which means that these other dreams of his could also become the inevitable future.
