Justice Clarence Thomas suggests high court look at gay marriage, contraception cases

Pro-abortion, radical leftists burst into fits of rage when the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision Friday in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case, which resulted in the complete overturning of Roe v. Wade.

However, the bad news for the left might not yet be over, at least according to interesting hints in a concurring opinion authored by Justice Clarence Thomas, in which he stated that it’s time to begin looking at other cases involving gay marriage and contraception, The Hill reported.  

The outlet noted that in the concurring opinion, Justice Thomas “argued that the constitution’s Due Process Clause does not secure a right to an abortion or any other substantive rights, and he urged the court to apply that reasoning to other landmark cases.”

“In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell,” Thomas wrote, making it clear that he, and presumably other conservative justices, have their eyes on those types of cases for the next term.

Liberal Justices Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor were unsurprisingly not supportive of such an idea.

“And no one should be confident that this majority is done with its work,” the three liberal justices wrote.

They added: “The right Roe and Casey recognized does not stand alone. To the contrary, the Court has linked it for decades to other settled freedoms involving bodily integrity, familial relationships, and procreation. Most obviously, the right to terminate a pregnancy arose straight out of the right to purchase and use contraception. In turn, those rights led, more recently, to rights of same-sex intimacy and marriage.”

“They are all part of the same constitutional fabric, protecting autonomous decisionmaking over the most personal of life decisions.”
