Democrats celebrated another victory at the Supreme Court.
But it was not all fun and game for the Left.
That’s because Clarence Thomas called out this lie that Democrats have told everyone for decades.
In June Medical Services v. Russo, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s four liberal justices in striking down a Louisiana law requiring “doctors” who perform abortions to have hospital admiring privileges.
In his dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas went ever further than wanting to uphold this pro-Life legislation.
Thomas made it clear he wanted to strike down Roe v. Wade entirely claiming that the so-called “right to an abortion” was nothing more than a “legal fiction” that the Supreme Court created in 1973.
“This Court created the right to abortion based on an amorphous, unwritten right to privacy, which it grounded in the ‘legal fiction’ of substantive due process,” Thomas wrote. “As the origins of this jurisprudence readily demonstrate, the putative right to abortion is a creation that should be undone.”
Thomas blasted the idea that the 14th Amendment’s right to due process guaranteed access to abortion.
“In 1868, when the Fourteenth Amendment was ratified, a majority of the States and numerous Territories had laws on the books that limited (and in many cases nearly prohibited) abortion. It would no doubt shock the public at that time to learn that one of the new constitutional Amendments contained hidden within the interstices of its text a right to abortion. The fact that it took this Court over a century to find that right all but proves that it was more than hidden – it simply was not (and is not) there,” Thomas argued.
Democrats have spent nearly 50 years telling Americans that Roe is “settled law” and that the right to abortion is guaranteed in the Constitution.
Every Republican Supreme Court nominee tries to dance around this at their confirmation hearings.
But Justice Thomas is once and for all calling out this lie and demanding the court’s conservatives take action to correct this historical and legal injustice.
