The historic ruling Dobbs v. Jackson that overturned Roe v. Wade has pushed the left over the edge. Wait until they find out what’s next.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said other issues like same-sex marriage and contraception could be on the chopping block after a major precedent was reversed in the recent ruling, Fox News reported. He wrote this in the concurring opinion released Friday.
“In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell,” Thomas wrote. He was referencing key cases that have in some way hinged on the precedent set by Roe.
The cases each utilized the supposed right to privacy judges ‘found’ in the U.S. Constitution. The 1965 Griswold v. Connecticut decision permitted the use of contraception because it fell under the right to privacy for married couples.
Both the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision and the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges advanced the homosexual agenda under the auspices of this right to privacy. While Lawrence was regarding the legality of homosexual sex between consenting adults, Obergefell redefined marriage nationwide based on a gay couple’s right to privacy.
“Because any substantive due process decision is “demonstrably erroneous,” […] we have a duty to ‘correct the error’ established in those precedents,” Thomas noted. The justice also believes that recognizing one faulty ruling in Roe requires a reexamination of other precedents.
“After overruling these demonstrably erroneous decisions, the question would remain whether other constitutional provisions guarantee the myriad rights that our substantive due process cases have generated,” Thomas wrote. This is exactly what leftists are afraid of but what is clearly necessary.
The decision to overturn the bad precedent and immorality of Roe v. Wade was the best thing to come out of the high court in decades. Not only has Thomas ruled like a Constitutional originalist, but he’s also living out his Catholic faith while serving in government — and that’s refreshing.
