U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, in his concurring opinion on the overturning of Roe v. Wade, said the court has no intention of stopping there.
MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting warned the Supreme Court’s right-wing majority’s agenda “does not end at abortion.”
Justice Thomas said previous rulings involving cases centering on marriage equality and the right to obtain contraception, should be revisited.
He said the court is “out of touch with the American people.”
He also wrote, in future, the panel should reconsider “all of the court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.” OBERG AFELL
The 1965 Griswold v. Connecticut ruling affirmed the government cannot interfere in Americans obtaining contraceptives.
Lawrence v. Texas in 2003 overturned a Texas law, which had effectively made sexual relationships between people of the same sex illegal in the state.
Obergefell OBERGA FELL v. Hodges, decided in 2015, affirmed same-sex couples can legally marry.
