Justice Thomas Clarence Thomas suggests Reviewing and Removing other previously decided Supreme Court Rulings
Same-sex marriage, Same-sex relationships, and contraception are all in danger...
Roe v. Wade has officially been overturned in what can be considered one of the most sickening moves by our current Supreme Court. Justice Clarence Thomas has also indicated that the Supreme Court should and would reconsider rulings that protect access to same-sex marriage, contraception, and same-sex relationships.
The decision made today eliminates the standard set by the ruling of Roe v. Wade.
Thomas wrote, "For that reason, in future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court's substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.” In lamen terms, the court should examine other cases that fall under the Court's previous due process precedents.
America’s Due Process Clause ensures that any American has the right to due process before anybody is able to take away their inalienable rights.
Griswold v. Connecticut was a decision decided in 1965 and declared people to have the right to privacy granted by the Bill of Rights that protects against restrictions surrounding contraception. If the Supreme court decides to overturn this ruling, birth control can and most likely will become illegal.
Lawrence v. Texas was a decision decided in 2003 declaring that individuals of the same sex were able to have intimate sexual relations.
Obergefell v. Hodges was a decision decided in 2015 that gave individuals the right to same-sex marriage.
