Justice Thomas Says Supreme Court Should Now Consider Overturning Gay Marriages After Overturning Roe v. Wade

Before today, Justice Clarence Thomas hadn’t asked a question from the Supreme Court bench since Feb. 22, 2006

 

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has argued that the Supreme Court “should reconsider” laws protecting gay marriage and contraception after Roe v. Wade was overturned.

Following Friday’s landmark decision that revoked Americans’ constitutional rights to abortion, Thomas called on his fellow Judges to overturn previous rulings that followed similar legal precedent, such as rights to contraception access, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriage.

 

The 74-year-old justice, an appointee of President George H.W. Bush,  argued that since the Constitution’s Due Process Clause was found not to secure a right to an abortion in Friday’s ruling, the court should apply that same logic to other landmark cases.

 

He cited three in particular – including 1965’s Griswold v. Connecticut, which allowed for married couples to buy and use contraception, and 2015’s Obergefell v. Hodges, which allowed same-sex couples to legally marry.

 

“In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell,” he wrote.
