BOOM: Supreme Court Justice Thomas Rocks Pro-Abortion Lawyers With Tough Opening Questions

The U.S. Supreme Court, which started out as a respected, non-partisan, and crucial protector of the Constitutionality of laws passed by legislatures, has become highly partisan, as former U.S. presidents, from both parties, have only nominated potential justices who reflected their world views.

Following decades of Democratic President’s nominees getting confirmed, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Roe v Wade, on January 22, 1973, that abortion was a Constitutional “right”.

This ruling was front and center in today’s opening arguments concerning the legality of  Mississippi’s controversial 2018 law banning abortion, including in cases of rape and incest, before 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Justice Clarence Thomas has been a reliable Constitutional conservative on the Supreme Court for 30 years, but he has been known for his silence on the bench.

This week, Thomas broke his usual silence to ask a question that has pro-abortion activists unhinged.

“Does a mother have a right to ingest drugs and harm a pre-viable baby? Can the state bring child neglect charges against the mother?”, he asked.

Additionally, Thomas questioned where in the Constitution abortion is protected as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments over a Mississippi abortion law case that challenges Roe v. Wade.

“Would you specifically tell me, specifically state what the right is, is it specifically abortion? Is it a liberty? Is it liberty? Is it autonomy? Is it privacy?” Thomas asked.

100 Percent Fed Up – Before Justice Scalia’s death, Thomas went 10 years without asking a question during proceedings.

Clarence has expressed his frustration with the court’s refusal to take up abortion cases in the past.  In 2019, he wrote a scathing opinion about the court’s refusal to hear an Alabama case banning gruesome dismemberment abortions.  “The notion that anything in the Constitution prevents States from passing laws prohibiting the dismembering of a living child is implausible,” Thomas wrote.

“This case serves as a stark reminder that our abortion jurisprudence has spiraled out of control,” he further wrote.

The attorney representing Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the organization attempting to overturn the law, had this to say:

Thomas has long been a target of liberal pro-abortion activists, as he is one of the most outspoken pro-life justices to ever sit on the bench.
