For decades, the Democrat Party has looked to the Supreme Court to bypass Congress and legislate from the bench.
But one Justice has had enough.
And what they just said about the high Court just put the entire Democrat Party on notice.
Recently, Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the Supreme Court’s four liberal justices in the June Medical Services v. Russo case, striking down a Louisiana law that would uphold women’s health standards for doctors who perform abortions.
This decision set off a huge debate over how much power the U.S. Supreme Court has to read into already passed legislation.
And in his dissent to th, Justice Clarence Thomas criticized the Supreme Court’s decisions that seem to come out of thin air – including the Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.
“This Court created the right to abortion based on an amorphous, unwritten right to privacy, which it grounded in the ‘legal fiction’ of substantive due process,” Thomas says. “As the origins of this jurisprudence readily demonstrate, the putative right to abortion is a creation that should be undone.”
Justice Thomas went further, condemning his fellow Justices who read into constitutional amendments the right to abortion.
“In 1868, when the Fourteenth Amendment was ratified, a majority of the States and numerous Territories had laws on the books that limited (and in many cases nearly prohibited) abortion. It would no doubt shock the public at that time to learn that one of the new constitutional Amendments contained hidden within the interstices of its text a right to abortion. The fact that it took this Court over a century to find that right all but proves that it was more than hidden – it simply was not (and is not) there,” Thomas noted.
For the last 60 years, rogue Justices have put aside upholding the law as it is clearly written, in favor of reading their own bias into lawful precident.
But Justice Thomas shredded these far-left “legislate from the bench” judicial tactics, pointing out how appalled the American public of the time would be to hear that the Fourteenth Amendment is being used to peddle abortion.
And Thomas has now put the entire Democrat Party on notice by calling on the Court’s conservatives to strike down these outrageous rulings like June Medical Services v. Russo and Roe v. Wade – and return to upholding the law as it is actually written.
