In a 6-3 majority the Supreme Court issued a momentous ruling on Friday—the court overturned its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that had erroneously enshrined a federal right to abortion in the United States.
But Roe v. Wade is not the only decision that created a constitutional right unprecedented in American law.
Same-sex marriage was also pushed upon the nation through a Supreme Court case—equally erroneous, no?
The 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges ruling required every state to recognize and license same-sex marriages.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas questioned the merits of Obergefell in his opinion on the Friday ruling.
In his solo concurring opinion, Justice Thomas said the court should reconsider rulings that protect contraception, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriage.
In fact, he singled out the gay marriage court ruling by name.
He also mentioned a court case regulating contraception and a case that forbids punishment for sodomy.
Many conservatives have given up on the U.S. government ever again defining marriage as solely between one man and one woman, thus abandoning the fight to preserve what many would consider a fundamental building block not just of U.S. society, but of Western civilization itself.
Justice Thomas’s impetus could lead to a change of fate in the United States like few political and legal developments in the nation’s history.
[I]f the court can act to overrule Roe, it’s not out of the question that it might act to reverse the judicial social engineering set forth by its predecessors following World War II.
Final thought, the Left has pushed the envelope: Decisions such as Equal Rights and Title Nine quickly led to the extremes of same-sex marriage, biological males competing in female sports, trans-sexualism, child grooming, choice of bathroom facilities iaw attitude of the day, pronoun complications, etc., etc.
The left was not content with minor change and insisted on pushing the envelope too far too quickly. Now common-sense Conservatism may stuff the envelope down their throats.
