Clarence Thomas, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Public domain.

At a lecture at the University of Notre Dame, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas defended the integrity of the Court by responding, in part, to radical abortion activists who are upset the nation’s highest court didn’t can a new Texas law that saves babies from abortion.

Life News reports:

He criticized those who, like abortion activists on Texas, are for “destroying our institutions because they don’t give us what we want, when we want it.”

Thomas’ comments came as pro-abortion Democrats criticize the high court for allowing a Texas pro-life law to go into effect. The law prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy.

“I think the media makes it sound as though you are just always going right to your personal preference,” Thomas said. “So if they think you are anti-abortion or something personally, they think that’s the way you always will come out. They think you’re for this or for that. They think you become like a politician.”

Thomas said some people oppose the decisions of the Supreme Court simply because the decision wasn’t the outcome the preferred.

“We have lost the capacity to not allow others to manipulate our institutions when we don’t get the outcomes that we like,” he said. “I think we should be careful destroying our institutions because they don’t give us what we want when we want it. I think we should be really, really careful,” he said.

It’s about time some part of our Constitution is backing the American people and not the “media” … Those “Texans” that wish to abort will simply need to visit another state …

and then we’ll need to go to battle in that other state. I hope Texas is the first domino in the domino effect.

Actually, they will follow “history”. When abortion was totally UNlegal, dems (I was one back then) got a law passed to ALLOW abortions for three instances: 1) rape, 2) incest, 3) if the mother’s life is in danger. All “they” needed was to find a doctor willing to put in writing that continuing the pregnancy would endanger the woman’s life and the abortion became legal. Don’t know how the heartbeat law reads, but all “they” have to do is find 1 or 2 or more doctors willing to state a heartbeat cannot be detected.
IF you believe ALL doctors are true believers and would never entertainviolating our laws, I have some oceacen-side property in AZ to sell you for a bargain price.
There has already been at least one opponent claiming at that early stage, any heartbeat detected is NOTHING MORE THAN AN ECHO OF THE WOMAN’S HEARTBEAT.

Clarence Thomas is the epitome of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. You know – the part where King said he longs for the day when people are judged “by the content of their character” and NOT the color of their skin.
