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.

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.
