Clarence Thomas says abortion leak has changed Supreme Court

14 days ago   |   By

WASHINGTON - Justice Clarence Thomas says the Supreme Court has been changed by the shocking leak of a draft opinion earlier this month. The opinion suggests the court is poised to overturn the right to an abortion recognized nearly 50 years ago in Roe v. Wade.

Justice Clarence Thomas, the longest-serving member of the Supreme Court, declared Friday that the publication of a draft majority opinion on abortion has permanently damaged trust within the nation's highest court and is a symptom of a broader decline in America's institutions.
"I do think that what happened at the court is tremendously bad," Thomas declared during a discussion at a conference for Black conservatives in Dallas. "I wonder how long we're going to have these institutions at the rate we're undermining them and then I wonder when they're gone or destabilized what we will have...
