Following the unexpected leak of the Supreme Court’s majority draft decision to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier this month, the nation which is sharply divided on abortion looked to the Justices for any indication of what the final decision might be.
Associate Justice Clarence Thomas warned that the leak(s) could mark the end of the high court’s legitimacy.
Thomas was speaking at the Old Parkland Conference in Dallas where he was Friday’s keynote speaker. The conference describes itself as a place “to discuss alternative proven approaches to tackling the challenges facing Black Americans today,”
An appointee of President George H.W. Bush and one of the court’s staunchest conservatives, Justice Thomas suggested that the unprecedented public release of the draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade has prompted the justices and their aides to look at each other with suspicion.
When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I’m in, it changes the institution fundamentally. You begin to look over your shoulder,” Thomas said. “It’s kind of like infidelity that you can explain it, but you can’t undo it.”
Thomas said that before the release of the draft opinion, made public by Politico last week, he considered that sort of disclosure unthinkable.
“If someone said that one line of one opinion would be leaked by anyone … you would say: ‘That’s impossible. No one would ever do that,’” the justice said. “That was verboten. It was beyond anyone’s understanding or at least anyone’s imagination.”
“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 as a country and I don’t think the prospects are good if we continue to lose them,” warned the conservative justice.
As the pro-abortion mob seethes following the illegal leak of the draft opinion, White House Press secretary Jen Psaki encouraged the Democrat base to intimidate the justices into upholding Roe v. Wade by protesting at their homes.
