Justice Thomas Hints He Opposes Roe v. Wade
Republicans around the country are taking action on abortion legislation in anticipation of the Supreme Court’s possible ruling on Roe v. Wade.
Democrats are concerned as Republicans are passing a wave of anti-abortion measures in numerous states.
Virginia joined 21 other states in petitioning the Supreme Court to overturn Mississippi’s 15-week abortion restriction and reaffirm the court’s basic ruling in Roe v. Wade. The Commonwealth will also join 19 Republican attorneys general and a dozen red-state governors in pushing for states to regulate abortion legislation.
Meanwhile, Justice Clarence Thomas made it clear in December via his line of questioning that he opposes Roe v. Wade. With a possible decision looming, liberals have stepped up their attacks on Thomas, who was recently hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.
