Louisiana abortion July 1, 2020 - In a scathing rebuke of a ruling supported by Chief Justice John Roberts against abortion restrictions, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling has no constitutional basis and must be overruled.
Thomas issued the dissent in the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in June to strike down a Louisiana law. The law requires that individuals who perform abortions at clinics have admitting privileges in a nearby hospital.
The majority found the law unconstitutional, concluding it places an undue burden on women seeking abortions. But in his 20-page dissent, Thomas called the right to an abortion an erroneous precedent grounded in a legal fiction. www.wnd.com/2020/06/clarence-thomas-erupts-chief-justice
