When someone who is usually quiet finally decides to break the silence – everyone should pay close attention to what he or she has to say.
That’s exactly what happened with Clarence Thomas, aka ‘the lion’ of the Supreme Court. His speech revolved around one of the most important issues of our day, one which exceeds politics, but rather based on a moral and belief.
According to information from Western Journal, in a brief 20-page concurrence, Thomas said that “enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability, of an unborn child, as planned parenthood advocates,” would ultimately constitutionalize “the views of the 20-th century eugenics movement.”
This isn’t only a slam for pro-abortion movements, but also a striking message for Planned Parenthood, clearly stating that protecting abortion on the basis of race is just protecting an outdated practice from the 20th century.
The reason behind all the noise surrounding this is because the practice itself selectively attempted to wipe out entire minority groups through the method of sterilization, the same method which later became modern-day Planned Parenthood.
There is plenty of information online revolving around this topic, and all it takes is a bit of research into the founder of PP, Margaret Sanger.
Without a doubt, Thomas echoed the sentiments of many Americans who demand the end of this practice, standing against the pro-choice lobbyists who want to strip unborn children of their rights.
The fight won’t be easy, nor short, but it definitely is something worth standing up for.
