Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas compared the leak of a draft opinion indicating Roe v. Wade will soon be overturned to infidelity.
The conservative justice spoke of a loss of trust in the high court during remarks Friday at an event in Dallas.
“When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I’m in, it changes the institution fundamentally. You begin looking over your shoulder,” he said, according to USA Today. He also said that, like infidelity, “you can explain it, but you can’t undo it.”
“I do think that what happened at the court is tremendously bad. I wonder how long we’re going to have these institutions at the rate we’re undermining them,” Thomas also said, per a reporter’s tweet.
Protests in favor of and against Roe’s reversal have popped up across the United States since a leaked draft opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization abortion case from Mississippi was published early last week. (Read more from “Clarence Thomas Slams Supreme Court Abortion Leak” HERE)
