Clarence Thomas Warns SCOTUS: Address Abortion Issue Before It Becomes a Tool of ‘Eugenic Manipulation’

Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is calling for the issue of abortion to be addressed before it can “become a tool of eugenic manipulation.”

Thomas wrote a concurring opinion on the decision to not review an Indiana law banning abortions based on race, sex, or disability.

The justice wrote in his opinion that “further percolation may assist” a review of the Indiana law and could potentially “promote a state’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.”

He claimed that the court will eventually have to address the issue due to the controversial nature and potential ethical problems.

“Although the court declines to wade into these issues today, we cannot avoid them forever,” Thomas wrote. “Having created the constitutional right to an abortion, this court is dutybound to address its scope.”

In his opinion, Thomas also wrote that the Indiana case “highlights the fact that abortion is an act rife with the potential for eugenic manipulation.”

He also cited quotes from Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger as “evidence” that abortion could quickly turn into population control.

“Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th-century eugenics movement,” Thomas said.

European countries were also brought up in his opinion, with Iceland’s abortion rate for Down Syndrome children nearing 100%. Thomas claimed that some of these reasons for having an abortion were having an effect on America as well.

“Some believe that the United States is already experiencing the eugenic effects of abortion,” Thomas said, pointing out that the abortion rate for African American women was 3.5 times the national average for white women.

As IJR Red previously reported, some states are passing laws to restrict abortions, and the issue may be addressed again by the Supreme Court in the near future.

I think Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is absolutely right! The Democrats and the Global Secret Society have had the mission to control the Global Population and this was a means of providing for their mission. Lord help those who are deranged enough to not see the error of their ways and thinking!

http://www.numberofabortions.com/ Murdering our own flesh and blood is proof we are a degenerate people. Look at this count of how many abortions world wide and in the United States. We are committing atrocities right in our own backyard and wearing blinders while doing so. All will be accountable in the end who are complicit in this ignorant murdering scheme.

Justice Thomas: Does this mean you would be against the proposal by 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders that it should be permissible to choose the sex of a fetus to be aborted? IOW; parents who don’t want girls should be able to legally abort all females? Wouldn’t you agree this is a form of “population reduction”? What happens when there are no more females to produce children? Does the United States become a Nation of homosexuals? How will that fly with the Muslim population? So many questions with no answers.

It is a definite concern. I’m pretty steadfast in my pro choice beliefs, but even i can concede that abortion soley on race or gender makes me extremely uncomfortable.

The only concern i would have is how someone would prove a decision was made strictly for those reasons.
