Thomas: Courts Shouldn’t Make Decisions On Abortion

Robin Marty

Good to know that one of the votes on the Supreme Court doesn't believe the court should be involved.

It’s likely that at least one — if not more than one — restriction on abortion will end up at the Supreme Court within the next year or so.  So it’s not terribly comforting to know at least one member of the court thinks the court shouldn’t have a say at all.

So says Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who spoke at a law school in Nebraska this week.

Via The Omaha World Herald:

Moral questions such as abortion and capital punishment shouldn’t be left to the court’s discretion. The judicial system is too involved with such cases, he said. “I don’t know about all these big moral issues more than anyone else. Citizens and political leaders need to make these decisions.”
