Other Cases To Reconsider Now That Roe vs Wade Has Been Overturned

Let’s examine what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said in his concurrence about the overturning of Roe vs Wade.

Thomas says that three cases need to also be reconsidered - 1) Griswold vs Connecticut, 2) Lawrence vs Texas, and 3) Obergefell vs Hodges.

Griswold vs Connecticut In 1965, Connecticut passed a law prohibiting any person from using “Any drug, medicinal article or instrument for the purpose of preventing conception.” By a vote of 7-2, the Supreme Court invalidated the law on the grounds that it violated the right to martial privacy.

Lawrence vs Texas In 2003, the Supreme Court ruled that a Texas law classifying sodomy as illegal, violated the privacy and liberty of adults to engage in private intimate conduct under the 14th Amendment.

Obergefell vs Hodges In 2015, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4, to require all 50 states to perform and recognize the marriages of same of same sex couples on the same terms and conditions as the marriages of opposite sex couples.

What do you think of these cases?
