49% : The cases he mentioned are Griswold vs. Connecticut, the 1965 ruling in which the Supreme Court said married couples have the right to obtain contraceptives; Lawrence v. Texas, which in 2003 established the right to engage in private sexual acts; and the 2015 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which said there is a right to same-sex marriage.
47% : While Thomas said that he agreed that nothing in the Roe-related ruling Friday "should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion ... in future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court's substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.""Because any substantive due process decision is 'demonstrably erroneous' ...
45% : Also overturned was another case dating to the1990s that made clear there was a constitutional right to abortion.
43% : The Supreme Court tossed out Roe v. Wade, which established abortion as a constitutional right.
40% : "The Court well explains why, under our substantive due process precedents, the purported right to abortion is not a form of 'liberty' protected by the Due Process Clause," of the U.S. Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, he wrote.
39% : Thomas, in the concurring opinion that he wrote siding with other conservative justices in voting to overturn Roe, cited the rationale for tossing out that decision as he called for other old cases unrelated to abortion to be reconsidered.
38% : Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Friday said that landmark high court rulings that established gay rights and contraception rights should be reconsidered now that the federal right to abortion has been revoked.
37% :Thomas argued that the right to abortion under that clause "is neither 'deeply rooted in this Nation's history and tradition' nor 'implicit in the concept of ordered liberty.'
