Clarence Thomas Takes Advantage of this Case to Drop Major Truth Bombs about Abortion’s Racist Origins
LifeSiteNews.com reports that a U.S. Supreme ruling on Tuesday will not hold a ban on abortions that are based on child’s race, sex, or disability.
This ruling dealt with pro-life law signed in 2016, which had provisions that required the humane disposal of fetal remains and banned racist, sex-based abortions. The ruling kept the former provision intact, while the Supreme Court upheld a lower court’s decision to strike down the latter provision.
Before becoming President Donald Trump’s running mate, then Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed House Enrolled Act 1337 which banned abortions that were pursued on the grounds of a preborn child’s race, sex, ethnicity, or potential disabilities. Further, it required abortionists to bury or cremate fetal remains instead of treating them like medical waste.
Pro-abortion interests sued, using the argument of the American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) Ken Falk that every woman has an “absolute right as part of her privacy interests” to abort a child she deems undesirable. A district judged agreed with Planned Parenthood, and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals would later uphold these injunctions.
Last October, Indiana’s Republican Attorney General Curt Hill requested that the Supreme Court hear HEA 1337, contending that “right to abortion declared by our Supreme Court protects only the decision not to bear a child at all, not a right to decide which child to bear,” and remind the high court that “our nation knows only too well the bitter fruits of such discrimination.”
On Tuesday morning, the Court issued an unsigned order which reversed the Seventh Circuit’s decision that scrapped the fetal burial provision. However, the Court rejected the state’s request to reverse the previous lower court’s judgement on the portion of law which banned discriminatory abortions.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas took advantage of this decision to drop some inconvenient truths about abortion’s racist history.
The justice argued, “This law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.”
Thomas expanded on abortion’s ties to eugenics:
The use of abortion to achieve eugenic goals is not merely hypothetical. The foundations for legalizing abortion in America were laid during the early 20th-century birth control movement.
The birth control movement largely grew along with the American eugenics movement.
Thomas also exposed some unsavory truths about Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, “who recognized the eugenic potential of her cause.” The Supreme Court justice detailed some of Sanger’s views on race, which have generally been kept away from the public eye, and how these views shaped the history of the abortion movement.
This case highlights the fact that abortion is an act rife with the potential for eugenic manipulation. Although the Court declines to wade into these issues today, we cannot avoid them forever. Having created the constitutional right to an abortion, this Court is dutybound to address its scope.
Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years
A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.
As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
