(LifeSiteNews) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito struck a defiant tone last week in his first public remarks since authoring the majority opinion that overturned Roe v. Wade, mocking the disapproval he has received from foreign leaders for returning abortion policy to the democratic process.

“I had the honor this term of writing I think the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a whole string of foreign leaders who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law,” the conservative justice said July 21 in newly-released video from a University of Notre Dame Law School conference in Rome.

“One of these was former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but he paid the price,” Alito quipped, referring to Johnson’s resignation amid scandal. “But what really wounded me – what really wounded me – was when the Duke of Sussex addressed the United Nations and seemed to compare the decision whose name may not be spoken with the Russian attack on Ukraine.”

Earlier this month, Prince Harry told the U.N. that “the rolling back of Constitutional rights in the United States” was part of “a global assault on democracy and freedom.”

“Well, despite this temptation, I’m not going to talk about cases from other countries,” Alito said. 

On the main topic of the conference, religious liberty, Alito said the challenge in maintaining it was to “convince people that religious liberty is worth defending if they don’t think that religion is a good thing that deserves protection.”

“Ultimately, if we’re going to win the battle to protect religious freedom, in an increasingly secular society, we will need more than positive law,” he argued, adding that people need to be persuaded that religious liberty “provides a way for religiously diverse people to hold together and to flourish,” as illustrated by “the American experience.”

“The champions of religious liberty, who ‘go out as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves’ can expect to find hearts that are open to their message,” Alito concluded.

Ever since the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and returning the ongoing debate over the barbaric practice of abortion back to the states, left-wing zealots, politicians, and rioters have taken to the streets and the airwaves to fan the flames of division.

And perhaps no one has epitomized this unhinged rage more than twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Taking her anger out on Justice Clarence Thomas, Clinton has once again shown her propensity for bitterness, hostility towards our Constitution and rule of law, and hatred towards those with differing philosophies from her own.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Justice Clarence Thomas against hateful attacks by radical liberals like Hillary Clinton.

The Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which saw a 6-3 majority rule in favor of overturning both Roe v. Wade and 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey, was a long time coming: In 1973, seven Justices of the Supreme Court (all males) created a phony constitutional "right" to abortion out of thin air, opening the floodgates to practically unfettered access to abortion across the nation and resulting in the killing of more than 60 million innocent, unborn babies in the nearly 50 years that followed.

But with Roe now out of the picture, this decision will officially fall back to the states, who, by way of their elected lawmakers, may now opt to permit, restrict, or even outright ban the practice of abortion altogether. 

And while the majority opinion in Dobbs was penned by Associate Justice Samuel Alito, most of the left's ire in the aftermath of its publication has been directed at a different Justice: Conservative constitutionalist Clarence Thomas, currently the bench's only African-American member, who wrote his own separate concurrence acknowledging other past cases which were decided on similar, constitutionally-lacking bases that could potentially be revisited in the future.

Perhaps no disgruntled abortion supporter has gone out of their way more to deride this ruling and Justice Thomas than former First Lady and Obama Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who let her utter contmept for the unborn, the Constitution, and Justice Thomas show in a CBS interview with Gayle King earlier this week.



In her deeply personal attack, Clinton claimed that Justice Thomas, a Yale Law School classmate of hers in the early 1970s (when Roe was first decided), was a "person of grievance for as long as I've known him. Resentment, grievance, anger."

She then went on to criticize the court's ruling in Dobbs, repeating without evidence that "women are going to die" as a result, all while (predictably) ignoring the potentially millions of unborn babies who will now live because of Justices' timely decision.

So while pro-abortion liberals like Hillary Clinton continue to lament the outcome of Dobbs and smear conservative Justices like Clarence Thomas with personal attacks simply for abiding by the text of the Constitution, the pro-life movement and millions of Americans who believe in the constitutional right to life can take pride in nearly half a century's work to achieve the end of Roe, and begin the real work of ending the barbaric practice of abortion in the United States.

Now is the time to put out-of-touch elitists like Hillary Clinton on notice that momentum is on the side of life once again and that America is rejecting the culture of death that has penetrated our way of life for far too long.

Now is the time to stand with pro-life, conservative constitutionalists like Justice Clarence Thomas!

SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Justice Clarence Thomas against attacks from leftists like Hillary Clinton, and thank him for courageously standing up for life and the Constitution!

Thank you!

In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court decided 6-3 to uphold Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, and 5-4 to overturn Roe, the 1973 precedent that forced all fifty states to allow most abortions.

Roe’s constitutional analysis was far outside the bounds of any reasonable interpretation of the various constitutional provisions to which it vaguely pointed,” Alito wrote. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Roe’s overturn sparked the activation of scores of pro-life laws across the country. Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has suspended abortions and/or closed locations in reaction to the ruling, and pro-life attorneys general have declared their intentions to enforce their states’ duly-enacted abortion prohibitions. 

But leftists prosecutors in dozens of localities have vowed not to enforce such laws, and abortion allies have turned to supporting interstate travel for abortion to skirt new laws, ensuring that work and debate will continue over the prospect of banning abortion nationally. President Joe Biden has called for electing more Democrats to Congress to support codifying a “right” to abortion-on-demand in federal law.
