WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been hospitalized since Friday with “flu-like symptoms.”

The pro-life, conservative justice was admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. on Friday night, a press statement from the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) announced on Sunday evening.

After doctors carried out tests on Thomas, he “was diagnosed with an infection” and subsequently treated using “intravenous antibiotics.”

According to the press release, the 73-year-old justice’s condition is improving and he “expects to be released from the hospital in a day or two.”

“Justice Thomas will participate in the consideration and discussion of any cases for which he is not present on the basis of briefs, transcripts, and audio of the oral arguments,” the statement reads.

Messages of praise and offerings of prayers for Thomas from fellow conservatives flooded social media following the news of his health scare.

Joe Biden’s pick to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court is abortion defender D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman nominated to the nation's highest court ever.

By choosing Brown Jackson, Biden is fulfilling two campaign promises at the same time: first, to use every tool at his disposal to defend and promote the killing of the most innocent; and, second, to make the nation’s highest court more "diverse."

Of course, Biden could have achieved "diversity" by different means (and, as a "Catholic," he should have), but, as throughout the rest of tenure in office, he has chosen to pursue the deadly path of promoting abortion.

And, make no mistake: Planned Parenthood and NARAL are ecstatic about Brown Jackson.

SIGN and SHARE this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Unlike most previous nominees to the Supreme Court, Brown Jackson has a judicial history of supporting abortion - which should be enough to cause Senators to reject her.

In the 1990s, she wrote an amicus brief defending a Massachusetts law that banned protests outside of abortion clinics. Thankfully, the law was ruled unconstitutional in 2000, but it shows how Brown Jackson intends to use the law to silence free speech so that the killing can continue without protest.

Pro-lifers are unanimous in their opposition to Brown Jackson, while the pro-abortionists are undivided in their zeal for her nomination.

SIGN and SHARE this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Carrie Severino, president of the pro-life Judicial Crisis Network, warned of an imminent free speech threat, stating that in her "buffer-zone" amicus brief, Brown Jackson "repeatedly disparaged the peaceful and often prayerful clinic protesters as engaging in ‘in-your-face’ and ‘chaotic’ activity that somehow fell short of ‘pure speech.’"

And, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List stated her organization's opposition to Brown Jackson's nomination, saying: "She is on record opposing the free speech rights of pro-life advocates pleading to save lives outside abortion centers and supporting the false claim that abortion is ‘health care.’"

But, the country's top abortion groups are celebrating Brown Jackson’s appointment.

Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson wrote in a tweet addressed to Jackson: "We can’t wait to see the fantastic work you will do and will be here to support you along the way,"

And, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju agreed.

"Judge Jackson … has a demonstrated record of defending and upholding our constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms — including reproductive freedom," Timmaraju said. "We are confident that she will be a voice for justice, equity, and freedom on the Court in the decades to come."

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Pro-life advocate Lila Rose and journalist Jack Posobiec called for prayers for the jurist, while conservative author Nick Adams tweeted that “[n]ow, more than ever, America needs this man at his strongest.”

Thomas is the second black man to ascend to the Supreme Court, taking the place of liberal justice and first black member Thurgood Marshall in 1991 after being nominated by President George H.W. Bush. Thomas is currently the longest-serving member on the bench with a tenure of over 30 years.

Following the retirement of left-leaning judge Stephen Breyer in January, President Joe Biden nominated D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to replace him.

Pro-life groups have warned that Jackson is radically pro-abortion while abortion advocates have welcomed her nomination, with NARAL pro-choice America President Mini Timmaraju saying Jackson has “a demonstrated record of defending and upholding our constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms — including reproductive freedom.”

Jackson is slated to appear before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Monday, kicking off a four-day hearing process for her potential succession to the nation’s highest court.
