WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was released from the hospital Friday morning after being hospitalized for a week with flu-like symptoms.

SCOTUS Blog reported at 10:32 a.m. Friday that Thomas had been discharged from the hospital but provided no further details. 

The news comes after Thomas was reported to have been admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. on March 18, according to a press statement.

LifeSiteNews had reported that doctors carried out tests on Thomas, diagnosing the 73-year-old “with an infection” and subsequently treating him using “intravenous antibiotics.”

According to a press release issued by the Supreme Court, Thomas’ condition had been improving by Sunday and he was expected “to be released from the hospital in a day or two.”

After several days passed, however, the Supreme Court’s Public Information Office did not provide an update on Thomas’ condition, giving rise to concerns regarding the justice’s health.

On Wednesday, outgoing liberal Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer told reporters outside Cafe Milano in Washington that Thomas was “fine.”

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.

The pro-life justice’s hospitalization has meant that Thomas has not participated in this week’s confirmation hearings for Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, who has been selected to replace Justice Breyer after he retires from the Court this year.

Jackson’s confirmation hearings have been fraught with controversy, as Republican Senators have probed the Circuit Court judge’s judicial record regarding alleged lenient sentencing for child pornography offenders. 

Jackson has also refused to define what a woman is or when life begins.

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.”
