Justice Clarence Thomas Calls Out Liberal Colleagues Over Double Standard In Handling Juvenile Murders Versus Abortion
SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas recently shared his frustration with his liberal colleagues on the bench of the highest court in the land due to their hypocrisy in considering minors mature enough to make the decision to terminate a child’s life in the womb, but not mature enough to be given the full penalty of the law for committing murder and other violent crimes.
“When addressing juvenile murderers, this Court has stated that ‘children are different’ and that courts must consider ‘a child’s lesser culpability,” said Thomas. “And yet, when assessing the Court-created right of an individual of the same age to seek an abortion, Members of this Court take pains to emphasize a ‘young woman’s right to choose.'”
After naming multiple cases as example, he continued by pointing how the “Court’s view of the maturity of minors ebbs and flows depending on the issue.”
Thomas made the comments in the footnotes of the case of Jones v. Mississippi, which addressed the sentence of a criminal, Brett Jones, who brutally stabbed his grandfather to death at age 15.
The court ruled 6-3 Thursday to not impose new restrictions that would allow minors to receive life in prison without the possibility of parole. The court has previously ruled that life sentences for minors convicted for homicide were “cruel and unusual punishment” and therefore a violation of the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution.
A kid who is old enough to get an abortion, which is murdering a child in the womb, is obviously old enough to know and understand the full extent of what it means to take the life of another human being, thus when they commit the act of murder they deserve the full penalty of the law.
This is pretty simple. Unfortunately, where the radical left fails is the consistent application of their worldview. Which is impossible because their worldview is full of holes and is contradictory on many levels, thus making it illegitimate.
