Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) just put a massive target on his head for his next Senate run.
During a recent interview, Cruz commented on the cases that Justice Thomas brought up after Roe v. Wade.
Cruz agreed, the Supreme Court decision that allowed same-sex marriages to be federally protected was overreach.
Will Never Happen
Rest assured, there is no way this court will ever overturn Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that covers same-sex marriage that was decided in 2015.
The court has already seen what overturning Roe v. Wade has done and this court will not want to get involved in that mess again anytime soon.
Right or wrong, it is not going to happen, but Ted Cruz thinks it should.
The Texas Senator stated that the decision made in that case was “overreaching” and “was clearly wrong when it was decided.”
However, he agreed that the court does not have “any appetite” for overturning these cases.
In fact, Justices Alito and Kavanaugh stated as much in the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.
Alito wrote that “we emphasize that our decision concerns the constitutional right to abortion and no other right.”
Kavanaugh added, “Nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion.”
Thomas went a bit too extreme, also stating that they need to look at Griswold v. Connecticut, which centers around access to birth control.
I believe that Cruz hit the nail on the head when he said the court has no desire to even look at these other cases, at least for now.
In the meantime, he and Thomas have given the whackos on the left some soundbites to feast off for the 2022 and 2024 election cycles.
