Donald Trump was only the President of the United States for 4 years. But in those 4 years, he was able to place 3 justices on the Supreme Court. And it now looks like all 3 of Trump’s judges will vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
But women aren’t the only people who could be under attack from the Supreme Court. According to Elizabeth Warren, gay and interracial marriage could also be in trouble.
During a Friday appearance on The View, Elizabeth Warren told the hosts:
“So when you read Justice Alito’s opinion, what he focuses on is history, and he says we don’t have to protect our access to abortion because historically we haven’t had that access. Boy, that oughtta make your gay friends nervous because we don’t have a long history of protecting equal marriage. We don’t have a long history of protecting interracial marriage. We don’t have a long history of protecting access to contraception. All of those things that we have now counted on instead — that’s the America we are — could potentially, under Justice Alito’s own analysis, go out. This is the reason we cannot have a right-wing fringe court dictate to the rest of America.”
