Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is, once again, under attack.
And, once again, the attacks are from liberals who cannot tolerate Thomas' consistent, unyielding and faithful commitment to America's founding principles.
The latest concerns Thomas' 20-page opinion offered up in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, recently considered by the Supreme Court.
Planned Parenthood challenged Indiana law prohibiting abortion for reasons of sex, race or non-life threatening deformity.
The challenge was upheld in district court and the law overturned. However, the Supreme Court chose not to rule on the matter for procedural reasons, turning it back to be heard on appeal at the district level.
But Justice Thomas used the occasion to write an extended opinion on this important abortion case because the principles involved are too important to ignore for America's present and for our future.
According to the Indiana law as enacted, doctors must inform women that "Indiana does not allow a fetus to be aborted solely because the fetus's race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, or diagnosis or potential diagnosis of the fetus having Down syndrome or any other disability."
What liberal would ever tolerate American law protecting this type of discrimination?
Yet these same liberals are adamant that abortion for these same reasons is just fine.
Thomas seized on what is obvious, writing, "Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th- century eugenics movement."
The eugenics movement advocated public policies to manipulate the population to produce what is deemed to be a public that is genetically superior.
In other words, bureaucrats decide the value of human beings who's worthwhile to have around and who's not.
