Friday, the Supreme Court issued one of the most significant decisions in American history.
The court reversed the 1973 judgment Roe v. Wade, which had established a legal right to abortion in the United States.
A majority of seven justices chose to overturn the left-leaning ruling.
However, Roe v. Wade is not the only case that has created an extraordinary constitutional right in American law.
A Supreme Court judgment also compelled the nation to accept same-sex marriage.
The 2015 judgement in Obergefell v. Hodges mandated that all states recognize and authorize same-sex marriages.
In his Friday opinion, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas questioned the merits of Obergefell.
In fact, Thomas specifically mentioned the court verdict on gay marriage.
In a separate concurring opinion, Thomas argues that the court should reexamine its protection of contraception, same-sex partnerships, and same-sex marriage.

Thomas also referenced a case that prohibits the punishment of sodomy and a case that regulates contraception.
Many conservatives have given up on the U.S. government ever again defining marriage as between one man and one woman, abandoning the struggle to maintain what many would regard to be a vital pillar of not only U.S. society, but Western civilisation as a whole.
More on this story via The Western Journal:
Thomas also mentioned a court case regulating contraception and a case that forbids punishment for sodomy.
Many conservatives have given up on the U.S. government ever again defining marriage as solely between one man and one woman, thus abandoning the fight to preserve what many would consider a fundamental building block not just of U.S. society, but of Western civilization itself.
But if the court can act to overrule Roe, it’s not out of the question that it might act to reverse the judicial social engineering set forth by its predecessors following World War II.
This could change the fate of the United States like few political and legal developments in the nation’s history.
