In Friday's 6 to 3 decision repealing the abortion rights established by Roe v. Wade, Thomas wrote a concurring opinion.

A 6 to 3 decision was reached on that issue. In a 5 to 4 ruling, Obergefell made same-sex marriage lawful worldwide.

In both the 2003 and 2015 Supreme Court rulings, Thomas, a 1991 court recruit, voiced his disagreement.

Thomas and fellow conservative Justice Samuel Alito called on the Supreme Court to "correct" its Obergefell decision in October 2020.
