When it comes to abortion, for pro-life voters there is no more important issue in the presidential election than who will control the appointment process for one or more Supreme Court judges who will determine the fate of abortion for decades.

With that in mind, nervous vote pro-life voters were concerned when initial reports came out that pro-life Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thoma was reportedly considering retirement. Already having to replace deceased pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia next year, the last thing the pro-life movement needs to worry about is having to fight to hold on to Thomas’ seat as well.

Fortunately, those reports were inaccurate, according to Thomas’ wife, who, the Washington Examiner says rebutted its report:

In dismissing the retirement talk, Ginni Thomas had some fun poking our report. Her full post:

For all those who are contacting me about the possibility of my husband retiring, I say — unsubscribe from those false news sources and carry on with your busy lives.



IT. IS. BOGUS! Paul Bedard needs to find a phone in his life and unnamed sources are worth as much as their transparency is.

A funny close friend wrote me: “Next we’ll hear that you and he have bought a small private island near Nevis, with a large satellite dish so that all the Nebraska college sports games won’t be missed, and a large Green Egg that can slow cook the indigenous wild boar. Let us know when you are shipping off so we can all chip in to buy a suitable retirement present for your husband — perhaps matching lounge chairs and umbrellas.”

Recently, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump released a well-received list of 11 potential Supreme Court nominees — a list pro-life groups hailed for having strong supporters of the Constitution.

If Trump is the nominee, he would present a stark contrast on abortion to pro-abortion Democrat Hillary Clinton.
