“This very clearly paints a target on our right to privacy, our right to commit to the person we love and to form our families,” he said.

“What a dark day for our ability to control our own bodies, to make decisions about our own bodies,” he said. “What a dark day for our right to privacy. What an incredibly dark day for women in our nation.”

Obergefell criticized Thomas, saying he was “imposing his twisted sense of morality” on the country.
