ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - In a concurring opinion released today, Justice Clarence Thomas said that the Supreme Court, should “reconsider” its past rulings allowing for access to contraception, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriages.

What’s next? That’s what everyone wants to know.

Prof. Anthony Kreis from Georgia State University College of Law joined CBS46 to explain what will happen next now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned.

“The right to privacy is a bundle of rights. It’s many different sticks and when you remove one of those sticks, the bundle becomes much looser and much more susceptible to litigation and attack. And that’s what we’re seeing here today. The right to abortion has been lifted from that bundle and so those other rights to privacy, like the right to choose a same-sex partner, like the right to choose a marital partner of your choice, like the right to order your life in a certain way, including access to contraception, all these things are much more susceptible today than they were yesterday.”
