Axios tried to smear Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas this week by falsely claiming that he said Covid-19 shots were manufactured using “aborted children,” a factually true statement.

“Clarence Thomas says COVID vaccines are created with cells from ‘aborted children,’” one Axios headline blared.

The basis for Axios’s blatant lie about the justice stemmed from one of Thomas’s dissents after the highest court in the land refused to take up a case challenging New York’s Covid shot mandate.

One look at the dissent published on Thursday shows that Thomas was simply quoting the petitioner’s argument, which stated some healthcare workers have a religious objection to Covid shots “due to their origin from ‘abortion-derived fetal cell lines in testing, development, or production.’”

“Petitioners are 16 healthcare workers who served New York communities throughout the COVID–19 pandemic. They object on religious grounds to all available COVID–19 vaccines because they were developed using cell lines derived from aborted children,” Thomas wrote.

Despite the fact that Thomas was obviously not taking a direct stance on the ethics of vaccines, corrupt corporate media outlets such as Politico and NBC News twisted the justice’s repetition of the plaintiff’s claims into the lie that Thomas was somehow spreading a “debunked claim” about Covid shots from the bench.
