Media Matters reports:
First of all, Obergefell is a bad Supreme Court decision and if we had a Supreme Court worth its salt, they would overturn Obergefell.
But they’re not going to. They explicitly say — Alito says, I think three separate times in that decision that I read in nearly its totality on the air yesterday, that this has no impact on other cases of different lines. Which is a clear reference to Obergefell, repeatedly.
But Democrats know deep in the cockles of their tiny little Grinch-like hearts on abortion, they know that the abortion issue is not a winner. So they’re trying to expand it out – well, you never know.
The Supreme Court, they might go after gay rights, they might go after — sure, you’re right. The same Supreme Court in which Neil Gorsuch idiotically ruled that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 covers transgender people is now going to overrule Obergefell.
Justice Alito wrote the opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.
Here he is a year ago talking about his opposition to Obergefell v. Hodges.

“This decision, and what Alito has to say about marriage equality, is a clear call to anyone who opposes marriage equality, who opposes LGBTQ+ equality, that they have a friend on the court. More than one friend.” — Jim Obergefell https://t.co/SZZOHwZn3k

Referencing the landmark cases that legalized marriage equality (Obergefell v. Hodges) and legalized private consensual sex (Lawrence v. Texas), Alito ominously wrote that, like abortion rights, “None of these rights has any claim to being deeply rooted in history.”
