“Interesting real life trolley problem in America now,” Simon Gwynn, tweeted. “If you had the chance to kill Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, the two oldest right wing Supreme Court judges, should you do it while Biden can get his nominees to replace them confirmed?”
“It’s interesting as an abstract question but becomes a real conundrum if, say, you’re terminally ill and have little to lose yourself, but know that it could save many women’s lives in the future,” Gwynn added.
Gwynn deleted the tweets Thursday because they were “pretty irresponsible,” but he said he didn’t think they violated Twitter’s terms of service.
I’ve removed my recent two tweets about the US Supreme Court as on reflection they’re obviously pretty irresponsible, though I don’t think they would be against Twitter’s TOS.— Simon Gwynn 🇺🇦 (@SimonGwynn) May 5, 2022
FYI I don’t endorse murdering anyone, but don’t think there’s anything wrong with thought experiments.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito canceled a public appearance Thursday after his opinion draft was published by Politico earlier this week.
