In an interview with New York Times reporter Emily Bazelon, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg defended the controversial Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout the United States, calling it essential for ensuring that society can lawfully control population growth.
Ginsburg said she was concerned that since the 1973 Court case was decided some states have taken measures aimed at limiting the scope of abortions. This is a case, I think, where society must preserve its options, Ginsburg said. Requiring under-age girls to get parental permission, for example, is a step in precisely the wrong direction. These girls arent ready for motherhood. Terminating their pregnancies is the wise choice. We shouldnt be impeding it.
The Justice also castigated the congress passage of the so-called Hyde Amendment in 1980 forbidding federal funds from being used to perform abortions. That affected a segment of the population that needed culling, Ginsburg asserted. Forcing the birth of these children breeds all manner of social ills driving up other costs that the government must incur to support these children and to arrest and incarcerate them as they grow up. Nipping them in the bud, so to speak wouldve been the more efficient course of action.
In related news, President Obama reiterated his complaint that he is being unfairly criticized by anti-abortion extremists. They talk as if I have blood on my hands, Obama said. The truth is, Ive never personally harmed a single unborn child. I am just a public servant carrying out the wishes of the voters on this difficult issue. My aim has been to balance competing objectives in the best interests of society as a whole. Right now, that society demands that abortion be legal and freely available even to those who cant afford it.
Whether Obamas claim of that a lack of direct participation in the performing of any abortion absolves him of moral responsibility is dubious. Hitler never personally harmed a single Jew either.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, NAZI. Eugenics in high places.
She sure resembles a prune.
the full weekly column should be posted later today at...
I will be on vacation the next few weeks. Column resumes August 8.
I love it when the mask slips off and we can look pure horror squarely in the face.
“Column resumes August 8.”
Thanks for the warning John ;)
Why? We could just euthanize old people who’ve out lived their usefulness as jurists.
You forgot one: Margaret Sanger.
Barry and Holdren, among others, are great admirers and followers of her.
The “prune excess population” via abortion will also include the so-called counciling alternatives to the elderly in ObamaCare which will offer discussions on assisted suicide, etc.
Total agreement. We need to prune excess judges.
Same thought- interesting choice of words from an old prune-face!
Population growth = births minus deaths
We can easily solve the equation at the death side, not the birth side. A couple pogroms, one should remind Ms. Ginsburg, also controls the population.
Securing the borders could adequately PRUNE EXCESS POPULATION, you blithering socialist idiots.
Enjoy your vacation!
Prune?...PRUNE???? What is getting pruned? Who does the pruning? May I be the PRUNER please?...cripes....
I pray that she lives until a Conservative Republican is presdient (2012 at the latest) and then that God strikes her dead. The blood of these children cries out against her.
We wont need euthanasia soon. When the Obamacare comes into effect, we simply wont give older people treatment. They will die.
Kill the babies, let the old folks die. Its a simple Socialist program that will work.
Next they figure a way to turn us into food and Soylent Green will become reality.
I thought Ginsberg was Jewish. Am I mistaken?
It seems to me that Hitler’s form of eugenics (Jews, homosexuals, mentally challenged) is horrific. Period. No “ands”, “Ifs” or “buts”. But to a liberal, the eugenics is only troublesome if they aren’t the ones to pick which trees get pruned.
Enjoy your vacation.
I will NOT enjoy missing your posts!
Thanks again for the fun.
