Ginsburg: I thought Roe was to rid undesirables
WND ^ | 7/8/09 | staff

Posted on 07/08/2009 6:57:10 PM PDT by pissant

In an astonishing admission, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she was under the impression that legalizing abortion with the 1973 Roe. v. Wade case would eliminate undesirable members of the populace, or as she put it "populations that we don't want to have too many of."

Her remarks, set to be published in the New York Times Magazine this Sunday but viewable online now, came in an in-depth interview with Emily Bazelon titled, "The Place of Women on the Court."

(snip)

Question: Are you talking about the distances women have to travel because in parts of the country, abortion is essentially unavailable, because there are so few doctors and clinics that do the procedure? And also, the lack of Medicaid for abortions for poor women?

Ginsburg: Yes, the ruling about that surprised me. [Harris v. McRae – in 1980 the court upheld the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions.] Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. Which some people felt would risk coercing women into having abortions when they didn't really want them. But when the court decided McRae, the case came out the other way. And then I realized that my perception of it had been altogether wrong.

First I'll apologize to you in full view of everyone.

I saw two posts of yours where you kept writing “OMG P—S”. It honestly didn't occur to me that you were addressing pissant. It's really funny to me now that I know but I know it wasn't funny to you.

There has been a lot of bad language being used on the forum lately, you know all the words, and thankfully the Mods have been removing some of them.

So, I do apologize to you for misunderstanding. When we just read through, all we are seeing are those words.

I hope you'll accept my apology.

She’s dying.

As we all are.

I won’t comment.

You can comment without being disrepsectful. Although in this case it might be difficult. But i'm sure you could do it if you tried.

She's right about the roots of Roe, which are precisely tied to the Eugenics Elite, those wonderful Pragmatist Progressives who saddled America with the Prussian "school" model long enough in the past now that no one remembers anything different. Adolf Hitler may even have gotten some of his more notorious policies (so he claimed, anyway) from Indiana.

One day, some day, the excreble reality of where these policies and mindsets originated will be rediscovered, and the New Old Left, as it flounders along even when empowered at the moment, will be abandoned.

Let's see. I guess if anyone is interested, they should probably Google John Taylor Gatto, and his "Underground History of American Education."

All Justice Bader did was let fly with some of the family secrets. (I'm shocked, SHOCKED. to discover there's gambling going on at this establishment!)

It’s always been about eugenics. Sanger was pratically a Nazi.

Glad someone (in a public position) finally admitted the truth.

Don’t you imagine more than one R on the Judiciary Committee has his staff framing a line of questions for Sotomayor based on this interview right now?

Offer up a prayer to God for Ginsburg that she may not wish for eternity that she had never been born.

Of course I accept your apology, potlatch. I often address my fellow FReepers by their nics, or more still, by a shortened version of their nics. In fact, in this instance with pissant, I never think of it in the word that you were thinking. I always call him “piss” or “pissy” because I like him so much and I enjoy talking to him, and have for years. Sometimes when I write OMG I’m in a hurry and don’t properly put in the very important (I guess,) comma before I write the poster’s moniker. Most times I am a stickler for grammar and punctuation. I’ve never (that I can ever remember,) had a post deleted...and try very hard to not name-call. Now you have me worried that I had a post deleted somewhere. Can you tell me where? At any rate, if you read my posts on the board on most given days, I address FReepers by their names or silly or shortened versions. You just had my heart pounding, potlatch, when you said my “nasty” language. Take care and I loves ya and all your posts and such. Please FReepmail me if there is in fact a post of mine that you saw deleted.

In a similar vein, I keep expecting it to decimate the ranks of Democrat voters, but it keeps not happening.

If i were an up and comming Republican in the confirmation hearings for Sonya Sotomayer, I would ask this question.

In an Interview Ruth Ginsberg has stated the following about abortion and here is direct quote from the interview:

Question: Are you talking about the distances women have to travel because in parts of the country, abortion is essentially unavailable, because there are so few doctors and clinics that do the procedure? And also, the lack of Medicaid for abortions for poor women?

Ginsburg: Yes, the ruling about that surprised me. [Harris v. McRae – in 1980 the court upheld the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions.] Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. Which some people felt would risk coercing women into having abortions when they didn’t really want them. But when the court decided McRae, the case came out the other way. And then I realized that my perception of it had been altogether wrong.

How does that make you FEEL? How does that make you feel knowing you will serving on the same court as her?

Watching her jaw drop after that question would be quite the sight.

No, it wasn't one of your posts that was deleted. It was someone on another thread.

I'm glad you aren't mad. I feel like a fool now and wish someone had alerted me that I had misunderstood.

Thank you for replying. I'm heading to bed now, lol.

Potlatch, you are one of the nicest and neatest FReepers on the board. Everyone admires you—and I’m not mad and I’m sorry for the misunderstanding. Nitey-nite. :-)
