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.

If she’s this sick, I’m not surprised she’s dying.

This should be a bombshell but, instead, it will simply fizzle. What a cold, ugly bigot.

I’m not so sure. Rush and Drudge need to hit hard. And with any luck, some GOPers with back bone will step up to the plate. And tie this fool to Dodomayor.

I still think, although I was much too optimistic in the early days, that the possibility of stopping a pregnancy very early is significant. The morning-after pill will become more accessible and easier to take. So I think the side that wants to take the choice away from women and give it to the state, they're fighting a losing battle. Time is on the side of change.

In other words:

Nana nana boo-boo, you uptight pro-lifers are out of luck because exterminating an unwanted uterine pest will soon be as simple as swallowing a pill and as comfortable as taking a laxative. Women will be able to terminate their pregnacies in the privacy of their homes away from prying eyes, so you bible-thumping party poopers can all just suck it!

I'm glad we have such mature and moral minds guarding our Constitution, aren't you?

Wow, nothing different than Hitler and Mengele. Only this time abortion will create the master race, instead of gas chambers. Chilling and creepy to the max!

But I thought libs were always for poor, oppressed, and downtrodden. I wonder how she squares her distaste for “undesirables” against her belief in court ordered racism to promote quotas in hiring and promotion of these same undesirables? Or the vast court ordered redistribution of wealth to aid these same undesirables?

Libs are so nuanced they can't see the difference between right and wrong, or life and genocide. Truly creepy!

Yes it is. It's also surprising that the media isn't covering for her.

The Left is very sure of themselves.

I think this was targeted towards whites, not blacks.

White guilt syndrome. You know, that thing that got Obama elected.

When I first read this, I thought that she was advocating eugenics, but a more careful reading suggests that was unfair. She was ascribing to the authors of the Roe decision such a view but realized by 1980 when they sustained the Hyde amendment blocking use of Medicare funds for abortion that she had been wrong in ascribing such motives to them.

"Wow, does she have a copy of Mein Kempf on the nightstand next to her bed."

More than likely. Pretty strange mutterings for a Jew.
