Skip to comments.JUSTICE GINSBURG NEEDS TO EXPLAIN HERSELF ( Abortion & Eugenics )

Catholic League president Bill Donohue says U.S. Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs to explain her recent comment on abortion and eugenics:
Excerpts of a New York Times Magazine interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which will appear on July 12, include the following quote by the Supreme Court Justice about the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion: Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we dont want to have too many of.
By contrast, consider what Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, said about this subject:
· Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need We must prevent Multiplication of this bad stock. · Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race. · Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems. · We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all. · We dont want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.
There is another reason why Ginsburg needs to clarify her remark. Before she was seated on the Supreme Court in 1993, she hired 57 law clerks over a period of 13 years. All were white. Now if Antonin Scalia, for example, were associated with her disturbing remark, and if he had never hired a single African American, he already would have been branded a racist. At the very least, Ginsburg should be questioned about her explosive comment.
Why don’t you get it?
Abort, RATION and KILL it’s the plan all long.
What is the context of her quote? I was around in 1973, and the whole Zero Population Growth movement was big. I think she is correct in stating that the concern she described existed.
I agree. She should explain herself honestly. For pete’s sake, she is a Judge; not God.
Hillary has expressed her admiration for Margaret Sanger.
I’ll explain abortion for Ginsberg. Pro choice means aborting black and hispanics. You’re welcome Frau Ginsberg.
You mean curbing the black population by murdering their babies?
She needs to fully explain her position on Roe v Wade and explain it to the point that we are satisfied that NO PART of her position is in anyway related to those comments she made.
bttt to read later
I thoroughly disagree about Ginsberg explaining herself. She will only “explain it away.”
It stands on its own. She has explained herself.
It’s not about what Ginsberg needs to do. It’s about what us members of her serf classes need to do.
BTW, what makes Donohue think “HE” isn’t one of the populations she wishes there were fewer of?
Scary comments.What an agenda that we thought ended with Hitler.What was WW2 over?The fairy princess?
We know exactly what she meant.
She meant what she said.
I just have the short quote. I would have guessed she was referring to the severely mentally and physically challenged. But again, I don’t know the larger context, will be interested to see the full article.
Hasn’t that been the goal of Baby Killers, Inc. from the very beginning?
Do you really think it would have made any difference had her views been known during her confirmation? I don’t have quite that much faith in our pols.
She sure seems to want to fill Gods shoes like Hitler tried.These people are the ones that should be jailed for crimes against nature.
No story here. Move along.
Unless this came out of a conservative’s mouth. Then it would be breaking news for a month.
I don’t see what there is to explain. This was clear all along...
It will be interesting to see the black leaders reaction to this though.
