Ruth Bader Ginsburg says first-trimester abortion is 'far-safer than childbirth' while eviscerating controversial Louisiana bill

Ruth Bader Ginsburg dismantled a controversial Louisiana abortion bill during an hour of arguments at the US Supreme Court this week, systematically striking down components of the law she previously opposed during a preliminary vote.

The 86-year-old Supreme Court justice seemed to aggressively push back against demands from lawyers representing the Trump administration and state of Louisiana to approve the legislation during Wednesday’s arguments.

“If the woman has a problem, it will be her local hospital that she will need to go to for the care, not something 30 miles from the clinic, which does not have a necessary relationship to where she lives”, she said.

Moreover, the justice argued that women who have abortions rarely ever require medical treatment afterwards.

“Most of the people who get abortions never have any need to go to a hospital, isn't that so?" she asked the attorneys, later adding: “You don't dispute … that among medical procedures, first-trimester abortion is among the safest, far safer than childbirth."

The attorneys acknowledged that, while women occasionally require hospitalization after having an abortion, it’s “often true” that they do not.

The justice reminded attorneys that the Supreme Court “already held that admitting privileges served no medical benefit”.

“There is not even a plausible conflict in this case”, she said, according to a transcript of the arguments.

Wow! Using the word eviscerate in the same sentence with abortion is pretty sick stuff

There has to be a special place in Hell for people who use the words “safe” and “abortion” in the same sentence.

Has there been a vote of the Nine though? Who expected anything else from RBG.

Medically, that may be true. But it doesn’t change the fact that’s patently wrong.

First tri-semester abortion is far safer than child birth for who, Madam Justice - the child or the mother?

Remember that RBG says you need abortion so you don’t have too many people of the types you don’t want.

That knock on your door is Robert Redford and he needs help.

No way it is DEATH. Please let him in.

Gee, I didn't know RBG was a medical professional! Is she board certified, too?

Yes and at 86 she is terrifyingly close to seeing it if she doesn't change her ways.

Not safer for the child, Evil Weeotch.

MILLIONS of babies would love to chime in, but they are, sadly, unavailable for comment, to this vile specimin.

Have you noticed the left is now referring to “people” when discussing pregnancy issues rather than “women”? And they call us the “science deniers”.
