Ruth Bader Ginsburg And Abortion as Eugenics

Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave an interview with the New York Times, which will be published in this Sunday’s New York Times magazine.  A portion of the interview is already available online.  In the interview, Ginsburg makes a rather incredible claim about the purpose, in her mind, of the landmark Roe V. Wade decision.

JUSTICE 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.

So Ginsburg, who was heavily involved in feminist and pro-abortion circles in the 1970s and 80s, and a fierce proponent of aborton, feels that its original purpose was to control population growth among people “that we don’t want to have too many of.”  This is eugenics at its core, social engineering to control the type of people who can be born.  While shocking, it should not come as a shock to anyone who knows the history of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.  Sanger was a committed eugenicist and racist, and advocated birth control and abortion to lower-income people with the purpose of keeping their population under control, so that the undesirable populations (blacks, Jews, etc.) would begin to die off while the white master race would survive.  The whole pro-abortion movement is marred with the stein of its eugenics past, but what is so alarming is that the above statement came from a sitting Supreme Court Justice.  If not for the fact that Obama would replace her with someone equally as liberal (and insane), I would be calling for her resignation.

Man — you have nailed it. A direct line of “progressive” thought from Margaret Sanger, Adolph Hitler to Ruth Bader Ginsburg a sitting justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. If a reader is having a hard time making this connection, Just Read Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Facism”.

Cleaning out stuff from my computer… Came across this from last year.

Imagine Sarah Palin or any conservative discussing “populations we don’t want to have too many of”. Though this story ran in the NY Times, it wasn’t covered by any of the mainstream press.

This woman should be shunned by polite society. Sadly she’s a hero to many.
