Justice Ginsburg: abortion was for babies "that we don't want to have too many of"



Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a New York Times interview in 2009:

[Question by reporter]: 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?
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. [emphasis mine]

The McRae case was decided in 1980. So for at least seven years after Roe v. Wade, future Justice Ginsburg was untroubled by her knowledge that abortion was a strategy for eliminating certain kinds of people.

In case you were wondering what Ginsburg was doing in the 1970's, in 1972 she co-founded the Women's Rights Project at the ACLU. In 1973, she became the ACLU's General Counsel, where she remained until she was appointed to the federal bench in 1980.

During the time she was the ACLU's General Counsel, by her own admission, she believed that the purpose for Roe vrs Wade-- which she passionately supported and still supports-- was to eliminate certain kinds of people by abortion.

What kind of people, pray tell, did Ginsburg have in mind? (see above)

Since 1973, black children have been aborted at a rate twice that of whites. Planned Parenthood preferentially sites their abortion mills in minority neighborhoods, and PP accepts contributions designated to prevent the birth of black babies. From a telephone sting by Lila Rose's Live Action:

The donor and a representative of New Mexico Planned Parenthood were recorded as saying:

Donor: "I really face trouble with affirmative action. I don't want my kids to be disadvantaged ..."

Planned Parenthood representative: "Yeah."

Donor: "... against blacks in college. The less black kids out there the better."

Planned Parenthood representative: "Yeah, yeah, it's a strange time to be sure."
Rose claimed that Planned Parenthood development officials in all seven states that her group contacted gave similar responses and were encouraging donations that were limited to funding only abortions for black women.
A spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood wrote FOX News that the group questioned the “authenticity of elements of these edited tapes” and added that Planned Parenthood had expanded its employee training program so that employees understand that “our organization helps all individuals — regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation.”
'Expanding the training program' is an admission of the authenticity of the tapes.

Bottom line:

Justice Ginsburg admits that she knew for years that the abortion movement is motivated by desire to limit 'population growth' of blacks, and remained silent.

  1. The abortion debate in this country really boils down to this question: Should we continue to pursue a policy of racist baby-killing, or should we change course? It's that simple. For it or against it. Make a decision.

    2. So Trish, that’s what abortion boils down to? Really? So, if it could be shown that there was no racist component to abortion you would think it’s ok? What you and Egnor are actually doing is shamelessly playing the race card against abortion. With all the subtle racist crap that Egnor pedals without a peep of protest from you, this sudden concern for the black population reeks of hypocrisy.

    3. You're being disingenuous, Trish.

      If abortion were race-neutral in this country, you'd still be opposed to it. You would just come up with a different reason than racism.

      So no, the abortion debate does not boil down to racist baby-killing. You surely know that and you are lying about it.

    11. "So, if it could be shown that there was no racist component to abortion you would think it’s ok?"

      Well, first if all, you can't show that it isn't racist. But even if you could, it would still be baby-killing. Nonracist baby-killing is nearly as bad.

      "If abortion were race-neutral in this country, you'd still be opposed to it. You would just come up with a different reason than racism."

      Yes, I would still be opposed to it. I wouldn't have to "come up with" a reason either. The fact that kids are dying is good enough.

      Trish, Tootles has a problem with complicated thoughts. It's difficult for him to comprehend that a thing can be both evil and racist.

      And, of course, abortion is racist by the very definition of Holder's DoJ, which as a matter of policy defines "racist" as disparate impact; i.e., a statistical "imbalance" disfavoring a certain privileged and identifiable group(s).

    14. Or maybe I can see through the silly shenanigans the Right employs. They want to paint abortion as racist just to score points against abortion. But Trish went even further out on a limb, suggesting it all boils down to racism. It's all about killing black babies, you see.

      Well it ain't and Trish knows it ain't. She has acknowledged that much. So she's deliberately mischaracterizing what the abortion debate is about.

      And there is a disparate impact in abortion. According to Progressive legal theorists, that means it is de facto racist, just like bank loans, incarceration rates, and public school disciplinary practices, to name just a few.

    18. Gramps, you're a partisan defending one of your own. She made this statement:

      "The abortion debate in this country really boils down to this question: Should we continue to pursue a policy of racist baby-killing, or should we change course? It's that simple."

      It is clear as day to anyone that the abortion debate in this country does NOT boil down to his question. When I asked Trish to confirm that she would continue to oppose abortion even if abortion stats were uniform across races, she affirmed it. So she knows full well that the debate has nothing to do with race and has everything to do with a woman's choice. So yes, she deliberately misrepresented what the debate is about.

      And all you can do about this is spin. Don't get dizzy or you'll throw up. Your nurse will not be pleased.

    19. Boggs, apparently you’re not familiar with the idiom “boils down to”. It means “to be reduced to its essentials”. Trish said the abortion debate boils down to a “policy of racist baby killing” not a policy of baby killing, but racist baby killing. Understand?

      I don’t think Trish is lying, she’s just being sloppy in hear eagerness to join in playing the race card. It’s not often that you guys have an opportunity to look like you actually support minorities.

    Ginsberg admits no such thing. She refers to "populations that we don’t want to have too many of", which you translated into "blacks". Perhaps she meant "racist Catholic brain surgeons", or "poorly educated people", or whatever.

    It's funny how the usual racists commentators here, who wouldn't piss on a black person if she were on fire, suddenly are so concerned about protecting the poor black folks from the evil abortionists.

    2. Where did I say or imply that "people were born poorly educated and that by eliminating them through abortion we could improve the overall intelligence of society"? Hint: nowhere.

      However, given the low upward social mobility in the US, people born from poor parents tend to stay poor themselves, so there is that positive correlation.

    Trog: "Ginsberg admits no such thing"

    Right. She probably meant future welders. Or catholic neurosurgeons. Lawyers, perhaps? Constitutional lawers?

    The problem, of course, is that you just can't predict who you're eliminating if the criteria aren't demographic, genetic, or otherwise obvious. You could abort all babies of Mexican immigrants. Or all babies with black mothers. Or poor mothers. But you can't, for example, abort all internet trolls. You just can't tell who will end up in that category.

    The choices are limited. Pick one, Trog.

    [A]bortion has taken 17 million African American lives since 1973... The abortion movement has targeted minorities since its inception. There is no greater step one can take to oppose racism today than to oppose the expansion of abortion..."
    --- Dr Alveda King (niece, MLK)

    But Dr King's niece is just one voice among many.

    Trog is more ideologically sympatico with Dr Kermit Gosnell.

    There are views on both sides!

      Progressives have a problem with protecting civil liberties; conservatives want to be able to decide what they eat for lunch, whether to take the bus, and be able to pray to God and participate in government. The ACLU does, sometimes, try to force them to obey the Progressives and stop them from exercising their civil liberties.

      Foreign trolls, on the other hand, care little for civil liberties or the Constitution and are mainly interested in living off money confiscated from conservatives and "redistributed" to them. Check your privilege, trolls.

  8. If you actually look at abortion statistics you will see that abortion among the poor has been going up dramatically. It’s only because black women are far more likely to be poor that white women that this racial disparity in abortion exists in the first place. If anything, your twisting of the statistics to selectively attack abortion in the black community is yet another indication of your racism. Poor Black women have a hard enough time gaining access to reproductive healthcare without racial conspiracy theories designed to make it even harder.
