The Sunday New York Times published a recent interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth “Buzzi” Ginsburg. After expressing her annoyance over a 1980 decision that forbids using Medicaid tax dollars for abortions,Justice Ginsburg said this. Quote: “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to then be set up for Medicaid funding for abortion.” End quote.
What is astounding is that a matriarch of modern liberalism was candid about the underlying objective of the abortion movement: to rid society of “undesirables”. Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was an early proponent of this view,called “eugenics.” Her aim was to wipe out the African-American population. Other infamous world figures acted upon similar instincts, using other means to achieve their objectives: concentration camps, mass gassings, so-called ethnic cleansings.
Justice Ginsburg hasn’t yet stated which American populations she would like to see wiped outusing Medicaid taxpayer funded abortions. The New York Times interviewer didn’t ask –or perhaps assumed that New York Times readers already knew.
But Justice Ginsburg’s remarks tell the real story. They ought to dispel for all timeany notion that the abortion movement is about “privacy,” or “choice,” or “freedom”. And it should also tell you why liberals reacted so strongly to my term “feminazi” — it hit way too close to home.
