So here’s some good news. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Vader Ginsburg who said she that she though Roe v. Wade would be just perfect for getting rid of “populations that we don’t want to have to many of” doesn’t just want minority babies dead. She wants all of them dead. Whew. I thought she was some kind of racist monster there for a second. Glad she solved that one.
Here’s her original statement:
“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.”
Now, LifeNews is reporting that the same reporter Emily Bazelon has written a follow up article, in which she clarifies those comments with Ginsburg.
“Emily, you know that that line, which you quoted accurately, was vastly misinterpreted,” Ginsbug said. “I was surprised that the court went as far as it did in Roe v. Wade, and I did think that with the Medicaid reimbursement cases down the road that perhaps the court was thinking it did want more women to have access to reproductive choice. At the time, there was a concern about too many people inhabiting our planet. There was an organization called Zero Population Growth.” She continued, “In the press, there were articles about the danger of crowding our planet. So there was at the time of Roe v. Wade considerable concern about overpopulation.”
Bazelon summarizes by saying, “Justice Ginsburg also made it clear today that the issue she had in mind when we spoke in 2009 was concern about population growth among all classes (and races).”
Oooooh. Thank goodness. You see, she doesn’t just want black, brown, or poor babies dead, she thought they all deserved to die. Thank goodness, we learned that our Supreme Court justice doesn’t want babies to die because the color of their skin or because their parent’s economic portfolio. That would have been really bad, huh? She thought Roe would be good for killing babies for Mother Earth.
