". . .For from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.
A good person brings forth good out of a store of goodness, but an evil person brings forth evil out of a store of evil. "
Matthew 12: 34-35
This verse struck me as the explanation of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's remarks about her misunderstanding of the purpose of Roe v Wade in a New York Times interview.
"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."
"Concern about population growth that we don't want to have too many of. "
Hmm. . .would that be minorities, the poor, and the handicapped?
Does Justice Ginsburg realize who else shares these views?
It seems that pro-aborts, like Ginsburg, regardless of their impeccable ACLU credentials, are nothing more than racists at heart. They have a name for this: eugenics.
The Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan were into creating a master race; white, non-Jew, non-Catholic.
Maragaret Sanger was an important figure in this movement to limit the growth in populations of undesirables. Her Birth Control League eventually grew into the world's largest purveyors of abortion; Planned Parenthood. She meant to strenthen white American society by eliminating blacks, immigrants, the "feeble minded", and those who opposed birth control (Catholics).
Description of "The Negro Project" from Maragret Sanger:
"It was in 1939 that Sanger's larger vision for dealing with the reproductive practices of black Americans emerged. After the January 1939 merger of her Clinical Research Bureau and the ABCL to form the Birth Control Federation of America, Dr. Clarence J. Gamble was selected to become the BCFA regional director for the South. Dr. Gamble, of the soap-manufacturing Procter and Gamble company, was no newcomer to Sanger's organization. He had previously served as director at large to the predecessor ABCL.Gamble lost no time and drew up a memorandum in November 1939 entitled "Suggestion for Negro Project."
Acknowledging that black leaders might regard birth control as an extermination plot, he suggested that black leaders be place in positions where it would appear that they were in charge, as it was at an Atlanta conference.It is evident from the rest of the memo that Gamble conceived the project almost as a traveling road show. A charismatic black minister was to start a revival, with "contributions" to come from other local cooperating ministers. A "colored nurse" would follow, supported by a subsidized "colored doctor." Gamble even suggested that music might be a useful lure to bring the prospects to a meeting.Sanger answered Gamble on Dec. 10. 1939, agreeing with the assessment. She wrote: "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
from Black Genocide
What's the connection to Ginsburg? If you seek to rid the world of 'undesirables', whether by birth control or abortion, you'd better be in the room when the list of desirables is drawn up.
Ginsburg, being a Jew, was on Margaret Sanger's hit list.
Now she mouths their platitudes in interviews.
"Sanger espoused the thinking of eugenicists -- similar to Darwin's "survival of the fittest" -- but related the concept to human society, saying the genetic makeup of the poor, and minorities, for example, was inferior. Pivot of Civilization, by Margaret Sanger, 1922, p. 80"
Diane Dew has some more quotes from Sanger.
The Susan B Anthony List has this to say:
"In other words, Justice Ginsburg felt the sanctioning of government-funded abortion was appropriate as a population-control measure. It’s appalling to realize that these comments aren’t from a eugenicist like Margaret Sanger, but from a sitting Supreme Court Justice.
Her comments paint a picture of the real impact the U.S. Supreme Court has on the lives of the most innocent among us, whether that be the unborn or other “undesirables” in society.
On Monday, the U.S. Senate will begin the confirmation process for President Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
Given what we know about Sonia Sotomayor’s own judicial philosophy, including her support of policymaking from the bench, we must oppose her appointment to the United States Supreme Court. "
