The Purpose of Abortion?

Reduce the population of unwanted persons in the USA. So suggests Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg.

Here’s a transcript of that portion of the Times' interview:

Q. 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. 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 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.”

Justice Ginsburg assumed that abortion was to kill off as many unwanted minorities as possible and yet, despite this assumption, she strongly promoted abortion rights as the counsel for Planned Parenthood.

That is callous.

Not to judge, but this is seems to be at least callous. More to the point for me, it shows underscores the unfortunate disregard or unfamiliarity with Truth, that one might hope is present in any judge. Happy to expound or flesh out my thoughts on this, but 'nuff for now ... to emotional upon reading this to be coherent.

Much love and blessings!
Peace and All Good

Can you imagine the press allowing anyone else to get by with suggesting they agree with killing unborn minorities? Ginsburg has essentially said she thought abortion was intended to eliminate riff raff in America and she was happy about it. WOW!
