As if I have not had enough punches to the gut from politics today I read this admission of what abortion is really all about. It comes from Justice Ginsburg of the Supreme Court. I hope it spreads like wildfire. I want her to be asked specifically which "populations" she was referring to.

From World Net Daily

In an astonishing admission, U.S. Supreme Court
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she was under the impression that legalizing abortion with the 1973 Roe. v. Wade case would eliminate undesirable members of the populace, or as she put it "populations that we don't want to have too many of."


Question: 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?

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.

How about we reduce the population of the irresponsible parents that that created "the unwanted" of which Bader-Ginsberg speaks.

...and no I don't mean blowing up abortion clincs. People should not get biznizzy unless they are willing to deal with the results. We have three wonderful results.
