    Justice Ginsburg Says She Originally Thought Roe v. Wade Was Designed to Limit

    Justice Ginsburg Says She Originally Thought Roe v. Wade Was Designed to Limit 'Populations That We Donít Want to Have Too Many Of'

    In an interview to be published in Sundayís New York Times Magazine, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she thought the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on abortion was predicated on the Supreme Court majority's desire to diminish ďpopulations that we donít want to have too many of.Ē

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's not like she said that she SUPPORTED that rationale at the time. Besides, you forgot that she concluded that statement by saying "And then I realized that my perception of it had been altogether wrong."

    However, that *is* the best effect of abortion IMO. Reducing the birth rate among the poor will help keep down the costs for entitlement programs, reduce crime, protect the environment, and generally improve the quality of life for Americans.

    Which is why there is a lot of truth to the argument that the Pro-life Movement is all about protecting the fetus. Once the fetus becomes a child they have no interest in the government doing anything to support the child.

    I'm sorry you think it's more humane to kill babies then to be against cradle to grave socialism.

    Why don't we just kill the poor, that too would keep down the cost of entitlements.

    You are completely missing what I am saying or blatantly misconstruing what I am saying...not sure which.

    What I am saying is that the pro-life movement is 100% behind protecting the fetus, however as soon as the fetus becomes a child, they are against doing anything to support the child.

    Kandahar, as long as we keep paying poor Mommas more in Welfare entitlements for each child they have, I don't think it is going to quite work that way in actual fact.

    There really needs to be a way of "retiring" Justices who have outlived their effectiveness.
