Ginsburg on eugenics

Every once in a while a pro-abortion advocate will let something slip out that betrays their real agenda.
This happened recently in a New York Times interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Talking about abortion, she said:
"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." (emphasis added)

What "populations" is she talking about? In her mind, what is the real goal of unlimited abortion? Reducing "unwanted" populations?

In fact, abortion has been devastating the African-American population in the US. Black women abort at three times the rate of white women. Representing 13% of the general population, black women account for 36% of all abortions. This is a real tragedy.

Although Ginsburg came perilously close to it, she didn't actually say that she wants to reduce the numbers of American blacks. But the policy that she and other abortion proponents have been pushing are bringing that about.

Sr. Marianne Lorraine,
I very much enjoy your blog!
I was especially interested in Justice Ginsburg's remarks. It seems that eugenics has been at the heart of planned widespread contraception and abortion in America. Below is a quote from a website called, about Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.

"Margaret Sanger spoke of sterilizing those she designated as'unfit,' a plan she said would be the 'salvation of American civilization.' And she also spoke of those who were 'irresponsible and reckless,' among whom she included those 'whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers.' She further contended that 'there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.'"

I think your blog hit the nail on the head. I'm glad you highlighted Justice Ginsburg's comments, because many seem unaware of these underlying motives to promote contraception and abortion in our country.

Thank you for evangelizing in this manner - we need to cherish the awesome gift of life God has given us, from conception to natural death, for all humans, not just certain races or ethnicities.

Sr Marianne,
I really enjoy reading your blog. It is very insightful and inspiring. Many people do not seem to understand that abortion is hurting minorities-especially African-Americans-more than any other demographic. The real agenda behind the pro-choice movement is to mandate which lives are more important than others. This can also be said of the rationing measures so common in socialized health care systems and euthanasia. It is so unfortunate and dangerous. Thankfully, this agenda seems to be becoming more and more apparent. Let's hope people listen and act justly through God's love and grace.
