While the liberal establishment and DC’s Republican bootlickers wail and gnash their teeth over the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I won’t be among the
I wish death on no one, but I don’t consider Ruth Bader Ginsburg to be an “icon.” Only if icons are now painted to commemorate a thoroughly evil person would Ginsburg – whose jurisprudence led to the death of millions of unborn children – deserve such hagiography.
As the inimitable Kurt Schlichter put it in a January 2019 column for Townhall:
It’s not her legal legacy, which is an undistinguished mish-mash of liberal goo once you get past some decent work on women’s rights a half century ago. Her legendary status is partly that she’s a leftist, and partly that she’s so tough. She’s become a secular saint to for libs, proving once again that when you reject religion you have to fill up your spiritual void with something.
And so Justice Ginsburg filled the spiritual void of women on the Left with the blood sacrifice of abortion.
Out of Ginsburg’s numerous opinions and dicta enshrining the killing of children as a constitutional right has grown a movement to celebrate or “shout your abortion.” Because in Ginsburg’s world abortion was not the taking of human life, it is a perfectly normal “choice.”
“It is essential to woman’s equality with man that she be the decisionmaker, that her choice be controlling,” Ginsburg told Senators during her four-day confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. “If you impose restraints that impede her choice, you are disadvantaging her because of her sex.”
And as the vile Far Left abortion website The Lily said, Justice Ginsburg is not dead:
You can see glimpses of her in their eyes as they [abortion providers] remind patients that despite attempts by GOP lawmakers to use a public health crisis to stifle abortion access, abortion providers will continue to show up for them. Someone will always be there.
You can talk to her when you call the National Network of Abortion Funds to find a clinic that provides abortion care in your area. You will hear the echoes of her defiant voice — the voice of a history-making giant — in the careful instructions provided by an abortion funds employee telling you where to go, what to expect and how you can procure abortion funds, transportation or child care, should you need it.
You’ll feel her as you are escorted toward the doors of a clinic by a stranger in a brightly colored vest holding an even more brightly colored umbrella.
And said The Lily, Justice Ginsburg is the nurse practitioner who uses the correct pronouns when preparing a trans man for his surgical abortion at 11 weeks gestation.
Justice Ginsburg is often lauded as a fighter for equal rights, but that was a lie. And the truth will out.
As George Weigel wrote in an article for the Ethics & Public Policy Center, sometimes, the veil slips:
It certainly did in a recent New York Times Magazine interview with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There, in the course of relating her surprise at the Court’s 1980 decision upholding the Hyde Amendment (which banned federal funding for abortion), Justice Ginsburg had the following to say about legal history, social policy, and political surprises: “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 of abortion.” (emphasis mine)
Turn that phrase over in your mind — “populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” Rather odd, wouldn’t you say — odd in itself, and odd in light of such 20th century horrors as the Holocaust and the Ukrainian terror famine, justified by their perpetrators on precisely such grounds? Then there is Justice Ginsburg’s rationale for Roe vs. Wade and its judicially created license to abortion-on-demand: Roe was intended to clear the legal path to federal funding of abortions for poor — read “black” — people, who clearly loom large among those “populations we don’t want to have too many of.”
Liberals will lionize Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a crusader for “equal rights,” but the truth is what she fought for was the right to rid the country of those she and the other members of the liberal sisterhood consider to be populations that we don’t want to have too many of.
So, when Ruth Bader Ginsburg is laid to rest, I won’t mourn or celebrate, but I will pray that she receives the reward in the afterlife that her record in the here and now merits.
