Justice Ginsburg: "I thought Roe Was to Rid Undesirables"

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Gidsburg has told The New York Times that she was under the impression that legalizing abortion with the 1973 Roe v. Wade case was about eliminating undesirable members of the population.
Maybe this is a normal thought pattern for some, but frankly, it's shocking to some of us.
The interview is scheduled to be published Sunday in The New York Times Magazine.
The entire interview, with Emily Bazeon, is titled, "The Place of Women on the Court," and is available on-line now.
On page 4 of the interview, as it is posted on-line, Ginsburg tells Bazelon, "Frankly, I had thought 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."
This interview is in depth and gives you a striking comparison between the far left, secularist world view and the world view of people of faith and traditional values.
President George W. Bush gave us Roberts and Alito.
Candidate Obama said his Supreme Court nominees would be more like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
There is hope, however it will likely not show itself in this administration.
