Many times over the fifteen years weâ€™ve been battling Planned Parenthood and other allied social engineers, we have charged that the “Sanger Vision” is alive and driving the pro-abortion movement. And each time we are not-so-politely rebuffed and ridiculed by the Abortion Lobby: Sanger may have advocated the purification of the human race through birth control, abortion and forced sterilization â€“ but those thoughts have long been removed from our thoughts, they regularly protest. Please ignore the fact that we target blacks, Hispanics and the poor with our services with great success.
Despite such blather, truth is a powerful thing; it manages to seep out beneath the most tightly locked doors.
In an astonishing interview with the New York Times Magazine, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg boldly admits that she has always understood Roe v. Wade as a mechanism for ensuring that â€œpopulations we donâ€™t want to have too many ofâ€ would be reduced through the execution of their undesirable offspring. She goes on to bemoan the fact that her colleagues in the federal bench have blocked efforts to provide tax-payer funding of abortions for these â€œundesirableâ€ peoples.
As we watch the opening hearings on Judge Sotomayorâ€™s confirmation to the Supreme Court, it is well for the nation to take due note of Ginsburgâ€™s comments. It is absolutely appalling that a sitting justice of the U.S. Supreme Court could publicly proclaim such views and remain a member of the bench; it is now beyond debate that she should never have been confirmed in the first place. Nominated by President Clinton, Ginsburg sailed through her confirmation â€“ despite a long and sordid history of working for organizations like the ACLU.
Will Sotomayor be allowed to join Ginsburg on the court without careful scrutiny of her dark prejudices? Does she share Ginsburgâ€™s belief that there are various classes of people â€“ some worthy of survival, and others which should be â€œweeded outâ€?
Given the fact that Sotomayor shares Ginsburgâ€™s commitment to abortion â€œrightsâ€ and judicial activism, these are legitimate and crucial questions which ought preoccupy members of the United States Senate these summer weeks.
Is there a hero in the Senate willing to confront Judge Sotomayor and pull the truth out of her?
