Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been an abortion zealot her entire life, and her extreme position once again showed itself with an attack on fellow SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas.
The high court upheld the fetal disposition law of Indiana which mandated that fetal remains from abortions must be buried or cremated. SCOTUS determined that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals had “clearly erred” in their decision to overturn the law.
While that may be a victory for life, the ruling simultaneously allowed the overturning of an Indiana law preventing abortions on the basis of race, gender, or the genetic abnormality of the baby.
In writing his opinion, Thomas said plainly: “This statute makes it illegal for an abortion provider to perform an abortion in Indiana when the provider knows that the mother is seeking the abortion solely because of the child’s race, sex, diagnosis of Down syndrome, disability, or related characteristics.”
Although Thomas concluded by saying “the Court declines to wade into these issues today” and joined the majority opinion of the Court, the abortion zealot Ginsburg objected strongly to Thomas’ characterization of a pregnant woman as a “mother.”
Ginsburg wrote: “A woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother.'”
She opposed the first half of the decision, arguing on technical grounds to allow the destruction of fetal tissues without any sanctity or respect for the remains.
“I would not summarily reverse a judgment when application of the proper standard would likely yield restoration of the judgment,” she wrote.
“It is ‘a waste of th[e] [C]ourt’s resources’ to take up a case simply to say we are bound by a party’s ‘strategic litigation choice’ to invoke rational-basis review alone, but ‘everything might be different’ under the close review instructed by the Court’s precedent,” Ginsburg wrote in her conclusion.
The far-left American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is in Ginsburg’s corner, as they argued the case on behalf of Planned Parenthood.
“The Court’s decision on the provision of the law pertaining to the disposition of fetal tissue may have been struck down had it been reviewed – as subsequent laws in other states have been – based on whether it poses an undue burden on a woman’s right to have an abortion,” said Ken Falk, legal director of the ACLU of Indiana, in a statement. “We will continue to fight to ensure Hoosiers have safe access to abortion.”
The Students for Life of America (SFLA) are partially happy with the decision, but believe it should have went further.
“The Justices got it right that aborted infants need to be buried and cremated respectfully as they are human beings, not trash, but it’s tragic they didn’t see their humanity when they still have a chance at life,” SFLA President Kristan Hawkins said in public statement.
“Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby are probably furious right now about the time and expense now required of them to treat those infants with dignity, but this is long overdue and should be required nationwide,” she added.
Abortion zealots like Ginsburg will never pushing for abortion-on-demand without any limits. With states like Missouri, Alabama, and Georgia passing strong abortion restrictions, they are only growing more unhinged in their push to facilitate the murder of babies in the womb.
