Justice Ginsburg: Pregnant Women Are Not 'Mothers'

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has an odd concept of motherhood. According to her, pregnant women are not mothers, particularly pregnant women that terminate their offspring in an abortion.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of an Indiana abortion law requiring medical facilities to provide dignified burials or cremation to children aborted at their establishment. Though conservative Justice Clarence Thomas concurred with the court's opinion, he argued that his colleagues made a mistake by choosing to forgo ruling on whether or not Indiana could ban abortions for sex-selective or eugenic purposes. It was his use of the word "mother" in his dissent that his fellow colleague Justice Ginsburg took most issue with.
"Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th-century eugenics movement," Thomas wrote. "In other contexts, the Court has been zealous in vindicating the rights of people even potentially subjected to race, sex, and disability discrimination."
Justice Ginsburg took issue: "(A) woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother,’" she wrote, according to LifeNews.
Ginsburg added that Thomas' opinion carried "more heat than light," prompting her colleague to say her opinion "makes little sense."

  1. Pregnant Women Are Not 'Mothers'

    It appears this is not a true statement in the third trimester.

    "While in womb, babies begin learning language from their mothers."

    Note to all the children/human hating SC "justices". The baby is learning and the mother is inadvertently teaching. A lot of mother/daughter HUMAN interaction here. Someone eighty years of age has to try awful hard not to SEE this.
