It is a sad day in America when our own appointed officials and judges do not value human life. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg not only supports abortion but also claims that pregnant women are NOT, in fact, mothers.
The liberal justice is standing firm on her statement that a woman who has not yet given birth is not a mother. Therefore, by her logic, women who adopt are not mothers either. Mothers come in all shapes and forms, including being pregnant and growing a human being.
What exactly is a woman when she is with child then, Ginsburg?
In a ruling Tuesday about an Indiana abortion law, Ginsburg criticized fellow Justice Clarence Thomas for referring to women who have abortions as “mothers,” the Washington Times reports.
Thomas, a conservative justice, argued that the court has a duty to consider whether to allow abortions for eugenic purposes, such as a disability or the baby’s gender.
“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,” according to Thomas. “In other contexts, the Court has been zealous in vindicating the rights of people even potentially subjected to race, sex, and disability discrimination.”
Ginsburg disagreed, of course, and went about her pro-abortion rant. “(A) woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother,’ ” she said.
Thomas replied to Ginssburg, stating that her opinion “makes little sense.”
Once a woman is pregnant, she must give birth, no matter how big or small the child may be. By Webster definition, a mother is a female who gives birth. Therefore, the justice has very little ground to argue.
Many years ago, scientists confirmed that a unique, new human life begins at conception. This life is the offspring of a man and woman, their child. So, it does not matter whether a woman feels like she is a mother or wants her baby. It does not matter whether she gives birth to her baby, miscarries or has an abortion, she is a mother. It does not take a lot of research or the ability to understand complex ideas to figure this out.
Ginsburg’s claim denies that there is a relationship between mother and her unborn child, a relationship that even many mothers who have had abortions acknowledge to have been. Her denial does no good for the abortion debate. It just hides the truth from mothers who are considering abortions
As a pregnant woman, or should I say a person with a brain, I agree with Thomas.
