Justice Ginsburg on Roe v. Wade Meaning

It is a bit strange to hear a sitting Supreme Court Justice actually say what she thinks. From the New Ledger and The Smoking Argus Daily in an interview by Emily Bazelon of the “New York Times Sunday Magazine”:
Frankly I had thought that 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 is core to the liberal history of promoting the 'doctrine' of eugenics.

Eugenics is based on the goal of improving the qualities of the humans by discouraging reproduction by genetically defective people and encouraging reproduction by those with desirable traits, you know, like Hitler.

Guess we had better add Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's name to the list of leading Eugenicists.

Ginsburg was not quoting "her" view, but the view many had at the time. Abortion hits all people in all faiths in all political views.
