Ruth Bader Ginsburg Doesn’t Seem To Understand Real “Women’s Equality”

Biographical accounts of famous figures are a popular theme for movies.

After all, we are usually interested in how circumstances and experiences have shaped people who live in the public eye – from historical figures to sports heroes to celebrities.

Now a movie celebrating American icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg is drawing Americans to the box office, but it is worth noting that not all of her accomplishments should be applauded.

On The Basis Of Sex” was recently released, celebrating the history and accomplishments of a powerful Supreme Court Justice.

Ginsburg is one of the few women who has served on the United States Supreme Court, appointed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1993.

As only the second woman to ever be appointed to the High Court, and currently its oldest member, Ginsburg has been part of many important decisions in our nation’s history in recent decades.

Ginsburg attended Harvard Law School and then Columbia Law School, but hit many roadblocks on her journey to find a high-level career in the legal – because she was a woman at a time when women typically didn’t have powerful careers.

She was – and is – considered fierce and independent, raised to believe that women can accomplish anything.

In this regard, she paved the way for women’s equality in the workplace, from pay to position.

But although she is highly respected by many for her intelligence and perseverance, it can be said that her goal to advance all causes relating to women’s rights took a wrong turn along the way.

By 1973 – ironically the same year as the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision – Ginsburg had worked her way up to being General Counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union.

Here, it seems, her liberal views took hold – and took over – driving the trajectory of her career for decades to come.

Perhaps it was her time working for the ACLU combined with changing political climates in the early 80s that reinforced her views, but one thing is clear.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is radically liberal in her views of some of the most important issues affecting traditional families, and the women who are at the heart of them.

Her quest for equal rights for women has become a quest for women’s “reproductive rights,” code words for abortion-on-demand.

Ginsburg seems to contradict herself when she claims that her greatest mission is to protect women and boost their skills, confidence, and place in society.

But with her wholehearted assertion that abortion should be protected, she fails to see the damage this horrific precedent has set.

The legal slaughter of the unborn has wiped out the potential of millions and millions of human lives – many of them little girls who deserved a chance to experience the goals or achievements that Ginsburg wants for all women.

In fact, she ties women’s equality to reproductive “freedom,” as if to say women can never be free and independent if they are tied down with children they didn’t expect to have.

Ginsburg once stated in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that “there can never be a woman of means without choice.”

Ginsburg states she was “surprised” that the court upheld the Hyde Amendment in 1980, preventing Medicaid funding for abortions.

Ginsburg states in the interview,

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. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion.”

She discussed the need for abortion-on-demand for poor women, and therefore the necessity of government funds to pay for abortion, because it would cause “growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of” – the poor and minorities.

In other words, eradicate the lives of innocent children because they may grow up in less-than-ideal financial circumstances.

One of Ginsburg’s most famous quotes is, “The basic thing is that the government has no business making that choice for a woman.”

She is against any court-imposed restrictions on abortion, such as waiting periods, and that being able to stop a pregnancy “very early is significant.”

When Justice Anthony Kennedy discussed in a later related case that women would regret having abortions and should be “shielded from the specifics of what they’d done,” Ginsburg commented, “The poor little woman, to regret the choice that she made.”

In this, she purposely meant to tie unrestricted abortion rights to the notion that a powerful and intelligent woman would not make a decision she didn’t mean to make.

In a 2007 case, Ginsburg was in the minority in a decision to uphold restrictions of partial-birth abortion, opposing the argument that the procedure was not safe for women.

Of course, no thought was apparently given to the fact that unborn babies are capable of feeling pain, and that partial-birth abortion would traumatize the mother for a lifetime.

Besides being a staunch abortion advocate on our nation’s highest court bench, Ginsburg remains true to her ACLU roots as a radical defender of LGBT rights.

In fact, she is the first Supreme Court Justice to preside over a same-sex “wedding,” when she married Kennedy Center President Michael Kaiser and his partner in 2013.

Before the Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage, she said that “it would not take a large adjustment” for the country to accept and normalize it.

Sadly, in that case, she may be right.

The traditional values that our nation were founded on are crumbling.  Women and children are irreparably harmed by abortion that Ginsburg says should always remain a human right for women.

The traditional family is scorned as homosexuality and transgenderism take hold as being normal.

And despite her life’s mission to advocate and advance the role of women, the irony is, she fails to see how the destruction of the family through legalized abortion and homosexual marriage are damaging generations of women to come.

There is no dispute that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an American icon – a strong and intelligent force that thousands of young women and girls look up to.

But sadly, the traits that have made her so endearing to some are helping to destroy the moral foundation of our nation.

Despite failing health and age, Ginsburg says she has no plans to retire from the High Court.

She wants to continue to be a role model for women, while robbing portions of the next generation of life and crushing pro-family values under her heel.
