Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Kill the Poor

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Justice, let the cat out of the bag when defending a woman's unlimited right to an abortion. She observed, “It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people.” This is not the first time that Justice Ginsburg noted that abortion is helpful in keeping the number of the poor under control.
In a previous interview, she added that Roe v. Wade was intended for population control “particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” As National Review's Kevin Williamson noted, “This is not her first time weighing in on the question of what by any intellectually honest standard must be described as eugenics...She was correct in her assessment of Roe; the co-counsel in that case, Ron Weddington, would later advise President Bill Clinton: 'You can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy, and poor segment of our country,' by making abortifacients cheap and universally available. 'It’s what we all know is true, but we only whisper it.'”
In a recent piece in the Atlantic, it was noted that black babies are five times more likely to be aborted than white babies, and Hispanics are twice as likely to be aborted. Abortion was more than just about a woman's right to choose; it was just another mechanism for the left to control the population of people of color. Anyone who knows the history of the progressive movement would know that eugenics was part of the package before World War II, but Hitler's final solution ended that idea of making that idea public. However, looking at the statistics of who actually gets aborted shows the eugenic quality of abortions. A minority voter must be asking themselves, why do we support a party that doesn’t even want our babies?
For the poor, the left's number one solution to poverty is not economic growth or better education but to abort their future so the state has fewer mouths to care for. Ginsburg's honesty about the role of abortion and the control of the poor population is disturbing since she is but admitting the left's answer to the poor is to abort their future.
