Inclusive pronouns have their place in the English language, but using them in place of actually used gender-specific nouns in a quote just is not Kosher.
The American Civil Liberties Union is learning that the hard way. The left-wing organization took literary liberty with a quote from the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and changed the meaning of the sentence.
The American Civil Liberties Union is being ripped for a woke tribute to late women’s rights champion Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — in which they changed her words to erase her use of “woman,” “she” and “her.”
“The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a [person’s] life, to [their] well-being and dignity,” the altered quote read, hiding Ginsburg’s original use of “woman” and “her.”
“When the government controls that decision for [people], [they are] being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for [their] own choices,” the ACLU posted, again hiding “her” and “she.”
While any man in a pregnancy situation is responsible just as much as the woman for an unborn child’s existence, the reality is that it is the woman who carries the child, and gives birth. The ultimate choice, good or bad, moral or immoral, legal or illicit belongs to the woman, not the entire human race.
With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, we lost a champion for abortion and gender equality. And on the anniversary of her death, the fight to protect abortion access is more urgent than ever. pic.twitter.com/vIKadIHouN

Mrs. Ginsburg would be the first liberal to hold that to be true as an absolute.
The ACLU got ripped to shreds from their own for that alteration.
“She would turn in her grave to see you erasing the women whose oppression she fought all her Life,” someone else insisted.
“YOU MISS HER? RESPECT HER MEMORY THEN,” someone tweeted, sharing Ginsburg’s original quote, while another person asked, “Then why did you censor her?”
Changing pronouns isn’t exactly censorship. At the same time, at least the ACLU is not getting away with this.
