When the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg was announced on September 18, one of the more repeated parts of her death narrative was that she wished her successor be picked by the next president.
Considering the lead most honest observers of American politics believe President Donald Trump has over his 2020 presidential race opponent Former Vice President Joe Biden, that’s going to be a wait of a number of years. Democrats do appear willing to risk the wait, though.
The main reason almost everyone agrees the Democrats want to stall replacing Bader-Ginsburg on the court is the 1973 landmark decision known as Roe vs. Wade that doomed tens of millions of pre-born children to death in a culture where the value of life can be shaky when a new life is inconvenient for any reason.
The procedure that makes women “unpregnant” is called abortion, and maintaining its legality, if not social acceptance – tenuous at best at any time in history – which legality fosters, is the ultimate goal of the left and the Democrats. This entire premise hinges on Roe vs. Wade remaining intact.
“One thing that conspicuously distinguishes women from men is that only women become pregnant. And if you subject a woman to disadvantageous treatment on the basis of her pregnant status, which was what was happening to Captain Struck, you would be denying her equal treatment under the law.”
She continued, “The argument was it’s her right to decide, either way, her right to decide whether or not to bear a child … This is something central to a woman’s life, to her dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. And when the government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a full adult human responsible for her own choices.”
Of course, this never seems to apply to the idea of self-restraint when it comes to the activity that produces children, but no one ever wants to talk about that.
And the children who die in the procedure, unlike Mrs. Ginsburg, don’t get dying wishes.
They don’t know they are about to die.
