If you're a pregnant lady but you haven't given birth yet, you're not a mom according to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Sorry, pregnant lady, not today.
On Tuesday the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of an abortion law in Indiana that requires medical facilities to provide dignified burials or cremation to children aborted at their establishment.
Justice Clarence Thomas agreed with the court's opinion but argued that his colleagues mistakenly chose to forgo ruling on whether or not Indiana could ban abortions for sex-selective or eugenic purposes.
And that's when RBG got triggered.
Thomas used the word "mother" and Justice Ginsburg wasn't pleased.
Justice Ginsburg wrote, "(A) woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother."
Wow. Just wow.
Ginsburg's statement is both unscientific and illogical. Of course a pregnant lady is a mother. If, for example, a pregnant lady is murdered, the suspect is charged with taking two lives, not one.
In the meantime, the Supreme Court's decision to avoid ruling on the race & sex-selective abortions suggests there will be a challenge to Roe v. Wade in the near future.
