RBG: Pregnant Women Are Not “Mothers”

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg clearly didn’t pass Biology 101 given her remarks that pregnant women are not “mothers.” The comment was made following Justice Clarence Thomas’ opinion supporting the Supreme Court’s 7-2 ruling upholding an Indiana abortion law. The measure requires hospitals and other medical facilities to provide dignified cremation or burial services to babies aborted on their premises but blasting them for not explicitly condemning eugenics or sex-selective abortions. Ginsberg specifically took issue with the use of the word “mother,” arguing that “[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother.'” Somehow, though, paternity tests for babies in utero still constitute legal fatherhood. Weird how that works.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has an odd concept of motherhood. According to her, pregnant women are not mothers, particularly pregnant women that terminate their offspring in an abortion.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of an Indiana abortion law requiring medical facilities to provide dignified burials or cremation to children aborted at their establishment. Though conservative Justice Clarence Thomas concurred with the court’s opinion, he argued that his colleagues made a mistake by choosing to forgo ruling on whether or not Indiana could ban abortions for sex-selective or eugenic purposes. It was his use of the word “mother” in his dissent that his fellow colleague Justice Ginsburg took most issue with.

“Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th-century eugenics movement,” Thomas wrote.
