Ginsberg and “populations that we don’t want to have too many of”

In an interview with the NY Times Justice Ginsberg may have just belied some of the liberal’s underlying eugenicist intentions.

Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.

While they would never say the word “eugenics”, it is in their political heritage and this is not the first time someone of note on the left has mentioned birth control as a matter of policy for population control rather than purely as a women’s rights issue.

Ultimately, you can have the government pay for everything for everyone – you just have to figure out how to pay for it. If you eliminate all the people needing a service then the service gets real cheap without having to make tough decisions.
