Ginsburg's Partial-Birth Abortion Dissent: Ruthless Feminism
The dissent of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the Supreme Court's Gonzales v. Carhart decision on Wednesday rests upon the sheer ruthlessness of modern feminism. Not a word of concern is spoken in her dissent of the barbaric dismembering of the unborn child that partial-birth abortion entails. The child's "health" is simply not to be mentioned.

Cut through all the pretentious padding and legal mumbo-jumbo and Ginsburg's dissent amounts to this: abortion is the sacred foundation of feminism, and Americans must never touch it; if this means permitting the skulls of unborn children to be crushed, oh well.

"Women it is now acknowledged have the talent, capacity and right 'to participate equally in the economic and social life of the nation,'" she writes, invoking the earlier Casey decision. "Their ability to realize this full potential, the Court recognized, is ultimately connected to 'their ability to control their reproductive lives.'"

In other words, abortion is essential to obliterating differences between the sexes by emancipating women from nature so that they are the same as men ("equality," under liberalism, means making men and women the same not in dignity, but the same in all respects, no matter how irrational the results this understanding of equality produces). And access to abortion is essential to eliminating children as hindrances to careers -- or as Ginsburg says, "equal citzenship stature."

This analysis seems correct to me, and it shows the exceeding wickedness of the act. May God have mercy on all of us for our selfishness.
