Opinion: Ruth Bader Ginsburg protected your abortion rights. Be afraid now that she's gone (via latimesopinion)

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a fearless fighter for abortion rights.

noted the extraordinary safety record of abortions and the lack of similar requirements for far more dangerous procedures. She called out the Texas law for the sham it was, writing, “it is beyond rational belief that HB 2 could genuinely protect the health of women, and certain that the law ‘would simply make it more difficult for them to obtain abortions.’”

Hearing earlier this summer of her trip to the hospital for a bile-duct stent cleaning and of the metastatic spread of one of the numerous cancers she had miraculously survived, I thought to myself, well ... she’ll be fine, right? She’ll certainly survive beyond the administration of a president she made little secret of disliking.

Her dying wish was not to be replaced until a new president is installed. There are so many aspects of that wish I hope come to pass for Ginsburg and the rest of us. Read more: Los Angeles Times »

opinion RBG is in hell for allowing the slaughter of millions of babies here on earth. Be afraid of that LA TP Times opinion Now, it's possible babies may live. As they should. Time to preserve their rights. At last. opinion People have never come to supreme court justices for protection. If you don't believe the system, you are out of luck in this country.

opinion Stop with the fear attacks. The system in place would protect the right of states to defend. Fake News! opinion She was a champ, but stop fearing. Talk. opinion Uh...it's infanticide. opinion You mean OUR abortion rights? This is an opinion piece. I hope you are afraid too opinion Be afraid!!!!! I am afraid of the constant media fear-mongering

opinion Never saw the logic (bc it's twisted) that pro lifers are against abortion... but also against contraception. So, pro life isn't about ...making abortion rare/banned? ...making preg planned vs surprise? What's left? Just control of women's bodies? women's self earning power? opinion If Roe vs Wade is overturned abortion will still be legal on a state level.

opinion Fear mongering 👆🏼 opinion opinion Good God! Talk about lying media! Losing R v W does not keep states from providing abortion. All it does is prevent the fed from dictating to states what they must provide. What a bunch of whining crybabies! opinion I feel so much sorry and immensely hurt when people refer to abortion as something normal. If your mother was thinking like that, i don't think this stupide writer will see the light of the day

opinion Why the hell didn't the Dems just pass a Federal law on abortion when they controlled the whole shooting match and codify the RvW decision into law? opinion The media no longer cares to even try and give unbiased reporting. I’m more afraid of that. opinion So now babies will not be sliced and diced?

opinion I would be more afraid of having to stand before God & explain why I helped to allow the murder of babies-Saving a mother from dying or talking about the rape argument is one thing we haven't the time to go into here-Killing the unborn is not a right.-It's an excuse of the left opinion But not the babies 🧐

opinion Be afraid be very afraid you cant abort anymore and you'll have to protect your self more like condoms and plan b unless you medically can't carry or really necessary opinion Abortion rights isnt whole of Feminism or Civil rights.

What role model. opinion She wasn't the only pro-choice jurist in the country. If she really cared about protecting abortion rights, she would've stepped down under Obama.

opinion What you meant to say is Ruth ensured you could legally murder a child in the womb. opinion She made a career of twisting the meaning of the Constitution to suit her own personal agendas. She was an Activist and NOT a good unbiased Judge...those are the facts! opinion 😭😭😭😭

Column: Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death should not eclipse Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s lifeThe world changed, politics roared, America's mood shifted this way and that, and Ginsburg worked, steadily as she had always done, dismantling injustice wherever she could. Thank you for working tirelessly to advance the cause of the underprivileged who often have no voice. God bless you and fly high dear Ruth as you reunite with your beloved Marty 💕🙏 I'm not sure if you're aware of this but The election doesn't matter any more: you now have a captured and overtly partisan supreme court even without a nominee being pushed through. All Trump has to do is challenge and he wins. America's democracy just ended.
