Ginsburg’s unedited remarks — made in 1993 before the Senate Judiciary Committee during her confirmation hearings to the Supreme Court — were as follows: “The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. When Government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for her own choices” [emphasis added].
The ACLU edited Ginsburg’s quote: “The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a [person’s] life, to [their] well-being a dignity. … When the government controls that decision for [people], [they] are being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for [their] own choices” [emphasis added].
In a subsequent tweet, the ACLU omitted any mention of women, including a reference to “a patient getting an abortion.”
The ACLU’s decision to remove feminine pronouns in the context of pregnancy and abortion complies with a neo-Marxist rejection of sexual dimorphism as a biological feature of humanity. Assorted Democrats and the broader left frame sex as a social construct subject to change and choice where men can decide to be women and vice versa.
