But not in a mean, crazy, scary Nazi Eugenics way, you understand

Roe v. Wade was supposed to eliminate "unwanted" populations.

"Reproductive choice has to be straightened out," said Ginsburg, lamenting the fact that only women "of means" can easily access abortion.

"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," Ginsburg told Emily Bazelon of the New York Times.

Well, the logic simply follows doesn't it? I mean if the baby is "unwanted" by the mother, why shouldn't the mother be unwanted by, shall we say, her betters?

What's the diff?
