'Far left radical dead': What right-wingers are saying about Ginsburg’s death
After yesterday’s passing of 87-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, right-wing pundits were quick to paint her as a slaughterer of babies for her defense of Roe v. Wade and other court decisions protecting women’s access to reproductive healthcare.
