In wake of Roe v. Wade ruling, liberals slam late Justice Ruth Baden Ginsburg for not retiring

Some liberals are blaming the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after the court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade 

case that federally protected a woman’s right to an abortion on Friday

Ginsburg notoriously decided to not retire during the Obama administration when she could have been replaced with a liberal justice

only to die at the age of 87 in September 2020 during the Trump administration.

She was replaced by Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who was one of three conservative justices appointed by former President Donald Trump

all three of whom were among the six justices who voted in favor of overturning the half-century-old decision.

If she had retired and been replaced by a liberal justice, the decision to overturn Roe would likely still have passed in a 5-4 vote.

Although Ginsburg was a staunch advocate for women’s constitutional right to an abortion

she was critical of how Roe v. Wade established that right.

Outraged, many liberals took to social media to point their fingers at her for Friday’s decision
