Jessica discussed the recent speech that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave at the University of Chicago in which she discussed the problems with the thinking on Roe vs Wade . Justice Ginsburg expressed misgivings at the time (1973) that the matter was not decided on the human rights of women but rather as a privacy right very much in conjunction with the doctor. Jessica examined that speech and discussed other areas which are impacting women's right to control their bodies. For more information go to rhrealitycheck.org.
