WASHINGTON, March 19, 2004 ( – Thirteen Republican members of congress have written to urge Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to withdraw from rulings involving abortion. The congressmen argue that her association with the Pro-Abortion National Organization of Women Legal Defense and Education Fund disqualifies her as an impartial arbiter in such decisions.

The letter expressed grave concern over her endorsement of the feminist NOW movement. Her involvement extends to her establishment of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Distinguished Lecture Series. “As legislators, we believe your actions call into question your ability to rule with impartiality on any case involving abortion,” the congressmen wrote.
