VH1 Trailblazer Honors 2018 The leader of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) apologized Monday night for honoring the one-year anniversary of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing by removing references to women in a quote about women and abortion. The alteration appears to have been a bizarre attempt at making the late justice’s words more inclusive.
“We won’t be altering people’s quotes,” Anthony Romero, executive director of the ACLU, told The New York Times on Monday evening. “It was a mistake among the digital team. Changing quotes is not something we ever did.”
Last week, the organization decided to tweet an altered version of the quote and received intense backlash for it.
The original quote, which the ACLU was fine repeating on its website in the original last year — reads: “The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. … When […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
