Obama court nominee: Abortion necessary to free women from “conscription to maternity;” says HHS mandate necessary to protect women from becoming “presumptive breeders;” celebrating motherhood creates a “self-fulfilling cycle of discrimination”

President Obama has nominated Cornelia "Nina" Pillard, a Georgetown law professor, to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, who once wrote that abortion is necessary to help "free women from historically routine conscription into maternity."

In her writings she also slams anyone who opposes the HHS contraception mandate as "reinforce[ing] broader patterns of discrimination against women as a class of presumptive breeders."
She wrote a 2011 paper, "Against the New Maternalism," which argues that by celebrating motherhood, society is creating a "self-fulfilling cycle of discrimination." Those ideas bleed into Pillard's, extreme pro-abortion views, which suggest that technology is somehow manipulating Americans to consider the personhood of the unborn. In one of her most jaw-dropping statements, the president's nominee even criticizes the ultrasound. She believes it manufactures "deceptive images of fetus-as-autonomous-being that the anti-choice movement has popularized since the advent of amniocentesis."

As crazy and outrageous as her other comments are, this one is a denial of basic biology! She actually rejects modern science on human development because it conflicts with her hard-core ideology. Pillard is fiercely opposed to abstinence education and has said publicly she would declare it unconstitutional. In "Our Other Reproductive Choices," She argues that abstinence-only curriculum is "permeated with stereotyped messages and sex-based double standards" which, in her mind, makes it "vulnerable to an equal protection challenge."
