Ruth Bader Ginsburg wanted the age of consent to be 12 years old. That makes her a pedophile lover & pervert at the same time.

 

Truth and Verification: The post referring to Ruth Bader Ginsburg supporting the lowering the consent age to 12 is not true.

Ginsburg spent much of her legal career as an advocate for gender equality and women's rights, winning many arguments before the Supreme Court.

A Google search for the above quote attributed to Ginsburg did not lead to any evidence she advocated that position.? 

Verdict: False.
