The executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union apologized for a tweet that edited out women of a pro-abortion quote from late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to make it more transgender inclusive.
The ACLU was ridiculed and mocked on social media after it posted the mutilated quote on its Twitter account last week.
Executive director Anthony Romero told the New York Times in an interview Monday that the organization regretted sending out the tweet.
“We won’t be altering people’s quotes,” Romero said. “It was a mistake among the digital team. Changing quotes is not something we ever did.”
He went on to defend the political motivation behind the edited quote by affirming that transgender people also need the right to abortions.
With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, we lost a champion for abortion and gender equality. And on the anniversary of her death, the fight to protect abortion access is more urgent than ever. pic.twitter.com/vIKadIHouN
