Father O'Connell, who like Father McGarvey was ordained in 1950, has not been in active ministry since 1986, when he pleaded no contest to 26 charges of sexual assault on minors in Rhode Island. Bishop McHugh opened his press conference by empha- sizing that "all sexual abuse, especially sexual abuse of children, is morally evil, gravely harmful and unjust. There is no justification for this behavior nor any reason to tolerate it." He said he would not com- ment on any of the charges against Father McGarvey be- cause they are part of a case See NEWpage 10 Court nominee Ginsburg found niche in sex discrimination By PATRICIA ZAPOR CAtholk; News Service WASHINGTON {CNS} -- Supreme Court nominee Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg started her law career in the 1960s as a legal secretary, later making a name for her- self as a champion of women's rights, arguing five Supreme Court cases over gender-based discrimination. Her advocacy on behalf of women's causes worries lead- ers of the National Right to Life Committee, who said she would invalidate all limits on abortion. President Clinton nomi- nated Mrs. Ginsburg June 14 to replace Justice Byron White, who will step down at the end of the current term in JU00e 6o-y00-old M.. Gins- burg, who is Jewish, has served as a judge of the Washington-based U.S. Cir- cuit Court of Appeals since she was appointedin 1980 by President Jimmy Carter. Criticizing her as a nomi- nee even before the an- nouncement was made offi- cial during a Rose Garden ceremony, Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the Na- tional Right to Life Commit- tee, said Mrs. Ginsburg wrote in 1985 that limitations on abortion are a form of sex dis- crimination. According to National Right to Lifo, Mrs. Ginsburg wrote in the North Carolina Law Review in 1985 that the court went too fast in one step with Roe vs. Wade. But she was only questioning the court's tactical ludgment and legal rationale in its 1973 de- cision legalizing abortion, the committee said. "More importantly, she also argued that the court should have ruled that re- strictions on abortion violate constitutional sex- equality principles," it said. Johnson said Ginsburg's doctrine would invalidate limits such as prohibitions on public funding of abortions, third-trimester abortions, and parental consent laws. A native of Brooklyn, Mrs. Ginsburg graduated from CoT- nell University, attended Har- vard Law and graduated from Columbia University School of Law in 1959. Upon graduation she worked first as a legal secre- tary before going on to be a research assistant at Colm- bia University, then g a teaching job at Rutgors Uni- versity Law School. She later taught at Columbia and headed the Women s Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union. It was from that position that she present oral . ' ments six times to the Supreme Court, during the 1970s, They included challenges of poli- cies for distributing benefits to women serving in the armed forces and to widow- ers whose benefits differed from those of widows. She also successfully challenged state laws exemptin 8 women from jury service upon re ........... quest. While serving on the fed- eral appeals court Mrs. Gins- burg was called a "first-rate : : centrist" candidate for the  i Supreme Court by  Lawyer magUine in 1991, She has wri  opinions on civil rights, eedom of andmtiStou.00d sex discrimination,
