But the larger problem is the credence subsequently given to ACOG's statement by courts, including the Supreme Court. Judges have put too much faith in statements from scientific organizations. This credulity must stop....
All of us should be embarrassed that a sentence written by a White House aide now stands enshrined in the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court, erroneously credited with scientific authorship and rigor. Kagan should be most chastened of all. She fooled the nation's highest judges. As one of them, she had better make sure they aren't fooled again.
That is very good news about Justice Kennedy. Obama has already picked two radicals, and there is every reason to believe he'd make it three if he could. Justice Kennedy has been leaning more to the conservative side recently.Posted by: Joanne at July 6, 2010 3:03 PM
