More than a decade ago, Elena Kagan manipulated expert medical evidence submitted to the Supreme Court. What she did played a key role in the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the ban on the horrendous partial-birth abortion procedure. She did it for political reasons while
working for the Clinton administration.
The Washington Times says Kagan "may be more responsible than anyone for keeping partial-birth abortion legal for an extra decade." Pause for a moment to think about that.
In part because of Elena Kagan's political activism, this horrific abortion procedure - which amounts to infanticide and culminates with a near full-term baby's brains being sucked out so the skull will collapse - continued to be performed across this country.
Elena Kagan's "handwritten notes" show that she personally re-wrote the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' (ACOG) official assessment of partial-birth abortion to better comport with her political views on abortion.
During her Senate Judiciary Committee hearings,
Elena Kagan did everything in her power to avoid taking responsibility for manipulating ACOG's expert testimony, but her defensiveness
only spurred closer questioning.
Senator Orrin Hatch asked Kagan a very direct question: "Did you write that memo?" Kagan never actually admitted she wrote the memo but was finally forced to reluctantly acknowledge that, "the document is certainly in my handwriting."
Philip, this hand-written document should be the
"kiss of death" for Kagan's confirmation!
The memo proves that she is a political activist who intentionally corrupted key expert evidence. And it proves that she holds radical pro-abortion political views that make it impossible for her to use the impartiality required of a Supreme Court Justice.
In the final analysis, Elena Kagan's past actions show that she is a political operative
who would use a seat on the Supreme Court to
advance a radical political agenda.
We must call for a FULL INVESTIGATION of events that took place during Elena Kagan's tenure in the Clinton White House.
We nust also call for a full review of discrepancies in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, especially concerning her notes to President Clinton giving political advice about abortion cases being considered by the federal judiciary.
We believe this investigation needs to be completed BEFORE the full Senate takes up
Kagan's nomination. If the pro-Kagan camp
doesn't accept this course of action, a
filibuster should be enacted until the
investigation is complete and all relevant
documents receive proper review!
Press your Senators to examine ALL the evidence that may weigh upon Kagan's qualification for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
And the Senate MUST NOT BE RUSHED by the all-too-familiar Obama/Reid/Pelosi arm twisting.
Kagan's radical political activism should disqualify her.
Elena Kagan's activities in the Clinton Administration should not be characterized as merely the actions of an ambitious young attorney whose zeal temporarily overrode her better judgment.
Rather, they appear to be calculated attempts to manipulate testimony by a seasoned lawyer who was at that time serving as counsel to the President of the United States.
If Kagan purposefully manipulated expert findings, then that was at the very least a disrespectful slap at the Court upon which she aspires to serve. Some have said that her manipulation of expert testimony approaches the
crime of evidence tampering - more than sufficient reason to call for Kagan's removal from consideration.
The evidence clearly shows that Elena Kagan does NOT have the ability to separate her quest
to implement a radical personal agenda from
the sacred duty of impartially judging as a
Supreme Court Justice.
And if Elena Kagan is seated, she would be in position to review the lawsuits against ObamaCare when they make their way to the Supreme Court. That is totally unacceptable!
Stand against Elena Kagan's confirmation.
"FULLY INVESTIGATE ELENA KAGAN AND OPPOSE HER CONFIRMATION"
There is STILL TIME for all of us to make our
voices heard by those on the Senate Judiciary
Committee, the Senators uncommitted in their
votes, and your own two Senators. This is
especially true now that Elena Kagan has
waffled during testimony about her personal
notes to President Clinton on partial-birth
Kagan's confirmation is far from being a "done deal," contrary to what you hear in the mainstream media. We can still stop
this dangerous nominee from being seated on the Supreme Court!
Hope it is awesome, Jill!!Posted by: carla at July 10, 2010 8:07 AM
I'm listening- but I'm not sure how long I'll last as I'm twelve hours ahead of EST- I'll look forward to listening to the recordings later after a good night's sleep. Great idea- we need an Aussie version!Posted by: Michelle at July 10, 2010 8:54 AM
I am listening to you right now :D
So glad I found out about this. I have listened to all ten hours. Everyone should check this out.Posted by: Julius Stahl at July 10, 2010 6:54 PM
Jill... you rocked. Your story always makes me cry. When I worked labor and delivery at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix (you know, the one having the controversy right now), I had an experience that to me shows the flipside of yours. We had a mom in for preterm labor of twins. We were desperately trying to stop labor and continue the pregnancy... she was 18 weeks along. When the first twin was born, everyone was still focusing on trying to save the second twin. There is no way this child could have survived... but they called me in and relieved me of all other duties for the rest of the shift so that I could sit and hold this little boy until he passed, peacefully in my hands. He was so tiny, but so perfect. We unfortunately were unable to save the other twin, either.
So, I held that little guy, just as you held the other... but the process that was undergone was 180 degrees removed from the intentional destruction of a child who would have otherwise survived... and you found discarded like garbage... this child was desperately wanted, unable to be saved, and a staff member assigned to ensure he did not pass alone, scared, or cold.
Thank you so much for your work, advocacy and education.Posted by: Elisabeth at July 11, 2010 1:55 AM
