While she smiled, nodded, and answered the softball questions lobbed at her with an alarming vacuity, the nominee of the Obama Administration to replace the retired Justice John Paul Stephens, Solicitor General Elena Kagan, was exposed by hard-hitting research done by those seeking to protect our youngest neighbors, children in the womb, from the evil of abortion. Her radical opposition to the first Human Right, the Right to Life, is clear in her rhetoric and record - and has now been uncovered in her past actions in governmental service.
It has now been revealed that she played a key role in rewriting the "American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists" (ACOG) statement on Partial Birth Abortion, precisely to defend this gruesome procedure against a ban during the Clinton Administration. The stories exposing her role in this matter while deputy assistant to President Clinton for domestic policy reveal her view of this gruesome procedure, her commitment to a radical anti-Right to Life agenda, and her lack of a clear understanding of legal ethics. The orchestrated theatre being played out before the television cameras did not.
Elena Kagan did not like the original 1996 statement of ACOG wherein they claimed they "could identify no circumstances under which this procedure (Partial Birth Abortion). . . would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman."

‘Kagan Should not Serve on US Supreme Court’
No kidding. She is the quintessential culmination of 30 years of what a failed academia produces (in addition to OB and the Banana Republic and his kabuki theatre).
Saddest thing is the performance of Republicans at the hearings (a few half-hearted attempts) ... pathetic, but predictable. Kagan will be the next Supreme Court Justice — probably unanimous. Our lack of leadership predicts the outcome. Republicans have no balls to “Bork” her, thought she truly does deserve ‘Borking,’ unlike Bork.
We are in a ridiculous but totally unnecessary state. We are also in such a state that we may not be able to save ourselves.
How did we get here? Conclusion: OB ISN’T that smart (as MSM repeatedly preaches), it IS that the American people are that stupid.
She should serve on the Supreme Court because she is brilliant, really-really smart, intelligent, knows alot of stuff, is high on the evolution scale and is much better than all those stupid cattle in flyover country.
We got here in large part because of uninformed and cowardly Republican primary voters.
