Is this the kind of person we want serving on the Supreme Court?
During her time in the Clinton White House Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan worked to undermine opposition to the barbaric practice of partial birth abortion. She was able to get a contact at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to insert a few lines in a report that was later used as the basis for legal challenges to a state ban on the practice. National Review has the full story. It's sort of a similar and equally dishonest tactic as that used by Obama officials at the Dept. of Interior who added language supporting a moratorium on oil drilling to a statement by scientists. A statement to which the scientists strongly object.
The memo which Kagan wrote has her handwriting on the document.During the confirmation hearings, Senator Orin Hatch (R-UT) asked her a simple question: "Did you write that memo." What followed was some of the most blatant evasion I have ever heard a public official make; let alone a nominee for the high court.
