Is Elena Kagan Morally Blind?
American Thinker ^ | July 03, 2010 | James Lewis

Posted on 07/02/2010 11:50:12 PM PDT by neverdem

Elena Kagan has now admitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee that as a Clinton lawyer in 1997, she fraudulently revised an official medical opinion by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The medical society was going to publicly reveal that "its panel of experts found no circumstances in which the (partial birth abortion) procedure was the only option for saving the life of the woman."

In a secret internal memo, she wrote that "This, of course, would be a disaster[.]"

Kagan therefore secretly revised the language so the final statement in 1997 claimed that the partial-birth abortion "may be the best and most appropriate procedure in particular circumstances to save the life or preserve the health of the woman."

That was a pernicious lie. The medical panel originally said that was false. Kagan substituted her own judgment for a medical consensus.

No wonder eight hundred Jewish rabbis have publicly stated that in their opinion, Elena Kagan is not morally qualified to be on the Supreme Court. Her fraudulent actions in 1997 legally authorized the killing of approximately two thousand newborns or almost-newborns each year, according to the pro-abortion Gutmacher Institute.

Partial birth abortion means killing a full-term fetus, a human being. That is murder by biological definition. The media try to throw dust in our eyes about that fact, but most Americans know. We might have mixed feelings about abortion in the first month of pregnancy, but a full-term baby is a human being, and whether it is killed ten minutes before or after delivery makes no difference. It's still the same baby.

What part of "Thou Shalt Not Kill" don't liberals understand? These are the most compassionate people in the world, remember? Elena Kagan doesn't seem to get the biological reality of babies who are identical to newborns but still living in the womb. She seems to be so stuck that she cannot see reality.

In 2003, the Republicans passed a ban on partial birth abortion, later affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court. That lead has now been followed by a number of states. But a recent medical article on the 2003 Partial Birth Abortion Act claims that the law only forced abortion doctors to kill fetuses in the womb. That's not "partial birth," get it? You can do anything to a baby in the womb, no matter how developed it might be. These "abortion providers" are publicly boasting that they are getting around the law by killing near-term babies in the womb. It is astonishing what ideological blindness will do to people.

I know Miss Kagan is Jewish by heritage, but that only makes her more painful to watch. Of all the people in the world, the Jews, whose babies and toddlers were taken away to be killed by the Nazis, should be hypersensitive to this question. Dr. Kagan is a woman, and we think women are especially sensitive to babies. And yet, in a once-in-a-lifetime moment of decision in 1997, Kagan failed to stand for the most basic protection of innocent life.

Elena Kagan has some terrifying opinions about the government's ability to kill free speech. At Harvard she was part of the feminist establishment that got Larry Summers fired as president for dropping a politically incorrect remark. Kagan is no defender of free speech, not even on university campuses where telling the truth is the essence of scholarship. Just the opposite. We have censorship on our campuses today because of the likes of Dean Kagan.

In front of the Judiciary Committee she's been clowning it up. But I don't think Kagan is a funny lady. No, when I look at her, I look at a commissar of Political Correctness, who rose to the top at Harvard Law in the New Age of PC. Stalin's Commissars also made sure the right people died in Siberia and Lublyanka.

We know that premature babies born in the third trimester respond to touch, pain, cuddling, and baby talk. Many biomedical articles in peer-reviewed journals support that claim. Others dispute it, but when there is honest disagreement, we should follow the ancient medical rule: First, Do No Harm!

The  brain waves of third-trimester fetuses show that they go through sleeping, dreaming, and waking. The closer they grow to term, the more they are just like any other baby. And then you kill them at the moment of birth -- not in a desperate bid to save the life of the mother, but because it's not convenient to raise a Down Syndrome child? And then we don't even mandate general anesthesia for the baby, the way we do for convicted killers on death row?

Is this the person we want on the Supreme Court?

It doesn't matter, gutless Republicans jsut want the dems in the senate to like them.

If Kagan were a Republican choice and pro-life, the dems would have no problem turning up the volume and obstructing where they could.

To answer the question in the title of the thread:
I am pro-Israel and I bless the Jewish people, but, most American Jews are very Liberal and "morally" challenged. So, to answer the question, I would answer a resounding "YES"!!!

I don’t think we need to wait and see how the GOP will govern if returned to power.

The way they handle this nomination settles it for me.

The ball is in their court.

Filibuster this bag of mendacious suet.

When confronted with a report that comes to the conclusion that partial birth abortion is unnecessary she responds “this is a disaster.” Yeah, I’d say she is morally blind. Ethically stunted. Emotionally dead. Mentally perverted.

I would think the simple fact of altering an official stance to suit political ends would be enough to end her appointment.

That's blindingly obvious to all but the most partisan. and I've even read non-conservative pieces saying "This isn't how this is supposed to work."

She is unqualified, and no one in DC gives a damn, they'll just let her go through because that's what they do.

After altering those documents she filed them in a Federal court. I think that is an ethical violation that could get her disbarred. Is it too late to pursue that and who/how does that get done?

Elana Kagan is the embodiment of the cult of moral relativism. This cult is a sickness that sinks to the snake pit of the ends justifies the means behavior to further its objectives. If this blatant value system were not so alarming in its own nature, what is more terrifying is the communist motivation behind it.

Evil and soul-less comes to my mind when considering this nominee.

It’s no accident that she is doing her best to hide her true intentions towards life, our constitution, our national security, or our religious faiths.

If I were a betting man I would be betting she will be confirmed.

The whole Congress is as morally blind as she is.

If I had my way not one of them would be returning after the next election cycle.

At least three senators have already announced they will not vote to confirm.

We can count on Ms. Linseed voting yes.

Interesting to see what Brown will do since Harvard is in his backyard. Wonder if he has any guts at all.

“Kagan is morally bankrupt.”

Actually she just perfectly represents the modern liberal train of thought. She has exchanged the Judeo-Christian idea of morality with that of secular-humanism, Marxism, neo-paganism. She has bought the lie that morality is whatever the ivory tower elites have decreed what it is. They are much smarter than those evil Christians.
So, in their definition she is very moral.

Had an argument with an open Socialist about morality. His view was that “everybody knows what morality is!”

I order to go bankrupt that would mean that there had to be possession of morals at some time. It is impossible for her to have gone morally bankrupt. She is and always has been simply immoral.

She makes me remember yet again the words of my seventh grade teacher, Mrs. Rivers. “Y’all remember this, a good woman is better than any man but a bad woman is WORSE than any man who ever walked the Earth.” I am beginning to think she was far wiser than I ever imagined.

I believe that Elena Kagan is an atheist. That’s the reason that she was unable to bring herself to recognize God given rights. She just doesn’t believe in a God. I don’t believe that Obama does, either.

The Jewish Sandhedrin required that only married men with children could sit on their Court of Law.

This life experience is what develops wisdom.

So much for the childless “wise Latina” Sotomayer and this Kagan, not to mention Souter, who turned out to be among the worst appointments ever.

This court would be seriously imbalanced with the addition of husbandless, childless Kagan who obviously has missed out on developing authentic human empathies.

Kagan reminds me a lot of Abe Fortas. He too was a knee-jerk, robot-like, leftwinger into remodeling children's laws (his specialty?).

Abe's big problem was TAKING MONEY he should not have taken. None of the sums were huge ~ but given the value of the dollar at the time and what government employees got paid, they were certainly handsome ~ enough to get a decision a subtle shift I am sure.

Still, it was his predictable and dependable kow-tow to the left in every single case he handled on the SCOTUS that made him so popular with LBJ and his trashy array of crooks and wastrals.

Kagan promises us no more than did Fortas. She'll probably deliver much of the same. I'd start looking for the special donors now!

It's morally blind. It's how they think. They have been told all their lives that it is impolitic to judge so they are amoral.

For a really good explanation listen to Evan Sayet describe it for the Heritage Foundation: HERITAGE FOUNDATION: "How Modern Liberals Think"
