Skip to comments.When Kagan Played Doctor: Elena Kagan's partial-birth abortion scandal.
Posted on 07/06/2010 4:03:36 AM PDT by dixjea
Fourteen years ago, to protect President Clinton's position on partial-birth abortions, Elena Kagan doctored a statement by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Conservatives think this should disqualify her from the Supreme Court. They understate the scandal. It isn't Kagan we should worry about. It's the whole judiciary. Kagan, who was then an associate White House counsel, was doing her job: advancing the president's interests. The real culprit was ACOG, which adopted Kagan's spin without acknowledgment. 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.

nobody but nobody ever wanted to play doctor with Kagan...unless it was a Rosie O’Donut type of Bulldyke.
Partial birth abortion is an abomination.
All abortions are really.
But partial birth abortions are the worst.
Barbaric to say the least.
Savagely cruel to the max.
I hope this does it.
Altering documents. That’s as crooked as a judge gets.
Charge her with perjury and forgery.
Why we need less government: (Let’s begin the list here.)
1) Judges who base decisions on altered documents
2) Legislators who pass bills they have not bothered to read
3) A president who is ineligible to hold office
