Kagan played doctor and babies died....

In 1996, as an associate to President Clinton, Kagan recommended that ACOG add language indicating that partial birth abortion "may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman"—a direct contrast to ACOG’s original draft statement which said under no circumstance would partial birth abortion be the only option to save the life of the mother. Ms. Kagan’s willingness to bend medical facts to support an ideological point of view is inconsistent with the temperament required of a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Passing along this information below - from Liberty Counsel:

Any abortion involves the killing of an unborn child, but
the gruesome procedure called partial-birth abortion (PBA)
is grotesquely inhumane. PBA is closely akin to infanticide.

For several years, Supreme Court jurisprudence on partial-
birth abortion relied upon evidence that was manipulated by
Elena Kagan in political service of the Clinton White House.
It led the Court to strike down Nebraska's ban on PBA in
2000 as being unconstitutional. From 2000 until 2007, PBA
was "legal" in America until the Supreme Court eventually
upheld the PBA ban in June 2007.

John Adams said, "Facts are stubborn things."

Fact: Elena Kagan's "handwritten notes" are proof of her
manipulation of expert medical evidence submitted by the
American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG)
to the Supreme Court.

Fact: Her revised wording, which was quoted in the Court's
2000 majority opinion, played a key role in the horrendous
procedure continuing until President George W. Bush signed
a new ban into law in November of 2003, which ban was later
upheld in 2007.

Fact: Kagan never divulged to the Court that she was the
one who, in fact, had changed ACOG's official statement.

Fact: Kagan's radical political activism drove her to
manipulate expert testimony and to later avoid admitting
the fact that she had done so.

The Washington Times says Kagan "may be more
responsible than anyone for keeping partial-
birth abortion legal for an extra decade."

This nominee has been described as President Barack Obama's
ideological clone - and fellow academic elitist.

In any other period of American history, Kagan's
hand-written memo would be the "kiss of death"
for her confirmation!

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.

++Kagan undermines Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Reports are emerging that Elena Kagan has been working in the
shadows to sabotage the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law and "The
Defense of Marriage Act." According to several sources,
Solicitor General Kagan's signals that the government will
not effectively defend DOMA made it possible for Judge Joseph
L. Tauro to strike down parts of DOMA in Massachusetts earlier
this month.

He deemed the state's DOMA unconstitutional by ruling that
the law, which defines marriage as one man and one woman
for federal purposes, has no rational basis - solely because
the Department of Justice refused to give one. The ruling
initially only affects Massachusetts, but is considered to
be a model ruling for other states.

The president of the Massachusetts Family Institute
said, "[The ruling is] another blatant example
of a judge playing legislator!"

And Elena Kagan admitted in written responses to Senators'
questions that she personally participated in a meeting in
which she compromised the United States' position in a case
against the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy (DADT) being brought
by the Log Cabin Republicans.

Elena Kagan's actions as Solicitor General to
undermine the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and
"The Defense of Marriage Act" provide further
evidence that she allows her ideological biases
to trump her clear-cut duty!

Elena Kagan is just not experientially qualified or discerning
enough in judgment to get past her own political views while
rendering judgment as a Supreme Court Justice.

In a special report from Liberty Counsel's Washington, DC,
office, we reveal the true Elena Kagan, "In Her Own Words."

This is Elena Kagan, in her own words, regarding precedence
and the Constitution...

"I think that there are some circumstances in
which looking to the original intent is the
determinative thing in a case and other
circumstances in which it is likely not to
be. And I think, in general, judges should
look to a variety of sources when they interpret
the Constitution, and which take precedence in
a particular case is really a kind of
case-by-case thing."

Kagan's calculated answers during her hearings were a masterful
performance of avoiding clear statements about her true
positions. Yet, the hearings revealed enough of her
political leanings, activist views and questionable
judicial philosophies for our Washington office to
produce a five-page summary written largely in KAGAN'S

This document is a must-read for all Liberty
Counsel team members who are standing in the
gap opposing the nomination of Elena Kagan.
We have been told that many of our supporters
are printing multiple copies and passing it
out in civic groups and other places.

"Elena Kagan, In Her Own Words":


*ANTI-FAMILY: Elena Kagan’s zeal for “homosexual rights” will taint her rulings on pro-family cases.
*ANTI-FAITH: Kagan has expressed hostility toward faith-based organizations and would limit their impact on public policy decisions.
*ANTI-MILITARY: Kagan opposes the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and banned military recruiters from the Harvard Law School campus during a time of war in protest of such “discrimination.”
*ANTI-SOVEREIGNTY: Kagan’s views on transnational law undermine America’s self-rule and national sovereignty.
*ANTI-CONSTITUTION: Kagan has called the Constitution “defective” and shares President Obama’s view that we should have an “evolving” or “living” Constitution, thus marginalizing its ultimate legal authority. She has written about a supposed need to increase the power of the Executive Branch at the expense of legislative bodies.
