Kagan Writes ACOG Language against Partial-Birth Abortion
A recent discovery about Supreme Court Justice nominee Elena Kagan has illuminated her truly pro-abortion views. When the U.S. Supreme Court decided to strike down the 2000 Nebraska partial-birth abortion ban, they cited in part the statement from “a select panel” on the American College of Gynecologists (ACOG), in which the group stated that the procedure “may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman.”
Now, after reviewing documents from Kagan’s days as deputy assistant of domestic policy to President Clinton, it was revealed that Kagan actually suggested the exact wording of the ACOG’s statement on partial-birth abortion. The committee’s original language stated that ACOG “could identify no circumstances under which this procedure. . . would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman.” Kagan recognized this as being profoundly harmful to the argument against a partial-birth abortion ban. In an internal memorandum, Kagan stated that it “would be a disaster — not the less so (in fact, the more so) because ACOG continues to oppose the legislation.”
Therefore, the language that the ACOG used to promote this hideous abortion procedure was not drafted by doctors and their carefully documented scientific findings, but by a White House appointee who was concerned not about science, but simply about protecting all access to abortion. Kagan’s distortion of the scientific data is extremely troubling. This ACOG language was one of the major hurdles faced by Justice Department lawyers. Not only is her pro-abortion stance now clearly obvious, but her integrity is certainly in question. We cannot afford to approve a nominee for our Supreme Court who clearly ignores evidence to promote her own political agenda.
