Elena Mengele Kagan

Power Line has what they describe as the "smoking gun" that should destroy Solicitor General Elena Kagan's bid for the Supreme Court, pointing to Shannen W. Coffin's explosive revelation at NRO.

While working for the Clinton Administration, Kagan committed intentional fraud, rewriting a statement from a medical organization to protect the beastly practice of partial birth abortion, a practice the medical experts said had no legitimate need.

The initial draft said that the ACOG panel "could identify no circumstances under which this procedure . . . would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman." That language horrified the rabidly pro-abortion Elena Kagan, then a deputy assistant to President Clinton for domestic policy. This is what Kagan wrote in a memo to her superiors in the Clinton White House:
Todd Stern just discovered that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is thinking about issuing a statement (attached) that includes the following sentence: "[A] select panel convened by ACOG could identify no circumstances under which [the partial-birth] procedure ... would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman." This, of course, would be disaster -- not the less so (in fact, the more so) because ACOG continues to oppose the legislation. It is unclear whether ACOG will issue the statement; even if it does not, there is obviously a chance that the draft will become public.
So Kagan took matters into her own hands: incredibly, she herself appears to have written the key language that eventually appeared in the ACOG report.

Kagan's radical left wing ideology dictated that she commit brazen fraud to support the revolting practice of infanticide after medical experts declared there is no medical justification for partial birth abortion.

Elena Kagan lied. She took a report from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and distorted it to say precisely the opposite of what the group concluded.

Read the entire article. Read Powerline's conclusion.

Elena Kagan shouldn't be on the Court.

She should be on trial in front of one.

Republican and pro-life Democrat Senators have a sacred duty to filibuster Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court, and any Senator that does not standard against this monster's nomination should be targeted for replacement.

Elena Kagan is not judicial material. She's a zealot, and one utterly without morals.

She is to the SCOTUS what BHO is to the White House.

Yea smitty - but much worse! thousands times worse because BHO could be gone in 2.5 years - she will be with us for possibly 25-35-40+ years. And worse, what if she ever becomes part of the majority?????? She must be stopped, but I am afraid our current crop of spineless Rebubs will have no stomach for that. On the other side, if the Democraps were the minority, they have no problem Borking a conservative. Smitty, your children, grandchildren and beyond will curse the day she is confirmed!!!!!!!

Do not get excited here. If you believe for one minute that the Repubies will filibuster this broad, you should buy some swampland in Florida. They will confirm her. They will cave. They always have, and they always will. It's a gentleman's game with the repubies. They want to be nice to the dims so that the dims will be nice to them. How's that working out for ya'?

Devil's Advocate: There is a major difference between "NO other option" and "never the best option." The statements are NOT "precisely the opposite" -- both statements can be true without contradictions. It is entirely possible that the statement that passed into the report is factually correct, and that the original ACOG statement is also factually correct, if there exist ANY conceivable circumstances in which the PBA procedure could be the *least bad* option of the options available.

EX: If the only options are to do the procedure, or to accept higher odds of maternal death or injury by not doing the procedure, both statements are factually correct. I suspect that's exactly why ACOG did not repudiate the statement.
