Did Elena Kagan manipulate medical findings on partial-birth abortion?

Will Solicitor General Elena Kagan be confirmed as Associate Justice?

Hopefully we can all agree that being confirmed to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, with lifetime tenure, is a very powerful post.

While we witness the confirmation hearings of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, candidate for Associate Justice of the High Court,  there are questions that need to be addressed.
My personal view is that our Constitution is not a living document subject to arbitrary judicial activism. That is why I agree that we need to dig deeper on the following allegation that was just sent to me.

Kagan manipulated evidence to promote abortion

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman Liberty Counsel

“What Elena Kagan did in 1997 is shockingly close to evidence tampering. This may be the “smoking gun” in Kagan’s quest for appointment to the Supreme Court. Please carefully read this crucial message.

The Senate is in recess until Monday, July 12, when it will once again take up Elena Kagan’s nomination to become an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.  This extended break in the middle of the process could truly be a God-send!

Shocking new information has emerged that could well change the outcome of Kagan’s nomination.

And the interval before the Senate reconvenes gives us time to replenish our Fax Barrage while investigators focus on a blaring inconsistency in Kagan’s testimony.

It has been revealed that Elena Kagan, while working for President Clinton, manipulated an expert medical finding that ultimately helped sway the Supreme Court to declare a ban on partial-birth abortion as being unconstitutional.

This shocking revelation shows how Kagan’s far-left activism directly affects her mindset and capacity for impartial judgment.  And we now know that Senators Arlen Specter and Jeff Sessions are very concerned about the serious discrepancies in Kagan’s testimony, and that Senator Orrin Hatch is officially opposing her confirmation!

Contrary to the pre-scripted opinions being expressed by the main stream media, Kagan’s confirmation is far from being a “done deal.”  We can still stop this dangerous nominee from being confirmed!

++How Kagan rewrote expert testimony to promote abortion.

According to Shannen Coffin, the deputy assistant attorney general in charge of the defense of the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act during the Bush Administration, in 1997 Kagan essentially re-wrote a key section of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ (ACOG) position on partial-birth abortion.

The problem is, Kagan at the time was working for the Clinton Administration as an advocate trying to convince the Court to declare the partial-birth abortion ban then in effect to be unconstitutional!

Here’s what happened…

According to Coffin, writing in the National Review, ACOG sent Kagan a draft of a statement in which ACOG stated they “could identify no circumstances under which [the partial-birth abortion] procedure…would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman.”

Ms. Kagan knew this would destroy pro-abortion arguments in the courts. So she wrote in an internal memorandum noting the ACOG statement “would be a disaster…” for the upcoming partial-birth abortion case.

Kagan then contacted ACOG and proposed that their statement be re-written as follows:

“An intact D&X [the medical term used for the horrendous partial-birth abortion procedure], however, may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman.”

Kagan intentionally and purposefully manipulated the ACOG finding, inverting the meaning of the initial finding!

Kagan’s wording was incorporated into the final document and was later submitted as evidence from ACOG to the Supreme Court.

Later, the Supreme Court cited the ACOG document – the same one Kagan had manipulated – when striking down the Nebraska partial-birth abortion ban. Coffin concludes:

“Miss Kagan’s decision to override a scientific finding with her own calculated distortion in order to protect access to the most despicable of abortion procedures seriously twisted the judicial process. One must question whether her nomination to the Court would have the same effect.”

Kagan waffled and dodged when directly questioned by Senator Orrin Hatch about the memo she wrote that caused the dramatic change in ACOG’s expert testimony.

In another blockbuster development Thursday, Americans United for Life (AUL) attorneys released evidence that Kagan may well have lobbied the American Medical Association to change its position as well!”
