What’s a liberal lawyer to do if it turns out that the medical body opposed to legislation banning partial birth abortion “could identify no circumstances under which this procedure . . . would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman”?
In said liberal lawyer’s own words: it “would be a disaster.” Disaster for whom? For those sworn to slavishly uphold abortion on demand as a “right.”
So said liberal lawyer manipulates the statement by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists while a Clinton appointee, and in the process said manufactured statement becomes the piece of evidence to which the Supreme Court turns in overturning Nebraska’s partial birth abortion ban in 2000.
Said lawyer left a paper trail.
So Elana Kagan, Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, the liberal lawyer in question and defender of abortion-for-all turned the statement “could identify no circumstances under which this procedure… would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman” into “may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman.”
Funny how that happens, huh?
Read the original filibuster-her-liberal-ass-NOW-expose, “Kagan’s Abortion Distortion” at NRO.
Thanks in great part to Kagan’s apparent fabrication, all state laws banning partial birth abortions were struck down in 2000. No one knows how many children might be alive now if it weren’t for Kagan’s alleged falsification. Accurate data on partial birth abortions is hard to come by; there are many reasons why a doctor might not want to own up to performing this diabolical “procedure.” But low estimates put the number of victims at somewhere between 650 and 2200 babies terminated annually before the ban. I don’t know how many were killed in states that had a ban in place before the 2000 decision. But would it be going too far to say, if these charges are true, Kagan lied, babies died?
The Other McCain wonders where Kagan received her medical degree, and recalls “Animal House.” Oddly enough, that seems an apt description of the Obami shenanegans, doesn’t it?
[I]t appears that Elena Kagan participated in a gigantic scientific deception. On behalf of the Clinton White House, she deliberately subverted what was supposed to be an objective scientific process.
I thought the liberals were slaves to science? Oh, that’s right: not when science negates the political agenda at large.
Gateway Pundit calls it the “Kagan smoking gun.” Will it be?
