Why Elena Kagan should not be on the Supreme Court

If there’s no other reason, this is why Elena Kagan should not be on the Supreme Court.

Weekly Standard:

Kagan, as a policy adviser to President Bill Clinton, had altered a medical group’s memo on partial-birth abortion, apparently for political reasons. At issue was a 1996 position paper by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), in which the group claimed that it “could identify no circumstances under which this procedure . . . would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman.” Partial-birth abortion “may not be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman,” ACOG wrote in its original statement (emphasis added). Kagan then apparently edited the word “not” out of the statement to make the statement more favorable for supporters of partial-birth abortion.

Someone who could do this has no integrity and cannot be trusted to safeguard the Constitution.

Watch a video in which an evasive Kagan tried to avoid direct questions about the issue but admits the change is in her handwriting.

You, of course, heard about this scandal on MSNBC, CNBC and CNN.
