7. Unethical Political Hack Lauded as Fourth Female Supreme Court Justice in History
For the last 13 years, the abortion debate in America has been significantly shaped by one very important sentence stating that partial birth abortion “may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman, and a doctor should be allowed to make this determination.”
The sentence was published by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), but was authored by a Clinton White House employee: our newest Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. Earlier drafts of the ACOG statement had substantially different implications regarding late term abortion:
The task force’s initial draft statement did not include the statement that the controversial abortion procedure “might be” the best method “in a particular circumstance.” Instead, it said that the select 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.”
Acting as a political operative for the Clinton administration, Kagan used her White House platform to creatively reframe the scientific findings of the ACOG panel. The revised statement was crafted for political gain, and was cited over and over in articles, op-eds, and court decisions. Her involvement in rephrasing ACOG’s scientific findings influenced both public opinion and policy for more than a decade.
This horrifyingly unethical woman now holds one of the single most powerful government positions in the country, and is likely to remain there for decades. And instead of admitting her dishonest political meddling, the Left is busy throwing pink ticker tape parades because our newest justice has two X chromosomes and pees sitting down. But hey, at least she’s a woman!
