Reacting to revelations of the Supreme Court nominee’s evident role in drafting the 1996 American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists position paper on partial-birth abortion, conservative blogger John Hinderaker says "it appears that Elena Kagan participated in a gigantic scientific deception," and adds:
On behalf of the Clinton White House, she deliberately subverted what was supposed to be an objective scientific process. . . .
The federal courts were victimized by a gross deception and a perversion of both the scientific process and the judicial process, carried out, the evidence appears to show, by Elena Kagan. . . .
Ms. Kagan has a great deal of explaining to do. Unless she can come up with an innocent explanation for these documents, she should not be confirmed.
Abby Wisse Schachter the New York Post writes: "Kagan is so opposed to any curbs on abortion that she was willing to distort medical results in order to bolster a political position." And Melissa Clouthier of Liberty Pundits writes: "The Republicans should filibuster. This should be over."
