Inside and out, Elena Kagan is vile and ugly (and I rarely, if ever, comment on a woman's unfortunate genetic endowments but will forego that compact just this once, her outer being more likely a product of her inner self.) [Ha! I was wrong. I already forgot Helen Thomas!]
Her collusion with the American Council of Obstetrics and Gynecology just proves what some women have secretly known about their doctors: that some of them are filled with bloodlust for killing babies. I've met women like that only once or twice in person. I still shudder to think of the encounter.
These vile sorts of women serve in the highest offices of administrative power and they continue to gain power through their compact with death.
I would say I don't care what you think about abortion, but I do.
I will say however, that anyone who adamantly defends partial-birth murder has an agenda so dark and unspeakable as to make the bravest amongst us quake at the unknown depths of it. Lest you think my raw opinion to be hyperbole, I shall counter by questioning the humanity of the beyond-all-reason method of stabbing spinal cords and sucking brains as a viable medical procedure in any imagined world of danger.
That the procedure was found to be unnecessary in any scenario is the plain fact. That Elena Kagan manipulated that fact out of all plain meaning, and that the ACOG's legislative director went along with it is easy enough to verify. [so let's verify. let's ask her.] But why do you think it was important enough for an
attorney general policy staffer to suborn a professional body of practitioners and scientists for her own ends?
What it all means for civilization is up to your imagination. In her own words to Clinton, Kagan worried thus:
Todd Stern just discovered that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is thinking about issuing a statement (attached) that includes the following sentence: "[A] select panel convened by ACOG could identify no circumstances under which [the partial-birth] procedure ... would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman." This, of course, would be disaster -- not the less so (in fact, the more so) because ACOG continues to oppose the legislation. It is unclear whether ACOG will issue the statement; even if it does not, there is obviously a chance that the draft will become public.
Read it twice. Let it sink in. The face of evil has a name: Elena Kagan.
