Outside of the incessant Twittering of the Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino, I haven’t seen much commentary from the Right on Elena Kagan’s hearing today … and the few things I have seen have tended to be along the line of this ridiculous press release from the American Life League:
“Elena Kagan has revealed herself as the pro-abortion activist she is. The ‘health of the mother’ exception has long been code for abortion on demand for any reason under the sun – including financial ‘health.’
“Kagan’s position is clearly opposed by the majority of Americans who self-identify as pro-life. While we are not shocked that an Obama nominee would be anything but rabidly pro-death, we are compelled to demand representation from our elected leaders: this pro-abortion ideologue is not fit to serve on the Supreme Court.
While poll results may show that a bare plurality of Americans consider themselves “pro-life,” a whopping 80% believe that the option should be available in certain circumstances … like for “the health of the mother”:
Only 15% believe abortion should be illegal in all circumstances, which is the position held by the American Life League .. and yet ALL claims that it is Kagan who is the extremist ideologue.
