Elena Kagan Looks Like?  Not that it makes any difference at this point since Solicitor General Elena Kagan will certainly be confirmed next week by the Democrat-controlled Senate as the next associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, but Americans should fully comprehend who and what they’re getting in the person of Ms. Kagan.

I don’t just mean that she’s liberal to her core and I don’t refer to her antipathy toward the military nor to the rumors that she’s a lesbian.  I refer to her commitment to murdering defenseless babies.

Now I know that such a damning statement raises the hackles of “progressives,” (liberals, leftists, and most Democrats), who tend to rise up en masse to defend a woman’s “right to choose” and deny en masse that aborting “the product of conception” is tantamount to killing babies.

However, when a fetus is 20 or more weeks old, is viable outside the womb, and possesses all of the God-given human features of an infant, when it looks like a baby, sucks its thumb like a baby, reacts to external stimuli, has a fully-formed brain, heart, lungs, and all the other organs of a tiny human being, only those deeply committed to eradicating its life at all costs can deny it is a living person.

Elena Kagan is such an individual and a female individual at that, a member of the female gender which is specially engineered to be emotional, caring, nurturing as opposed to dispassionate, detached, and murderous.

It has long struck me as a major contradiction that “progressives” fervently defend women’s and children’s rights but are so adamantly opposed to preserving the rights of the pre-born, in the case of victims of partial birth abortion, the virtually born.  If not for the intercession of the abortionist armed with his morbid tools to extinguish life, those victims would be born.

The late, great senator from New York, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, was a liberal in his time, a liberal who supported choice, who initially supported partial birth abortions, but a liberal who could think beyond the narrow confines of rigid ideology. 

Moynihan must have shocked his fellow Democrats after he learned the details of what actually happens during a partial birth abortion and reversed course and famously said of the procedure: “I think this is just too close to infanticide.  A child has been born and it has exited the uterus. What on Earth is this procedure?” 

What on Earth, indeed, Senator Moynihan? 

Elena Kagan never experienced that epiphany and in fact was instrumental in Moynihan’s originally favoring the “procedure,” was instrumental in convincing some members of SCOTUS that it was the only recourse in protecting the life of the mother, was instrumental in convincing some Americans that it should be legal.

Unfortunately, Kagan had used subterfuge and deception to accomplish all that instrumentalism.  In short, she lied, dissembled, and manipulated the truth in 1996 in her role as associate counsel in the Clinton White House.

Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop has characterized her actions at the time as “disgraceful” and “unethical:” http://tiny.cc/6cygq
