Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop published an open letter this week urging that the Senate Judiciary Committee block Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan because of her manipulation of the American Association of Gynecologists’ statement on partial-birth abortion.
Kagan “was willing to replace a medical statement with a political statement that was not supported by any existing medical data,” Koop wrote. “That is unethical, and it is disgraceful, especially for one who would be tasked with being a measured and fair-minded judge. … I urge the Senate to reject the politicization of medical science and vote no on the Kagan nomination.”
Koop urged Senators and all the American people to read the new report by AUL Action, the sister organization of Americans United for Life, which contains “substantive evidence of Ms. Kagan’s actions in this matter.” Click here to go to the AUL Action Web site, where the report is available as a free download.
Koop Says Kagan’s Actions Make Her Unfit for Court
