This morning President Obama nominated US Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace Justice Stevens on the Supreme Court of the United States.
Her approval by the Senate is virtually a lock.
At least the MSM won’t be able to whine about yet another dangerous, foreign-power-obeying Catholic on the SCOTUS. 50 year old. Ms. Kagan is Jewish. She is not married.
During her stint at Harvard Law Kagan banned military recruiters from the Harvard campus because of the U.S. military’s "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" policy. She thought that policy discriminated against homosexuals.
I suspect we will hear a great deal more about this during the summer. It is one of the only things she has done which gives a clue to her views.
However, Lifenews.com states that Kagan is pro-abortion because, among other things, she "vigorously opposed the de-funding of taxpayer-funded clinics which promote abortions, despite the fact that a majority of Americans do not want their tax dollars to fund abortion providers." On this point, however, even if Kagan is found to be pro-abortion, so was Justice Steven, whom she will replace.
