This afternoon, pro-life students from Students for Life of America will hand-deliver over 7,800 I Oppose Kagan petitions to Senators on Capitol Hill. It has been announced that President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan, will be voted on tomorrow in the Senate Judiciary Committee moving her confirmation process forward.
Students for Life of America teamed up with LifeNews.com to create the I Oppose Kagan, an online petition opposing Kagan’s confirmation because of her radical support of abortion. While working for the Clinton Administration, Kagan was a strong advocate for partial birth abortion and cloning, going so far as to change scientific data to influence President Clinton to veto the Partial Birth Abortion Ban.
SFLA’s Executive Director, Kristan Hawkins remarked, “ America does not need another activist justice on the Supreme Court, but rather one who respects the Constitution and individual rights, including those of the preborn. Confirming Kagan could mean 30 more years of legalized abortion in the United States even though a majority of Americans are now pro-life.”
