Senator Lugar will back Kagan
July 22, 2010
Senator Richard Lugar has announced that he is throwing his full support behind the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Lugar’s announcement came just one day after Indiana Right to Life issued a statewide alert to contact Lugar’s office to urge opposition to her confirmation.
Kagan’s background points to many deeply troubling signs indicating that she will be an activist working to advance abortion through the power of the Supreme Court.
Kagan, who formerly served as an aide to President Bill Clinton, is widely regarded as a key figure in preventing enactment of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban. She has also taken objectionable positions on assisted suicide, human cloning, and political free speech.
