National Right to Life: Small favors??

by E. Carroll

-NRL released a statement regarding President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.  The bottom line- NRL is very opposed to this nomination.

There are troubling indications that Ms. Kagan generally favors an activist, results-oriented approach to constitutional law.  For example, in her 1995 law journal article, she wrote, “The bottom-line issue in the appointments process must concern the kinds of judicial decisions that will serve the country and, correlatively, the effect the nominee will have on the Court’s decisions . . . If that is too results oriented … so be it. . .”  She also wrote that “it should be no surprise by now that many of the votes a Supreme Court Justice casts have little to do with technical legal ability and much to do with conceptions of value.”
