Kagan Opposed Late-Term Abortions in '97

Ad Feedback

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has no experience on the bench but newly uncovered documents reveal that she opposed late-term abortion.

While working as a White House adviser in 1997, Kagan urged former President Bill Clinton to support a bill that banned late-term abortions.

The measure did provide an exemption for the health of the mother. Some said the memo was more of a political calculation than a legal brief, and the move put Clinton and Kagan at odds with abortion rights groups.

Nevertheless, pro-life groups are opposing Kagan's nomination, saying she is a strong supporter of abortion rights.

CBN News White House Correspondent David Brody said that her nomination is drawing criticism from liberals as well as conservatives.

Kagan is on Capitol Hill Tuesday meeting with senators in preparation for her confirmation hearings.
