Say No to Another Subjective Supreme Court Justice

Please join me and Liberty Counsel in rejecting their current agenda which includes President Obama's appointment of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.

In addition to being an abortion supporter and religious organization naysayer, she is trained in transnational law, which utilizes foreign law to influence domestic. Kagan has said that the Constitution must be "reformed" to better comport to international standards of law.

Ms. Kagan also disapproves of religious organizations' involvement ("they should be 'off limits' ") in issues that concern "projects close to the central concerns of religion." In the context of that statement, she was speaking about counseling provided to teenagers faced with unplanned/unwanted pregnancies.

The Liberty Counsel petition also strongly rejects the current administration's interest in pushing the ENDA (employee non-discrimination act) law into effect this fall, as well as the Cap and Trade legislation, financial "reform" bills, immigration reform (i.e. making illegal immigrants legal) and the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act and "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

If you are also against both these types of legislation and their specific instantiations, that which we've already seen get pushed through with little to no concern over public opinion, please consider signing the petition.

I am astonished at you! Why are you not standing up for us women's Freedom of Choice?

Don't get me wrong, I am not supporting abortion as a backup for contraception, but for goodness sake, a woman has the right to choose what to do with her own body if a mistake has been made :-)

I have thought about abortion long and hard. Put myself in the position of a woman faced with that choice. At first, it almost seems understandable...

But that little developing baby has a beating heart, spinal cord and nervous system, preference for sleeping position and can open its eyes all before the 22-week mark. And abortions can be performed up until the 24th week in some states. And that all seems very, very wrong to me. Wrong, inhumane and selfish.

I know women who are not able to have children and who would gladly take these unwanted "choices" off the mother's hands. The mother's health is only in danger in less than 1% of cases. Usually that reasoning is given because, well, she doesn't want to birth the child or raise it. Why should we reward the irresponsible behavior which led to the pregnancy in the first place by allowing the woman to abort, then forget about the whole thing?
