LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- As a White House adviser in 1997, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan urged then-President Bill Clinton to support a ban on late-term abortions, a political compromise that put the administration at odds with abortion-rights groups.Well, obviously someone didn't get the memo. Every liberal woman worth her IUD knows that women have the right to kill their unborn children right up to the moment they are born. This isn't going to play well in the parlors.
Documents reviewed Monday by The Associated Press show Kagan encouraging Clinton to support a bill that would have banned all abortions of viable fetuses except when the physical health of the mother was at risk. The documents from Clinton's presidential library are among the first to surface in which President Barack Obama's new choice for the high court weighs in on the thorny issue of abortion.
