The Senate has once again confirmed one of President Obama’s pro-abortion nominees. Elena Kagan was confirmed as the U.S. Solicitor General by a 61-31 vote on Thursday, March 19th.
In the past Kagan has been a strong supporter of the pro-abortion agenda. She has vigorously opposed the de-funding of taxpayer-funded clinics which promote abortions, despite the fact that a majority of Americans do not want their tax dollars to fund abortion providers.
The Solicitor General is the person appointed to argue for the U.S. Government in front of the Supreme Court whenever the government is part of a case. The Solicitor General is therefore responsible, in part, for enforcing the law of the land, including the laws that restrict abortion.
