Karen Testerman issued the following call to President Obama today: 

As a gubernatorial candidate for New Hampshire I have serious concerns about your nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States.  I want to urge you to withdraw this nomination.  In the hearings this week she said, "Look to my whole life - my tenure as Solicitor General, as Dean of Harvard Law, my time in the White House..." when determining her judicial philosophy.   If her life is to be the standard by which we judge her philosophy, Americans are justifiably concerned.  Mr. President, it is clear from Ms. Kagan's extremist views and actions that objective impartiality is not a quality that she will bring to the bench.

She is unabashedly radical.  Her left leaning activism in the areas of abortion, GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered) rights, gun-control, euthanasia and the military are extreme.  The methods she used to push her agenda are ruthless, immoral and borderline illegal.  After she was admonished for attempting to prohibit military recruitment on Harvard's campus, she encouraged student groups to find "legal" ways to harass the military recruiters.  She established transgender studies at Harvard Law School.  One of the courses advocated taking on "newer identities" including "polygamy, S&M [sadomasochism], [and] the sexuality of minors."  She was instrumental in getting sex-change operations partially covered by the student health plan at Harvard.  Why are the hard earned tax dollars of our families being used for cosmetic surgery?  I obtained these facts from a comprehensive report that is available at this web address:  http://massresistance.com/docs/gen/10b/kagan/index.html  You, and all Americans must read this eye-opening report.

It is her stance on the sanctity of life which concerns me the most.  Americans agree that life should be constitutionally protected.  The opening words of our Declaration of Independence speak for themselves:  "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."  When we become a society that no longer values life, we will cease to be a nation.

While she is entitled to her own political views, she is quoted as saying, "I think judges tend to be too separate from the political process and the body politic."  This statement combined with her extremist views make it quite clear that Ms. Kagan would be an activist judge.  She will not remain impartial.  You are President for all of us, not simply the radical left wing of your party.  I urge you to withdraw your nomination of Ms. Kagan immediately.

Testerman is on the September 14, 2010 primary election ballot.
