AUL - Yoest Statement on Today's Kagan Vote

"Today’s vote to move forward on Elena Kagan’s nomination is clouded by outstanding questions regarding her role in manipulating the medical statements of two major organizations on partial-birth abortion. Last week, AUL Action delivered a comprehensive, 54-page report to the Senate on this issue. I strongly encourage Senators to closely examine our report and to formally investigate her role in the partial-birth abortion debate before bringing this nomination to a floor vote. Based on these concerns, I urge the full Senate to roundly reject her nomination."
