Bork to Publicly Oppose Kagan for Supreme Court

Monday, 21 Jun 2010 12:00 PM

Failed conservative Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork is joining anti-abortion activists to publicly oppose confirming Elena Kagan as a justice.

Bork plans to detail his criticisms of Kagan during a Wednesday news conference organized by Americans United for Life. The group calls itself the country's first national pro-life organization, and brands Kagan a pro-abortion activist.

Bork was nominated in 1987 by then-President Ronald Reagan to serve on the high court, but the Senate rejected him after an intensely partisan debate.

Kagan is President Barack Obama's choice to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. Hearings on her confirmation begin next week.
