Legal Analysis of Solicitor General Elena Kagan’s Record on Abortion Rights
The Center for Reproductive Rights promotes women’s equality worldwide by securing reproductive rights as constitutional and international human rights. We extensively litigate in state and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. In addition to our U.S. work, the Center brings groundbreaking cases under international law before the United Nations and regional human rights bodies.
As a matter of policy, the Center does not take positions supporting or opposing judicial nominees, including nominees for vacancies on the U.S. Supreme Court. However, we do analyze the records of nominees for the Court to ascertain their support for abortion rights and reproductive rights more generally. In light of the recent nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court, we reviewed the nominee’s written materials as they have been made public, and present our analysis below.
