Action Alert
Take Action Senate to Hold Hearing on Pro-Abortion Deputy AG!
Tell your Senators to Vote NO on Ogden!
February 4, 2009

President Obama has nominated David Ogden for the post of Deputy Attorney General, which just happens to be recently-confirmed U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's old position under Janet Reno.

Mr. Ogden is well-known for his radically pro-abortion position. He wrote and filed an amicus brief on behalf of Casey v. Planned Parenthood (1992) in which he argued:

• "Abortion rarely causes or exacerbates psychological or emotional problems. When women do experience regret, depression, or guilt, such feelings are mild and diminish rapidly without adversely affecting general functioning. The few women who do experience negative psychological responses after abortion appear to be those with preexisting emotional problems.."


• "In sum, it is grossly misleading to tell a woman that abortion imposes possible detrimental psychological effects when the risks are negligible in most cases, when the evidence shows that she is more likely to experience feelings of relief and happiness, and when child-birth and child-rearing or adoption may pose concomitant (if not greater) risks or adverse psychological effects ...."

In fact, David Ogden is so pro-abortion that he began his career as a law clerk to Justice Harry Blackmun, the Supreme Court Justice who wrote the majority opinion in Roe v. Wade (1973).

Senate liberals are trying to push these nominees through committee at warp speed so that their controversial pasts fly under the radar. Your pro-life Senators want you to weigh in on this issue!  They need encouragement from their constituents to vote against these radical Obama nominees. 
Please start flooding your Senators phone lines and tell them to vote NO on Ogden!

The Senate Committee on the Judiciary will hold a hearing on the nomination of David W. Ogden to be Deputy Attorney General of United States Department of Justice tomorrow, Thursday, February 5, 2009 at 9:30am in Room 226 of the Senate Dirksen Office Building.

Please target the following pro-life Senators who sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee:

o Orrin Hatch- Utah
o Chuck Grassley- Iowa
o Jon Kyl- Arizona
o Jeff Sessions- Alabama
o Tom Coburn- Oklahoma
o Lindsey Graham- South Carolina
