Just when we think it couldn’t get worse, Obama serves up another hardcore pro-abort for a key position. Governor Kathleen Sebelius has compiled an abortion record second to none.
Of particular note is her cozy relationships with abortionists. I guess it’s more than cozy — it is outright scandalous. Sebelius received numerous campaign contributions from the nation’s number one late-term abortion serial killer George Tiller. Tiller is currently under indictment in Kansas. According to LifeNews.com, Sebelius coordinated a dinner with Tiller at the governor’s mansion.
Sebelius appointed abortionist Howard Ellis to the Kansas Board of Healing Arts. Ellis was later charged by the Board with attempting to falsify records. Then, there was her appointment of a supporter of the Tiller political action committee to the Human Rights Commission.
According to LifeNews.com, “Sebelius’ hand-picked attorney general, Paul Morrison, ran for office as a defender of the abortion industry. After only a few months in office, he was forced to resign amid reports of having sex in public buildings with a subordinate and abusing his authority to obstruct the investigation of abortion practitioners.”
Is it “coincidence” that Sebelius twice vetoed legislation establishing regulation of abortion clinics? That she vetoed legislation strengthening limits on late-term abortions? Or, was she trying to protect her friends and benefactors? As a state rep, Sebelius voted solidly pro-abortion, even on common sense bills like parental notification.
A Catholic, Sebelius has been rebuked by three Kansas bishops with Archbishop Joseph Naumann calling on her to stop receiving communion until she reverses her extreme abortion views and actions.
What is incredibly disappointing is the support given to the Sebelius nomination by pro-life Kansas Senator Sam Brownback. Having the support of her own Senator pretty much assures her confirmation.
