Sebelius Must Answer For Abortion Extremism, Corruption

Washington, DC – Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius appeared before the U.S. Senate Health and Education committee yesterday and gave no answer for her extremist abortion policies or her ties to the radical abortion lobby, including late-term abortionist George Tiller.

Sebelius is scheduled to appear before the Senate Finance Committee at 10:00 am EDT for further examination. Her confirmation will be voted on at that time.

“We call on members of the Finance Committee to ask the hard questions about her policies that have supported and encouraged dangerous conditions at abortion clinics and her involvement in numerous abortion-related scandals. The people have a right to know exactly what they are getting with Gov. Sebelius,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Among issues that that make Sebelius unfit to serve are:

• Sebelius’ connections to late-term abortionist George Tiller and Planned Parenthood. Sebelius partied with both abortionist suppliers when they were each under criminal investigation.

Documents and receipts show that taxpayers funded a party that Sebelius hosted in Tiller’s honor at the official governor’s mansion in 2007. She claims the party was an auction prize and that the cost of the party was reimbursed, but not one shred of evidence has ever been produced to back up those claims. Operation Rescue says her fabrication about the party cannot be believed.

• Sebelius showed poor judgment in appointing political cronies and associating with politicians involved in numerous abortion-related scandals. Among those are the following:

o She personally recruited Paul Morrison to run for attorney general. He was forced to resign within months after having been caught in a sex and abortion investigation obstruction scandal.
o Sebelius appointed abortionist Howard Ellis to head the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts after he surrendered his medical license in Missouri rather than face disciplinary action. He later was forced to resign and was charged attempting to persuade a physician to falsify records.

• Sebelius repeatedly vetoed safety rules for abortion clinics. Her vetoes allowed two abortion businesses to continue operating under filthy, unsafe conditions.

• Sebelius served for 8 years as insurance commissioner. As a result, health insurance in Kansas is now among the most expensive in the nation, drastically reducing health care affordability.

“We are urging the public to contact the Senate Finance Committee today and demand answers to these issues,” said Newman.

  • I just sent this article to Grassley, Roberts and Brownback. They (and the rest of the Senators) need to hear from a whole bunch of you if you want to make a difference on the despicable Sebelius nomination. And they need to hear from you now.

  • I cannot understand what is the matter with our system and our employees (the ones we elected to represent OUR interests) that someone such as Sebelius should end up in a position of even more power after she has so obviously abused the power of her governorship and why she was not forced to resign as governor after her appalling behavior (not to mention dishonest) in appointing a man head the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts who was forced to resign rather than face losing his license. What in the world is anyone thinking about? If you or I were looking for a job and had this abysmal records we would (rightly) be turned down without a second thought.

    Is anyone out there thinking?
