Washington, DC – One courageous Republican Senator has blocked the confirmation of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to the post of Secretary of Health and Human Services. This action has postponed her confirmation vote for at least two weeks, until after Congress’ Easter recess.
While Sebelius was not questioned about her extremist abortion policies, concerns have been raised about them and about her $8,000 tax “error” that surfaced last week.
“This is good news and means we have two more weeks to put the pressure on our Senators,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We especially encourage people to voice their concerns about Sebelius to Kansas Senators Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback, who have a huge ability to spark opposition to Sebelius. Their support thus far for Sebelius has been of great concern to us. Now they have been given a second chance to do the right thing.”
