Hattip to Jay Anderson at Pro Ecclesia who has done yeoman work in keeping his eye on Sebelius. It is fitting that President Obama, the most pro-abort president in our nation’s history, has nominated for Secretary of Health and Human Services, the most pro-abort governor in our nation, Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius.
Sebelius throughout her political career has been a strident, one might say fanatical, supporter of abortion. In 1992 as a member of the Kansas House of Representatives, her support for pro-abortion legislation brought this rebuke from Archbishop Ignatius Strecker. After she was elected as governor, she constantly clashed with Archbishop James Keleher over abortion. On May 9, of last year, Archbishop Naumann announced that Sebelius should refrain from taking communion until she repented of her position in favor of abortion and went to confession.
Sebelius is no ordinary supporter of abortion. She is a close ally of Tiller the Killer, otherwise known as Dr. George Tiller, the foremost practitioner of late term abortions in this country. The ties between Sebelius and Tiller are outlined here.
Of course none of this will take anyone by surprise, other than perhaps Doug Kmiec, and any other pro-lifers who deluded themselves into thinking last year that Obama was anything other than a dedicated enemy of the right to life of the unborn. This President has nothing but scorn for pro-lifers in general and Catholic pro-lifers in particular, as this appointment amply demonstrates.
