HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced her resignation today. Her signature achievement is the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare. She is fleeing a sinking ship as the elections in the fall are shaping up to be a disaster for the Democrats, much of it based on reaction to ObamaCare. That Sebelius has helped destroy the Obama administration, or at least neuter it, I find to be richly ironic.
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, 2008, 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 was a close ally of the late Tiller the Killer, otherwise known as Dr. George Tiller, the foremost practitioner until his murder of late term abortions in this country. The ties between Sebelius and Tiller are outlined here.
