Operation Rescue Launches Opposition to Gov. Sebelius' Confirmation as HHS Secretary

Operation Rescue has vowed to contest today's nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services with opposition to her confirmation.

"We are working to raise a unified voice in the pro-life/pro-family community against the confirmation of Gov. Sebelius," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "Sebelius' close connections to the abortion lobby, especially late-term abortionist George Tiller make her unfit to serve."

Because many are unaware of Sebelius' extremist support of the most radical of abortion policies Operation Rescue has produced a website page that fully documents her abortion entanglements.

"The documentation we present proves that Sebelius should not be confirmed to any post that would affect abortion policy," said Newman.

The web page contains information about Sebelius' radical abortion support dating back over twenty years. It documents:

-- Sebelius' ties to Tiller, who currently faces 19 criminal charges of
having committed illegal late-term abortions. It lists shady campaign
contributions from Tiller and shows evidence of a secret party she
held in his honor.

-- Powerful video clips from The O'Reilly Factor with a shocking
interview of a former Tiller patient, and O'Reilly stating that
Sebelius is not fit to serve. The videos show her support of Tiller
places her at the leftist fringe of radical abortion policy.

-- Sebelius' politically-motivated meddling in a Medical Board
investigation of Tiller regarding the 3rd trimester abortion death of
Christin Gilbert.

-- Sebelius' defiance of the Catholic Church and Archbishop Joseph
Naumann's stern warning for her to refrain from Holy Communion until
she makes amends for her support of abortion.

-- Sebelius' poor judgment in choosing political partners and
appointments that have later been embroiled in charges of corruption.

-- Sebelius' opposition to common sense legislation that would have held
abortion clinics to standards of safety and cleanliness, and opposed
notifying women coerced into abortions of their right to refuse.

"With Obama's appointment of Gov. Sebelius to the Department of Health and Human Services, he might as well be appointing George Tiller, because Tiller is the one that will be pulling her strings," said Newman. "Sebelius' involvement in Kansas abortion scandals and her indebtedness to the corrupt abortion lobby makes her unfit to serve. We urge our supporters to begin contacting their Senators now to voice opposition to Sebelius' confirmation."
