Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement after Gov. Kathleen Sebelius vetoed a pro-life bill that increases reporting requirements for doctors who perform late-term abortions and allows lawsuits against them if a patient later comes to believe such a procedure was illegal.
"Governor Sebelius has placed the interests of late-term abortionists ahead of the lives of viable unborn children. It's that simple. It's clear that Governor Sebelius is unburdened by any concern for the well-being of women and their pre-born children.
"Her ties to the late-term abortion industry appear to be even stronger than her desire to be the head of the Department of Health and Human Services. If you want a preview of President Obama's health care plan, take a look at Governor Sebelius's record.
"Each U.S. senator must decide whether they will give support to a nominee who gives so little concern to the killing of near-term babies. We call on the U.S. Senate to reject her nomination, stand up for integrity, and call on President Obama to offer a nominee without such ethical baggage."
