An Appalling Senate Vote

Seldom has the Senate confirmed such an appalling presidential nominee as the new Secretary of Health and Human Services. Kathleen Sebelius, the Governor of Kansas, was recently sworn in. She has such a sordid history with late-term abortion, it truly challenges reason why America’s senators would vote to confirm her nomination—giving her broad authority over the area of our nation’s health care.

Tragically, some of those senators have pro-life records.

As Governor of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius has worked to oppose: parental notification before a minor daughter can have a surgical abortion, waiting periods before having an abortion, and informed consent. She has vetoed pro-life legislation that would have afforded women basic health care protections in abortion facilities, as well as one requiring specific medical reasons for a late-term abortion. Just before becoming Secretary of HHS, she vetoed a bill that would have required that abortionists provide statistical information to the state when doing late-term abortions.

Kathleen Sebelius has strong ties to the notorious late-term abortionist in Wichita, KS, George Tiller (also known as “Tiller the Killer”). Women from throughout the nation come to him for late-term abortions. He has faced multiple federal charges for doing illegal late-term abortions.

Ms. Sebelius’ confirmation hearings revealed that she underpaid her taxes by thousands of dollars. She also greatly under-reported the campaign contributions given to her by George Tiller. It was three times more than she reported under oath. She also failed to report that George Tiller had personally given $200,000 to a political action committee to elect her. Governor Sebelius even held a secret party at the governor’s mansion in honor of this late-term abortionist.

Kathleen Sebelius is not just pro-abortion, she’s a pro-abortion activist, with a special advocacy for late-term abortion.

Here’s a link to how each senator voted on the confirmation of Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of HHS: www.lifeissues.org/breakingnews/2009/Sebelius_Votes.htm. I’ve highlighted in red the pro-life senators who voted to support her nomination. Click on their names and it will provide a link to contact information (email, phone, address) so you can express your grave disappointment in their vote. They MUST be held accountable for supporting such a radically pro-abortion nominee.

Unless these senators hear from you, they’ll be more inclined to cast additional votes against unborn babies. Please contact them today.

Sincerely for the babies,
