From the Kansas Federalist’s Currie Myers
The most demonstrative pro-abortion governor in the history of the United States has been selected by President Obama to become the Health and Human Services Secretary. Even though I am excited to have our Governor “out of Dodge” due to her horrible tax and spend policies as well as liberal thoughts on energy, I have great concern for the impact she will have in our nation regarding health care.
As HHS secretary, Sebelius will have a major impact in crafting a health care plans that could cover abortions with taxpayer funds or require insurance companies to cover abortions in their plans. Sebelius could also, if confirmed by the Senate, issue new regulations overturning the protections President Bush put in place that protect pro-life doctors and medical centers.
Sebelius is best known for her close relationship with late-term abortionist George Tiller, who has escaped prosecution and accountability on many occasions until just recently when a Wichita judge ordered the green light that his criminal case should be tried.
As Kansas governor for 6 years now, Sebelius’ lax standards has caused criminal cases to go uninvestigated. She has also dominated liberal campaigns with tainted abortion money through her political allies, to whom Tiller has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars not only to these allies directly, but to Sebelius’ own “Blue Stem” Fund. Her position favoring abortion is so radical and extreme that Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City called her to stop receiving communion until she disowns her support for the “serious moral evil” of abortion.
Governor Sebelius vetoed a bill last April that the legislature approved that would have strengthened the state’s limits on late-term abortions. That followed by a year her veto of a bill requiring explicit medical reasons for a late abortion, which was preceded by vetoing other pro-life legislation in 2006, 2005 and 2003. She has appointed pro-abortion politicians to posts and committees that oversee agencies that investigate the violation of Kansas Laws on abortion. And she has allowed late term abortions to continue even though Kansas Law specifically does not allow the horrible procedure.
Sebelius has had secret fundraisers with Tiller and Planned Parenthood, many times at the governor’s mansion, which she failed to officially report as a campaign event. Once again using Kansas ’ taxpayer money to promote and honor abortionist and abortion related industries and to raise money for her or her friends campaign coffers.
The good news is that now the national spotlight is on Sebelius and her illegal activities will be investigated and looked at from people across the nation. They will find out that Sebelius political machine makes Chicago politics look like a day at grammar school. Sebelius is cunning and liberal. She is far from the Blue Dog Democrat that the drive by media portrays. And her day in the Obama spotlight will provide the nation with a glimpse of the embarrassment we Kansan’s call, Governor!
As HHS secretary her damage to our country’s health services will be significant and her abortion power unyielding. More abortion parties and fundraisers to come!
Except this time the event location will be 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue !
