A.L.L. Calls on KS Senators to Stop Sebelius as Confirmation Postponed
Date:4/2/2009

WASHINGTON, April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As news emerged that Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' nomination to Health and Human Services Secretary has been postponed until the end of April, American Life League called on Kansas Senators Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts to reject the nomination.

By calling on "Senatorial Courtesy" -- the longstanding Senate tradition only confirming nominees if their home-state senators approve -- Sens. Brownback and Roberts may be able to reject the nomination and stop Sebelius.

"Sen. Brownback and Sen. Roberts have an unparalleled opportunity to keep the most rabidly pro-abortion governor in the nation away from our country's healthcare," said Shaun Kenney, executive director of American Life League. "Both of these men have long claimed the title 'pro-life,' now is the time to prove it."

American Life League rolled out a STOP Sebelius campaign in March. Thousands of supporters signed onto a STOP Sebelius petition and were activated to contact their senators and urge them to reject the nomination.

New sources originally reported the confirmation would come Thursday night, however as calls poured into Senate offices from around the country, the Senate Finance Committee decided to push back a final vote until the end of April.

"The senators are listening to the voice of their constituents," Kenney said. "But now this battle shifts to Sen. Brownback and Sen. Roberts. It remains in their power to reject the nomination of pro-abortion radical Gov. Kathleen Sebelius."

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.
