FRC Action Questions President Obama's Choice of Gov. Sebelius for HHS

WASHINGTON, March 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This weekend President Obama decided on Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D) to be his pick to be the new Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Tony Perkins, President of FRC Action, the legislative arm of Family Research Council, had this to say:

"President Obama is now zero for two in attempting to pick qualified people to head up his Health and Human Services Department (HHS) and zero for four in defending proven methods that contribute to his stated goal of reducing abortions.

"In a little over a month President Obama has reinstated taxpayer funding of abortionists overseas, been complicit in both the increased taxpayer funding of abortionists in the United States and in the overturning of a long-standing policy that prevented taxpayer dollars from going toward international coercive abortion programs. This weekend the cause for life was struck a double blow by first the halting of conscience protections for health care professionals who might otherwise be forced to perform or assist in abortions and the naming of the extremely pro-abortion Gov. Sebelius to HHS.

"In her time as an elected official in Kansas, Mrs. Sebelius has fought against popular pro-life measures such as parental consent and efforts to curb late-term abortions. Additionally she has had a close personal and financial association with the nation's most infamous abortion doctor, George Tiller, who specializes in late-term abortions and, by his own count, has performed over 60,000 abortions.

"FRC Action will work to oppose Gov. Sebelius' appointment and continue to work with those who truly wish to stop the blight of abortion. Our nation's need for health care reform that is family-centered, life-affirming and available to all Americans in a free market is great, and these goals are ill-served by this unfortunate and objectionable nomination."
