FRC's Tony Perkins Challenges Sebelius' Integrity, Deep Ties to Late-Term Abortionist George Tiller
Date:4/19/2009

Perkins, a leading advocate of the sanctity of pre-born life, urged opposition to the nomination of Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to be Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as revelations continue to emerge showing deep financial ties to the abortion industry.

"Nowhere are the strong ties between the Obama Administration and the abortion industry more clearly seen than in the nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius for Secretary of Health and Human Services," Perkins said. "The depth of Gov. Sebelius' money connections to late-term abortionist George Tiller is well-known in Kansas. Now, the rest of the nation is becoming more aware as new details reveal that she has built her career with abortion industry money, including money derived from the aborting of unborn babies who could survive outside their mother's womb.

"Few if any pro-abortion politicians have received the large amount of money she has obtained from abortionists, including at least $ 35,000 in personal and PAC contributions from Dr. Tiller and another $ 200,000 that he donated to ProKanDo, a political action committee (PAC) dedicated to defeating her pro-life gubernatorial opponent.

"These connections are sordid. But there is another question whose answer we have a right to know: Did Gov. Sebelius deliberately hide these ties from Congress and the country at large?

"Her tax problems and a failure to report political contributions derived from a late-term abortionist invite serious questions about her integrity. If we can't trust Gov. Sebelius to be open and honest about her political contributions, how we can trust her to administer and improve our health care system and the largest department in the federal government?

"Issues of integrity, judgment and moral values combine to make the Sebelius nomination not just troubling but unacceptable. It is time for the Governor to withdraw her name from contention from this essential policy-making role and save both the President and the nation further embarrassment," Perkins concluded.
