President Obama has once again distanced himself from his campaign pledge to “find common ground” on abortion. Obama has nominated Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to be his Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Governor Sebelius’ record shows no signs that she will be willing to find common ground on common sense restrictions on abortion, rights of conscience for health care workers, or anything else for that matter. In fact Governor Sebelius is known to be a close ally of notorious Kansas late term abortionist, George Tiller.
In April 2007, Sebelius honored George Tiller and his staff in the Governor’s Mansion. The state was not reimbursed for the cost of this political event for over a year. According to records obtained by the Associated Press (AP), photographs from the event show Sebelius pointing with a smile toward Tiller, who is holding a Sebelius campaign t-shirt. Tiller is currently charged with 19 counts of performing illegal late-term abortions, and his trial begins this month.
