AZ Right to Life: Pro-abortion, Pro-euthanasia Sebelius confirmed as Secretary of Health & Human Services

You don't get much further left on abortion than Sebelius.

The US Senate confirmed 65-31 Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius Tuesday as the new Secretary of the federal Health & Human Services Department (HHS), which oversees federal regulatory giants FDA & CDC. President Obama nominated the highly controversial pro-abortion governor on March 2nd of this year, drawing intense opposition from national and local pro-life organizations.

Arizona Right to Life president Jinny Perron said, "We are deeply saddened and shocked that the new HHS Secretary promotes the horrific procedure of dismemberment, poisoning and killing of our pre-born children--to the long-term detriment of their mothers and our nation."

Sebelius campaigned for Kansas governor using under-reported funds from the abortion industry, including the notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller who is currently facing disciplinary action from the Kansas Board of Healing Arts that could revoke his medical license.

"It is disconcerting to us that women support legal abortion when national and local statistics prove the majority of babies being aborted overall targets our girl babies and our minority brothers and sisters," said Perron.

In addition to her clearly pro-abortion views, Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) said in the Senate Finance Committee hearing and Senate floor debate that he opposed the nomination of Sebelius on the grounds of her support for healthcare rationing, which would lead to euthanasia. "This should be a matter of concern for every American," he said.

Kyl said that Sebelius "made clear that the administration and [HHS] under her watch would be unwilling to support patient safeguards. [Sebelius] did not provide any assurance that [HHS], federal health care programs, or any new government entity... will not use [comparativeUS Sen. Jon Kyl condemns Sebelius effectiveness research] to ration or deny care."

Kyl warned, "We must not enable a panel of Washington bureaucrats to decide who is eligible for a particular treatment or when they can get it."

Please support our life-affirming efforts as we prepare to oppose the nomination of Dawn Johnson who, once confirmed, will also join in the advancement of this Administration's radical abortion agenda.

Any amount will help in the fight to protect innocent human life.
