WASHINGTON, D.C., April 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- Opposition to the nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services continues to grow as the Senate is flooded with calls, faxes, and e-mails from grassroots campaigns led by an increasing number of conservative, pro-family groups.
This opposition exploded when Operation Rescue made public, and the Associated Press reported, that Sebelius had grossly underreported to the Senate Finance Committee the amount of financial support she had received from controversial late-term abortionist George Tiller.
"We have been urging our supporters to call, e-mail, and fax their senators, and I know several other national groups have been doing the same, said Operation Rescue president Troy Newman. It is our understanding that thousands and thousands of people have been voicing their concerns that Gov. Sebelius' extreme views on abortion, and her lack of candor about them, make her unfit to head the Department of Health and Human Services."
After a surprisingly split vote in the Finance Committee on Tuesday, Sebelius' confirmation vote in the full Senate has been delayed, and may not occur before Wednesday of next week.
Just prior to this week's committee vote, Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Arizona, blasted Sebelius for her support of "comparative effectiveness," which means that costs of treatment are considered above the interests of the patient. A "comparative effectiveness" policy would mean that patients who need certain treatments could be denied them in order to save money. Sen. Kyl expressed concern over Sebelius' "lack of commitment" to patient safeguards.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
Unbelievable that she’d even be considered in the first place.
not really...look who the POTUS is and who is running the House & Senate...nothing but abortion enablers & supporters...sad, but there's gonna be at least four million more babies murdered before we can even replace Hussein!
She can be counted on to do such an inept job that our job will be much easier.
What’s really amazing is that all the people you mention claim to be Christian. Amazing how deep the delusion is these days...the Devil has done his work well.
