Time To Take Harder Look at Kathleen Sebelius

by Jack Cashill
Published in WorldNetDaily.com – April 16, 2009

Calling it an “inadvertent omission”-a phrase that rings about as true in confirmation circles as “wardrobe malfunction”– Democratic Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius (at left) fessed up on Tuesday.

The Kansas governor conceded that through her PAC and her campaign, she has cashed not the reported $12,450 in checks from the nation’s most notorious late term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller, but some $40,000. (more…)

Townhall: Tiller’s Bloody Kansas Redux

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

Townhall:

The bloodshed of the thousands of late-term abortions that Dr. George R. Tiller of Wichita, Kansas, performs each year vastly eclipses the death toll from the struggle over the slavery contest in Kansas in the years immediately prior to the Civil War. The slaughter in Tiller’s abortion clinic – by his own account he has performed over 60,000 abortions, with a “special interest” and focus on “late-term” abortions – should justly revive the label of “Bleeding Kansas.”

KFL on Tiller verdict

Call To Action

6-member jury finds Tiller not guilty but state Medical Board moves to revoke his license for same charges + fraud!

While it was frustrating that Tiller escaped conviction for 19 misdemeanors this afternoon, he is in MUCH bigger trouble right now. Tiller’s use of one doctor, dependent on him for her entire salary – was a defiant criminal act, and although the jury today didn’t see that, the state Board of Healing Arts-under a new Executive Director, Jack Confer-absolutely described that relationship as “symbiotic” and as clearly banned under the late-term law! They are charging Tiller with 11 counts of fraud, unprofessional conduct and failing to use an independent second referral. The Board has issued the first step in revoking Tiller’s medical license! No need to call yet-we’ll keep you informed. Please pray for all the members of the Board.

Women’s Right to Know & See act signed today

Gov. Sebelius quietly signed the Woman’s Right to Know and See act today, knowing it had passed by veto-proof majorities in the House and Senate. Thank you to those who contacted her, urging her to do the right thing and sign it. This is a wonderful bill insuring a woman can have access to the sonogram of her unborn child and helping stop coercion at abortion clinics. We thank all those who helped it pass, especially the bill author, Rep.Lance Kinzer.

Proud Catholic Voters on ‘Catholics for Sebelius’

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

From Proud Catholic Voters:

Proud Catholic Voters,

In this first installment of the refutation of the fraudulent claims made by the political hacks calling themselves “Catholics for Sebelius,” let’s look at the criticism of Sebelius that seems to have the most traction currently.  It also happens to be the first issue they try to defend on their website: the ties Sebelius has to Dr. George Tiller, a late-term abortion provider in Kansas who’s now facing criminal charges. Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins claims that “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.” The Liberty Council claims, “Sebelius has close ties with late-term abortionist George Tiller…Sebelius honored Tiller and his entire abortion clinic staff at the Governor’s mansion in April 2007. Tiller has contributed thousands of dollars to Sebelius and to her PAC.” Operation Rescue President Troy Newman went so far as to put it this way: “With Obama’s appointment of Gov. Sebelius to the Department of Health and Human Services, he might as well be appointing George Tiller…”

Wow!  That sounds like pretty powerful stuff, certainly enough to make mainstream America think twice about whether or not they’d care to have Sebelius overseeing health care in America!  I’ll bet Catholics for Sebelius pulled out all the stops and brought forth all the evidence they could conjure to dispel such an argument, dedicating page after page of web space to shooting down these allegations.

Kathleen Sebelius: ‘Abortion industry’s top governor’

Friday, March 6th, 2009

Jennifer Giroux at Human Events:

Last year, Planned Parenthood boasted in a Wall Street Journal story they would spend an unprecedented $10 million in the 2008 election cycle to make sure they elected strong allies at all levels of government. With the election of President Obama and a long chain of Planned Parenthood affiliated cabinet and staff members, the investment has paid off.

The crown jewel for Planned Parenthood’s portfolio is the appointment of Governor Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas as Secretary of Health and Human Services, deceptively presented in an Associated Press article on February 28 as a lovable Democratic governor “reaching across the aisle” to do whatever she can to “minimize abortion;” the article even credits her with the 9% drop in abortions from 2002-2007.

As she now takes center stage, it is important that pro-lifers pull back the curtain and allow America an unfiltered look at what really went on in Kansas under the watch of Governor Sebelius in the state known as “the abortion capital of the world.”

KFL on still-unresolved case with illegal late-term abortions

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

From KFL:

Judge Clark Owens rejects the motion to dismiss the charges against Tiller.

About a year ago, Tiller’s attorneys made a motion to dismiss all the charges against Dr. George Tiller, the infamous late-term abortionist in Wichita.  The attorneys called witness after witness including two former Attorneys General.  They questioned every document and questioned every witness until all options were exhausted.  They made several implications, innuendos, and suppositions about the charges trying to detract from the actual evidence.

Judge Clark Owens listened patiently to all the witnesses and all the arguments.  Seldom did he overrule an objection and actually extended extra time to Tiller’s attorneys when they requested it.  Judge Owens studied voluminous documents.

The result:  The highest paid attorneys, working for the infamous George Tiller, presenting their best case and bringing all their powerful influence; could not get the charges dismissed.  The Rule of Law is still alive in Sedgwick County.

Tiller will be going to trial.

AND he will be tried on the evidence and the merits of the case – period.

Finally, be aware that Tiller’s attorneys do not want the real evidence submitted to the Court, so we are sure there will be many more objections, appeals, and other antics designed to delay the inevitable.

But today, we thank God for Judge Owens’ ruling.

Ms. Magazine covers abortionist Tiller

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Ms. Magazine:

A motion by Dr George Tiller’s lawyers to dismiss the criminal case against him was denied yesterday by Sedgwick County District Judge Clark Owens. This pre-trial motion sought to dismiss criminal charges against Dr. Tiller of Wichita, Kansas for allegedly violating a state law requiring an “independent” second physician’s concurring opinion before performing later term abortions. Tiller is an abortion provider who is one of the few late-term abortion providers in the US that serves women with troubled pregnancies and complicated health problems.

Current Kansas Attorney General Steve Six has criticized the investigation of Tiller by Kline, but has said the charges against Tiller should stand, according to the Associated Press. In his decision, Judge Owens wrote that Kline’s “procedures have certainly been questioned by the Kansas Supreme Court, but his conduct in the investigation does not merit the sanction of the dismissal of the charges or suppression of evidence, according to the Wichita Eagle.
