Sebelius hosts Tiller and staff at guv’s mansion

On May 26, columnist Robert Novak wrote about “the leading prospect to become Barack Obama’s running mate,” pro-abort KS Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.
Novak quoted a disclaimer Sebelius wrote when vetoing a pro-life measure in 2006: “My Catholic faith teaches me that life is sacred. Personally, I believe abortion is wrong.”
sebelius tiller 1.JPGEarlier this month, KS Archbishop Joseph Naumann wrote an open letter to Sebelius asking her not to receive communion due to her pro-abortion stance. He stated Sebelius indicated she felt resigned to support abortion: “The governor has spoken to me on more than one occasion about her obligation to uphold state and federal laws and court decisions.”
Sebelius has an odd way of living out her personally-pro-life-but-obligated-to-be-pro-abort position.
Yesterday Operation Rescue released photos taken at a party hosted by Sebelius on April 9, 2007, for infamous late-term abortionist George Tiller and staff at the governor’s mansion. OR stated its source said the party was “exclusively in Tiller’s honor.”…


Sebelius responded that Tiller had won the dinner by outbidding all others at a Greater KS City Women’s Political Caucus auction, also indicating her hands were clean:

And it is not something that I invite the bidder to bid. It’s not something that I choose the guests. It’s been a tradition… for a variety of groups whose causes I support: We offer an opportunity to come to lunch at Cedar Crest, come to dinner at Cedar Crest. The expenses are reimbursed, and this just happened to be one of them.

tiller 2.jpgOne problem is at the time Tiller was under criminal investigation. Those particular charges were later dropped but new charges added, meaning Tiller is still under criminal investigation.
Another problem is “[h]er use of a taxpayer-funded facility to honor an individual whose money has fueled her campaigns and personal agenda is appalling,” according to Kris Kobach, KS GOP chair, as quoted by LJWorld.com.
The latter charge is sticking a tad. In an expected Sebelius-supportive editorial today, The Wichita Eagle did take her to task for that but closed with a statement to send chills down pro-lifers’ spines:

If nothing else, the past few days have removed all doubt that Sebelius is considered by some to be a serious contender to be Barack Obama’s running mate. If she weren’t, she would not be worthy of this national media kerfuffle.

Chatter about Sebelious’ near top spot on the Democrat ticket is certainly germane here. But still the fact is Sebelius is getting negative national press for her association with an infamous late-term abortionist. And Obama, already vulnerable on this issue, doesn’t need the added aggravation. If Obama doesn’t pick Sebelius, it will be telling, and if he does, it will helpful to our side, providing even more fodder.

  1. “If Obama doesn’t pick Sebelius, it will be telling, and if he does, it will helpful to our side, providing even more fodder.”
    Except that they might win. How will that be “helpful” to your side?

  2. Gotta hand it to Operation Rescue; leave it to them to get extremely inside scoops and footage to boot.

  3. Could you imagine the dinner time conversation? The wife: “So, how many babies did you kill today?” Tiller: “They aren’t babies. They are feti.”

  4. Karen at the Families against Planned Parenthood web site is asking for everyone’s special prayers. A 14 year old couple is scheduled to have an abortion at 7 AM tomorrow (Friday) morning. They are being pressured by their parents. Please pray that they change their minds and do not go through with the abortion.

  5. She had dinner with Tiller the Killer ? YUK !
    Please let her be Senator Death’s VP running or should we more accurately describe her as his killing mate. There can be no equivocating on that vote: NO to Double Death.

  6. Well, luckily for us, the majority of people of voting age who actually show up to the polls on voting day understand that this whole “choosing the leaders of the free world” deal is more than just a popularity contest. But even if it was, making a big deal about the outspoken support of late-term abortion on demand for any reason would do us a big favor, seeing as how the popularity of such operations among the general population is roughly on par with AIDS, or Hitler stomping on a sack full of puppies. Anyone watch [adult swim] lately? I’d say this is a “point: dog” moment. (I encourage you all to check out cat VS dog)

  7. Isn’t it interesting that it isn’t nearly as interesting to speculate about who John McCain’s running mate will be? You all are so atwitter about Obama and company…what about your guy? Who should McCain pick? Lieberman? Hagee? Darth Cheney? (no term limits for VP that I am aware of, although with a 9% approval rating he wouldn’t bring much to the ticket) How about Alan Keyes? (he and Obama could fight a rematch of the 2004 Senate campaign) Let’s hear your suggestions.

  8. Ray,
    I’ll give you my suggestions for McCain VP (and no I wouldn’t recommend somebody as evil as Darth Cheney), but first I would appreciate if you would respond to a post I made to you a couple weeks ago about abortion and “evil”. I’ll repost it again below for you.
    ******
    I do believe that evil exists, but I do not believe that abortion is evil. Sad, yes, but not evil. If I thought it was evil, I wouldn’t be out there defending with my physical presence.

    Ray, I can think of nothing more intrinsically evil then a woman intentionally killing the child inside her womb. What is your definition of evil?

  9. Ray, I think it’s more a matter of us being more likely to be mature enough to accept almost anyone (almost) who pretty much shares our platform. It’s just so much more fun to watch the Dems tear themselves apart over this kind of thing. Although, my dream ticket this year is McCain/Thompson, even though I doubt it’d happen, and I’d settle for Romney. And, I totally noticed you changing the subject to move the heat off of a liberal pro-aborter and her actions which are a clear demonstation of a lack of morals/integrity. Nice.

  10. YIKES! My browser just totally screwed up, and I am SO sorry for the triple post, everyone.

  11. Janet: If they don’t want to have the abortion they need to leave the hostile environment IMMEDIATELY!
    This has been my experience. The only way to take the pressure to abort off the woman is to remove her from the environment where she can think things through and calm down. When I was counselling any time we watched a couple go back into the hostile environment, whether it was parents or husband etc. she usually succumbed to the pressure to abort and was back at the clinic the very next day.
    The only way to save the baby is to save the woman first.

  12. I don’t think Sebelius and Tiller talk about feti. I think they likely talk about their lovely cars, homes and vacations that they can afford.
    I think there’s probably a big disconnect between what their support for abortion and their wealth and privilege. What an eye-opener death will be!

  13. I think McCain should pick anyone that wants to send our troops out to die…..and prove to everyone that is he is PRO LIFE. Vote for McCain = Kill more muslim babies

    Patricia,
    This sounds like an excellent idea. The problem here is the couple is only 14 years old. Can a relative or friend legally move her from her home without her parents’ consent?

  15. My bet for Obama’s running mate: Governer Ted Strickland (D-Oh).
    If the Republicans do not win Ohio, they cannot win the presidency.

  16. Janet; No, I agree. However, what we use to do was go back to the home with the teens and speak directly to the parents (sometimes without much luck). The intent was to try to impress upon them that this was a baby (often referred to as an “it”) and that it was their grandchild. For most parents it was a matter of getting rid of the “evidence” of sexual activity of their child – that is literally how the whole situation was viewed.
    I can’t imagine being 14 and being pregnant. Even worse, I can’t imagine what this young girl will suffer should she have the abortion.

  17. Sounds like the valuable $1 Billion abstinence program didn’t work for them….Darn the luck!

  18. Vote for McCain = Kill more muslim babies

    ==========================================
    Vote for either Obama or Clinton = kill more AMERICAN babies…think about THAT!

  19. Nope PeachPit. Sounds to me like the BC pills, condoms, jellies and foams along with the sex manuals and movies they saw in school didn’t help them either.

  20. Sounds like the valuable $1 Billion abstinence program didn’t work for them….Darn the luck!

    We don’t know what program was in their school, we don’t know the details, so it’s too quick to make judgements on abstinence programs from this one case. However, no matter how much you spend, if the media, parents, teachers, entertainment,etc… doesn’t cooperate in spreading the message, it’s going to be a tough sell.

  21. Heather, I agree. I can’t imagine being married to him. It must be horrible. What is she thinking?
    That’s actually the governor’s mansion. She hosted a dinner for him. That is just sick, especially when when she claims to be pro-life herself. (Could she secretly be trying to convert him?) :) Lord have mercy. We must keep them in our prayers.

  22. Janet, OOOOOHHHH okay. got it. Or do I? Still, it’s an ugly house, and it would be nice if the man could be converted.

  23. Heather, if you put Tiller in, I get to put in Warren Jeffs and Rick Santorum. (YIKES..)

  24. PeachPit: So…Let me get this straight…The war serves no purpose, and we are engaged in it only to intentionally kill our own soldiers and “muslim babies”…? That’s a stupid supposition. This military action must look very odd to you through the film of your ignorance…from what you’ve said, I imagine our soldiers leaping out of planes sans parachutes while holding babies. You do realize our guys aren’t the ones hiding in mosqes/schools/hospitals shooting people, or blowing themselves up in marketplaces full of civilians? Also, you understand that not all Iraqi/Arab babies are muslim? Your tone and rhetoric reminds me of some indoctrinated high schooler trying to act like they know/care about politics so the P Diddy set thinks they’re cool.

  25. The Dems are going to have Clinton and Obama on the ticket, but for the fun of it I’ll bite and speculate about other possibilities.
    Sebelius as Obama’s VP pick will prove that he is not serious about winning. And then there is Jim Webb. Perhaps Virginians were not swayed by George Allen’s suggestion that Webb was not fit to serve as their senator because of Webb’s writings, but will the rest of the country be so inclined?

  26. Sebelius reimbursed for Tiller party only 10 days ago

    I reported May 29 on a private party pro-abort KS Gov. Kathleen Sebelius hosted for late-term abortionist George Tiller and staff on April 9, 2007. Whoops, the plot thickens, as it always does when involving KS and abortion. Timeline: April…

  27. Will Sebelius’ abortion stance abort her chance as Obama VP?

    On June 11 CBS News moved pro-abortion KS Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to the top of the list of Barack Obama’s prospective running mates. Pro-lifers await the day, as a Kansas City Star editorial columnist surprisingly got right on July 10….
