The Abortion Party
Despicable Behavior by Kansas’ Democrat Governor

Every once in a while, it's instructive to point out how despicably pro-abortion the Democrat Party is. A case in point is what has happened in Kansas at the hands of Democrat Governor Kathleen Sebelius. Sebelius is often described as a "moderate" who, syndicated columnist Robert Novak points out, won election in 2002 with the help of a former Republican state chairman as her running mate, and was re-elected in 2006 in a landslide. She is being touted in some quarters as a potential running mate for Barack Obama. ("A Pro-Choicer's Dream Veep," The Washington Post, 5/26/08) They would certainly be birds of a feather.

Sebelius vetoes any pro-life legislation that makes it to her desk. On April 21 she vetoed a bill passed by 2 to 1 margins in both houses of the Kansas Legislature that would strengthen the state's ban on late-term abortions by authorizing private lawsuits against providers. Last year, according to Mr. Novak, she vetoed a bill requiring explicit medical reasons for a late-term abortion, and she vetoed other pro-life bills in 2006, 2005, and 2003.

Most pro-lifers are familiar with the work of pro-life District Attorney Phill Kline, who spent eight years in the Kansas Legislature championing pro-life legislation and later, after winning election as state attorney general, aggressively pursued prosecution against abortion providers, mainly Planned Parenthood. Kathleen Sebelius recruited Paul Morrison, at that time the Republican District Attorney in Johnson County, to run against Kline. Morrison won with substantial funding from the abortion industry including ProKanDo PAC, established by partial-birth abortionist George Tiller. Phill Kline went on to win the seat vacated by Morrison and, as Johnson County District Attorney, brought 107 charges against Planned Parenthood including allegations of "unlawful late-term abortions." The battle continues with Sebelius judicial and executive appointees sabotaging Kline's efforts, with the Kansas Supreme Court barring a key witness from testifying.

On Wednesday, May 29, news outlets reported that a "lavish secret party" was held at the Governor's mansion for abortionist Tiller and his staff and other abortionists. The event was held on April 9, 2007 according to the Associated Press. Tiller, who is one of the very few abortionists still performing partial-birth abortions, is still under investigation by the Attorney General's office. Sebelius claimed that the party was an auction prize, won by Tiller at a function hosted by the Greater Kansas City Women's Political Caucus. Operation Rescue researched her claims and announced that they are not supported by documentation and, "There is not one shred of evidence to support Gov. Sebelius' claims."

According to the Greater Kansas City Women's Political Caucus Political Action Committee expenditure reports on file with the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission, auction receipts benefited the PAC, yet there is no evidence of any contribution from George Tiller, his wife, Jeanne, or his abortion clinic Women's Health Care Services, in 2006 or 2007. Operation Rescue acquired a receipt that shows that the State of Kansas paid for the April 9, 2007 dinner with George Tiller. There is no documented reimbursement from the GKC Women's Political Caucus to the State of Kansas for anything in either 2006 or 2007, according to their PAC reports, nor was any evidence of that reimbursement provided to Operation Rescue by the Governor's office in response to their Open Records request for information. (Operation Rescue Press Release, 5/29/08)

In another development, Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, whose Roman Catholic Diocese covers northeast Kansas, called on Governor Kathleen Sebelius, a Catholic, to stop presenting herself for Holy Communion until she disowns her support for the "serious moral evil" of abortion.
