US cabinet official: 'We are in a war' for abortion funding

October 10, 2011

In a luncheon address to NARAL Pro-Choice America, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said that the Obama administration is fighting to ensure that abortion will be covered in health-care plans.

"We are in a war" with opponents of abortion funding, said Sebelius.

While serving in her previous job as Governor of Kansas, Sebelius, who is Catholic, was told by Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City that she should not receive Communion.

    As the HHS Secretary was cautioned by the Archbishop of KC, on wonders if Cardinal Wuerl has told her the same now that she works in DC? The bottom line, though, is how long is this type of insanity going to continue? Are politicians (and the very rich) so sacrosanct that they are allowed to ignore the Faith?

    There is a factual error in the story. The phrase "Sebelius, who is Catholic," in the last sentence would more bee accurate were it to read "Sebelius, who publicly claims to be Catholic,".
