Obama Cabinet nominee understated support from notorious abortionist

Catholic World News - April 17, 2009

Kathleen Sebelius, the Kansas governor who has been nominated by President Obama to head the Department of Health and Human Services, has drawn heavy financial support from a noted late-term abortionist. Dr. George Tiller donated $200,000 to a political-action committee that backed the 2002 Sebelius gubernatorial campaign, the pro-life activist group Operation Rescue has discovered. In testimony before the Senate, Sebelius had claimed that since 2001, "I have received no donations from Dr. Tiller or any PAC related to him."
