Statement on the Resignation of Kathleen Sebelius

Washington, DC—-Yesterday, Department of Health and Human Services secretary, pro-abortion Catholic Kathleen Sebelius, announced that she will resign.

Judie Brown, president of American Life League, the nation's oldest Catholic pro-life group, released this statement:

No tears will be shed for this woman whose resignation came exactly seven days prior to Holy Thursday, which for Catholics is the day Jesus Christ instituted the sacrament of Holy Eucharist—-the changing of bread and wine into His body and blood.

Sebelius repeatedly insulted the body of Christ by advocating for abortion, and through her support of the horrific late-term abortionist George Tiller during his life and publicly mourning for him upon his demise.

As governor of the state of Kansas, Sebelius did all within her power to stymie the state attorney general's investigations into Planned Parenthood's various deadly practices. Phill Kline, then the attorney general, exposed the absence of best practices in various Planned Parenthood dealings with patients. The Sebelius administration's opposition to Kline has been defined by many as a vendetta.

When Sebelius' bishop, Joseph F. Naumann, publicly prohibited her from receiving the body of Christ, she responded that his order was an offense against the separation of Church and state and painful to her on a personal level. Yet her belligerence persisted.

To define Sebelius as the female version of Judas Iscariot, betrayer of Jesus Christ, does not even begin to define her wrongdoing.
