Sibelius Under Fire From Far Right Catholic League

President Obama has nominated Kansas Governor Kathleen Sibelius to be the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. Sibelius is an excellent choice with a strong record in her state of defending woman's rights and standing up for health issues.
Sibelius is a Catholic and she has drawn heavy fire from Catholic clerics and other groups for her support of abortion rights.
Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League and a self-appointed social morals watchdog, called Sibelius an "enemy of the unborn." Donohue is an example of the "American Taliban," always ready to dictate to everyone else how they should live and always ready to judge on religion and morality.
Archbishop Joseph F. Nauman, of Kansas City, said that Sebelius' support for abortion had "grave spiritual and moral consequences." He asked that Sebelius no longer receive Communion until she repudiated her stance and made a "worthy sacramental confession."
Sibelius vetoed SB 389 in April, Sebelius wrote that the bill was problematic because it included no exceptions for pregnancies that endanger a woman's life
and it allowed for individuals to seek court orders preventing a woman from
obtaining an abortion, even if the procedure was necessary to save her life.
"I am concerned that the bill is likely unconstitutional, or even worse,
endangers the lives of women," Sebelius said in a statement.
