Sebelius confirmation stirs controversy The U.S. Senate confirmed Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services on April 28, but numerous groups continue to voice their opposition.

Sebelius’ pro-choice and sex education stance has put her at odds with Christian and conservative organization across the country such as the American Life League (ALL).

"[The Senate appointed] a woman who, wedded to the Kansas abortion lobby, helped make that state the late-term abortion capital of the world," says ALL president Judie Brown.

She adds, "In her new position as secretary of Health and Human Services, Sebelius will have the power to make the U.S. the abortion capital of the world."

Meanwhile, Concerned Women for America president Wendy Wright told Washington Independent declaring the swine flu health emergency was designed to facilitate Sebelius’ confirmation.

This sentiment was supported by the Family Research Council president Tony Perkins who vowed to continue the fight to ensure that healthcare reform "is not infected with Sebelius’s pro-abortion views."

He added the American people will not accept public funding for abortion and will oppose the violation of conscience rights, which risk driving medical personnel from their fields.
