Second Kathleen Sebelius Hearing Ignores Abortion, Senate Confirmation Delayed

Washington, DC ( -- The second hearing today on pro-abortion Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, appointed by President Barack Obama to become his Health Secretary, featured no questions on the topic of abortion. Though the hearing could have had fireworks over her extreme pro-abortion position, it was decidedly dispassionate. The hearing concluded without any exchanges about her pro-abortion record or her close ties to late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, a pro-abortion Montana Democrat, says he expects the Senate to okay her nomination, but explained that the vote will be delayed. The vote probably won’t take place until after upcoming two-week recess because one senator is objecting to the nomination. “I’m afraid there’s a senator who will not grant consent so that means it has to be delayed until after the recess,” Baucus said without naming the senator. He only confirmed the objecting lawmaker is a Republican.
