Fact Check: Gov. Sebelius Disingenuous With Abortion Remarks

Earlier this week, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius commented on the abortion issue, saying, “While my beliefs teach me that abortion is morally unacceptable, as a public official, I have worked hard to ensure that abortions are rare, safe and within the bounds of the law.”

“Sebelius’ remarks require a serious fact check,” said Operation Rescue Senior Policy Advisor Cheryl Sullenger. “Her statement is so misleading that it is an embarrassment. Sebelius is trying to hoodwink the American people by grossly misrepresenting the reality of her radical abortion policies.”

A Mother

Mother and Child
A mother is the most important person on earth.
She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral.
She need not.
She has built something more magnificent than any Cathedral -
a dwelling for an immortal soul,
the tiny perfection of her baby's body.

Pro-Life Action League: Guttmacher Institute Report Discriminates Against Poor

( Chicago , Ill. ) – Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League says a report released today by the Guttmacher Institute takes aim at the poor by recommending more government spending on programs to reduce the birth rate.

“The Guttmacher Institute and proponents of public funding of contraception apparently think that people are the greatest drain on our resources,” said Joseph M. Scheidler, founder and national director of the Pro-Life Action League.

According to its Web site, the Guttmacher Institute operates an interrelated program of social science research, policy analysis and public education and produces a wide range of resources on topics pertaining to sexual and reproductive health. Today’s report claims public funds for family planning prevent 1.94 million pregnancies a year and advocates providing millions of young and low-income women access to voluntary contraceptive services.

“The Guttmacher Institute takes particular aim at the poor,” said Scheidler. “The assumption that people in the lower income brackets cannot take care of their children, and that their children will never contribute anything to society, is unfair and smacks of racism. This attitude that the poor should not reproduce is right out of Margaret Sanger’s playbook -- she promoted the ‘more from the fit; less from the unfit’ concept of population control.”

“John Kennedy called children our ‘greatest resource’ over forty years ago,” said Scheidler. “Even in difficult economic times, the United States is a land of opportunity for people of all income levels. It is not appropriate for government to be in the business of providing birth control, which only serves to promote risky, irresponsible behavior.”

About Pro-Life Action League

Pro-Life Action League was founded by Joseph M. Scheidler in 1980 with the aim of saving unborn children through non-violent direct action. Through prayer vigils outside abortion facilities and sidewalk counseling, the League reaches out to abortion-bound women and couples with abortion alternatives, confidential counseling and access to pregnancy resources.

Since July 2007, the League has been at the center of the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood’s flagship abortion facility in Aurora , Ill. , dubbed, “Ground Zero” of the abortion battle by abortion supporters and opponents alike. The League has closed eight abortion clinics in Chicago alone and nearly a hundred across the country.

The Pro-Life Action League is a nonprofit organization, supported solely by private donations. For more information, visit www.prolifeaction.org.
