Gov. Sebelius at Planned Parenthood Fundraiser

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius spoke this evening to the Planned Parenthood fundraiser at the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City, MO. This "Catholic" politician avoided meeting many prolifers who waited at several entrances to the Museum by using a separate entrance through the Blue Room jazz club. Some prolifers said they also saw Dr. George Tiller of Wichita, KS (who specializes in late-term abortions) enter the PP fundraiser. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S.

Catholic Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, KS has criticized Sebelius openly in his archdiocesan newspaper because of her veto of a bill that would have curbed violations of Kansas law on abortions. The Archbishop urged Catholics to pray for Sebelius to "reconsider her long-held position supporting legalized abortion." At least one pro-life sign this evening asked if Sebelius now would be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

Priests and nuns who prayed the rosary outside the PP fundraiser included Fr. Norm Weslin, who is distinguished for his many years of heroic work saving babies from abortion. He is an ex-military officer who has been arrested over 70 times for his mighty pro-life efforts. I recommend Fr. Frank Pavone's (Priests for Life) interview of Fr. Weslin here. Fr. Weslin may be most distinguished by the enemies he has made, as shown by any search of the web. I admire someone who does not fear to be hated by God's enemies.

Wolftracker also came to the protest of Planned Parenthood. Be sure and read his post here.

Great job. Your writing captured it well. Good to see you.

You and Wolftracker capture well the level of evil working here.

As a metro area, we are brimming with sinister sophistication. Missouri provides the Stowers initiative and Kansas brings us Sebelius and Tiller.

I hope the folks at the PP function enjoyed the music, as soon enough, they will have to face the music.

This is kind of a late comment but thank you for showing Fr. Weslin. I have known him along time even before he was a priest (he is a widower). Once, he was in a New York courtroom upon his arrest for rescuing and he was able to negotiate the release of his rescuers as well as the rescuers already in prison. If he was doing a rescue and any rescuer was experiencing brutality, he would literally lay in front of the rescuer and take on the brutality himself. I have felt privileged to be with Fr. Weslin for pro-life activities on both coasts and in Kansas City. I have seen this man be presecuted in other ways besides on the pro-life front and it does amaze me that he is always smiling and always joyful.
