Fr. Pavone: Sebelius’ Support for Abortion Contradicts Purpose of Health and Human Services

Priests for Life


Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented as follows on the nomination of Kathleen Sebelius for Secretary of Health and Human Services:

“It is not appropriate that an individual who supports abortion occupy this post. Abortion has nothing to do with health. There is no disease that abortion cures and there is no medical benefit to the procedure. Both Kathleen Sebelius and Barack Obama should know better.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
