FRC: Urge "NO" Vote on Pro-Abortion Governor; Me: Magnify Your Efforts

The following is from the Family Research Council. You all know that Obama has filled his Cabinet with people with ethical challenges. They fly through without any major challenges. It seems that we are fighting against the wind as we write, call, fax our opposition to the many actions by Obama, Pelosi, Reid and friends.

I have a suggestion. Rather than JUST sending petitions to Washington D.C. and contacting our elected representatives, let's also contact every media outlet we can imagine. Not just this time, but every time you have a concern.

If you call your Senator, call the local news stations, too. If you write your Congressman, write every media outlet you can find (radio, television, newspaper, etc.). Duplicate everything you do ten-fold.

They're saying the opposition isn't there. They're ignoring our pleas for ethical representation. They're treating us like pesky flies that can be swatted away. Let's show them.

Magnify everything you do.

Get the addresses for every media outlet you can find and make sure you copy them when you send your letters. Get the email addresses of every national and local news outlet you can dig up and copy them on every email you send in protest.

Let's overwhelm them. Let's make it impossible for them to ignore us or swat us away.

Here's the email on Sebelius. We need to do everything possible to stop her from being confirmed. Time is short.

Time is running out to stop the confirmation of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be President Obama's Secretary of Heath and Human Service. A floor vote in the U.S. Senate is imminent and your signature is urgently needed on our petition to block this nominee. Gov. Sebelius has compiled a record that is anti-woman and anti-life, yet President Obama has chosen her not only to lead the federal government's largest agency but to oversee a massive expansion of the government's role in health care.

Troubling news about Gov. Sebelius continues to pour in. Her close alliance with Kansas's abortion industry has been known, but the extent of her ties, as now revealed, suggest that she may owe her entire political career to the huge sums this industry spent on and gave to her campaigns for public office. In particular, the notorious George Tiller, who has established his Wichita, Kansas facility as a national hub for second- and third-trimester abortions, helped launch Gov. Sebelius by:

Donation $200,000 in abortion proceeds to his own political action committee in Kansas in 2002, making it the largest PAC in the state and a primary supporter of Sebelius's.

Raising $70,000 from other Kansas abortionists for this fund to support Sebelius.

Donating more than $23,000 directly to Sebelius's own campaign committee, after which, as governor, she vetoed legislation that would have guaranteed minimum health standards to protect women in the state's abortion mills.

This record underscores how beholden Sebelius is to the ugliest business in America. It renders her unfit for any office, but particularly to lead the agency charged with protecting our families' health.

Please click here to watch the video I've made about the Tiller-Sebelius pipeline and to sign our petition to Senate leaders. We have no time to lose to prevent one of the worst Cabinet choices in U.S. history.

Thank you and God bless you.

Watch the video on the Tiller-Sebelius pipeline and sign our petition urging Senate leaders to reject the nomination of pro-abortion Gov. Sebelius.
