.- One of Kansas' leading pro-life advocates is charging that Kathleen Sebelius knowingly omitted donations from an infamous late-term abortionist in her answers to the Senate Finance Committee during recent questioning.

Kansans for Life State Executive Director, Mary Kay Culp, argued in a Monday statement that, "The $26,000 Governor Kathleen Sebelius omitted from her answer to Senator Kyl about Tiller's donations to her or her PAC, was not only a matter of public record, it was in her mailbox a week before her confirmation hearings."

The details of Tiller's donations arrived in Gov. Sebelius' mailbox in the archdiocesan paper The Leaven.

Culp pointed to the fact that the March 27th issue contained an article on page 4 entitled "Tiller campaign cash greases political wheels." One paragraph in the article said, "For instance, between 1994 and 2001 Tiller, his wife, his clinic, and an earlier PAC of his gave more than $15,000 to Sebelius. Between 2000 and 2002, Tiller and his clinic gave $23,000 to Sebelius' Blue Stem Fund PAC."

Since Gov. Sebelius belongs to the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Culp said that, "It is almost impossible to believe Sebelius didn't see this particular issue, featuring as it did a huge picture of George Tiller on the cover and a smaller picture of her holding a T-shirt memorializing his support of her last election, and featuring four related articles.

"It's simply not believable that staff or acquaintances did not tell Sebelius of the publication," she said.

Instead, the pro-life Kansan believes that it is "more likely, Sebelius thought she could successfully minimize her Tiller connection, as she had done during her first gubernatorial campaign in 2002."

During her 2002 run for Governor of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius claimed that she was not "pro-abortion" and hadn't been given hundreds of thousands of dollars by the political action committee Pro Kan Do, which the infamous late term abortionist George Tiller helped create.

A Pro Kan Do fundraising letter from Tiller reveals that on top of $200,000 he personally contributed to defeat Sebelius' opponent, he believed that another $250,000 would be needed for her to win.

Culp closed her statement by saying, "The U.S. Senate owes the public a closer and more careful examination of the nomination of Kathleen Sebelius as head of America's Health and Human Services Department..."
