Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, a self-professed Catholic, said this week that abortion restrictions are wrong because the choice should be a discussion between women, their doctors, and “their priests.”

“I'm alarmed about restrictions being passed by various legislators that take out of the control of women and their partners and their doctors and their priests, their own decision about their own healthcare,” she said. “I think women should make their own decisions and have a range of options available to them.”

The Catholic Church opposes abortion as a form of murder. 

The remarks are reminiscent of Nancy Pelosi's recent gaffe, in which she spoke of the issue of late-term abortion as “sacred ground.” Pelosi also professes to be a devout and practicing Catholic.

Sebelius has a long history of support for abortion. In her previous role as governor of Kansas, she was known for her cozy relationship with the abortion industry, particularly late-term abortionist George Tiller. 

She has also been a driving force behind the implementation of the HHS mandate, which requires all employers to pay for contraceptives, abortifacient drugs, and sterilizations – all of which the Catholic Church opposes.
