Pro-Life Stalwart Bownback to Support Radically Pro-Abort Sebelius?
Patrick Archbold reports at "Brownback Turns His Back - On Unborn":
During last year's primaries, many Catholics and pro-lifers supported Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback. This was in large part due to his prominent and vocal support for the pro-life cause. That is why the following absolutely boggles the mind.My Comments:
Our friend Leticia Velasquez is beside herself due to this pro-life hero's deplorable about face and provide likely (but pathetic) answer to the looming question, why?It hurts to have pro-life heroes in Congress. Only a month after my group KIDS gave the Senator a pro-life award for his work on the "Prenatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act" he does this; striking a mortal blow to pro-life opposition to Gov Sibelius's nomination.Governor Sebelius is everything that is wrong about politicians and in particular Catholic politicians and her nomination ought to be vigorously opposed. The Sen. Brownback we thought we knew would know that. If he did this for the sake of political expediency, he has more to answer to than just the voters. Remember Senator, what profiteth a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?
What are you thinking, Sen Brownback? Do you want her out of your way so you can become governor or Kansas? Isn't there any way to do this without selling out your pro-life ideals and your newfound Catholic faith?

I was a big Brownback backer during the primaries. This is more than disappointing and discouraging to pro-lifers like myself.
