Topeka — The Roman Catholic archbishop of Kansas City, Kan., calls Gov. Kathleen Sebelius nomination for health and human services secretary “particularly troubling.”
Archbishop Joseph Naumann said Wednesday that he is “concerned personally” for Sebelius, who was tapped by President Barack Obama for the Cabinet position.
Naumann last year urged Sebelius, who is Catholic, to stop taking communion because of her support of abortion rights.
In his comments published in The Catholic Key blog, Naumann said Sebelius would be in a position to make decisions “promoting legalized abortion and her cooperation in this intrinsic evil.”
Some Catholic groups say they’re organizing opposition to the Sebelius appointment.
