Sebelius ‘Gets Owned’ on Her Religious Worldview

When U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius appeared before a House committee to testify on her department’s budget last week, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., had the Obama administration member right where he wanted her: front and center for a grilling on constitutional law and religious liberty.

Gowdy asked her to defend a public statement she had made earlier this year about a controversial HHS requirement mandating employers – despite religious objections – provide insurance with contraception coverage to employees.

Sebelius had said her department sought “appropriate balance between respecting religious freedom and increasing access to important preventive services.”
