(CNSNews.com) -- Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who supports abortion, was heckled and called a murderer by a pro-life activist as she gave a speech to graduating students on Friday at Georgetown University, the nations oldest Catholic academic institution.

I got a message for you Kathleen Sebelius: Youre a murderer, abortion is murder! yelled the heckler as he was being escorted out of the room by campus police. The young activist told CNSNews.com that he goes by the name of David Lewis.
Alluding to Biblical scripture, Lewis also yelled across the room towards Sebelius, We can better have millstones hung around your neck murderer.
Luke 17:2 states, It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones [children] to sin.
During the speech, Sebelius quoted John. F. Kennedys famous 1960 speech about his Catholic religion and views on the separation of church and state.
CNSNews.com spoke with Lewis outside the universitys gate. He said he is not a Georgetown student but is a member of a pro-life group called The Society of Truth and Justice, led by pro-life activist Randall Terry, who is running in the Democratic primary against Obama.
Lewis said he was escorted off campus and asked by university authorities to sign a paper saying he could not come back to the institution for a year. Violating that agreement would get him arrested, he said.
CNSNews.com asked Lewis why he interrupted Sebelius speech.
Georgetown University claims to be a Catholic school and its an outrage that somebody that supports the murder of unborn babies would be invited, and somebody has to stand up for the babies and if its not this Catholic University then its got to be Christians, said Lewis.
Babies are being killed in womb up to nine months and Sebelius supports that and this school invites her here, so I hope this is a teaching moment, said Lewis.
The office of the archdiocese of Washington, D.C., criticized Georgetown for inviting Sebelius to speak given her departments implementation of a mandate requiring that nearly all health insurance policies pay for sterilizations and contraceptives, including those that induce abortions. Georgetown, a Catholic school, is run by Jesuits.
Randall Terrys group was expected to protest Sebelius speech. They were provided a space outside the university gates to do so.
In a May 7 statement by the group announcing their protest at Georgetown, Terry said, "This is an outrage. The correct response is rage. People saw what we did at Notre Dame; we are coming to Georgetown University and perhaps we will not be so moderate."
Sebelius is well known for her support of the right to procured abortion and for her public association with some of the more notorious agents of the culture of death, said Burke.
As a Roman Catholic, her appointment is the source of the greatest embarrassment because she has publicly and repeatedly betrayed her Catholic faith, in the most fundamental tenet of the moral law, that is, the law to safeguard and foster human life from the moment of its inception to the moment of natural death, Burke said.
What is more, she has obstinately remained in her moral error after being admonished by, at least, three of her bishops he added.
In a May 14 statement defending the decision to invite Sebelius to speak at Georgetown, the schools president, John DeGioia, said, The Secretarys presence on our campus should not be viewed as an endorsement of her views. As a Catholic and Jesuit University, Georgetown disassociates itself from any positions that are in conflict with traditional church teachings.
Hardly the definition of a heckler. More like a truth sayer.
She chose to go to Georgetown because she knew she could easily embarrass them.
She succeeded until the fine gentleman showed up and let folks know who she really is.
If the Pope only had an email account, these things would not happen.
Dohbama is punishment to America for murdering our babies..
YET “cut to the quick” about dogs and cats being culled at humane shelters..
America has gone quite insane.. maybe New Sodom...
I cannot, for the life of me, reason how people like sebelius have the gall to call themselves Catholic.
She is worse than a murderer. She’s a baby killer depriving new Americans of their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
” Cardinal Raymond Burke, archbishop emeritus of St. Louis, MO, and prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura at the Vatican.Cardinal Raymond Burke, head of the highest court at the Vatican and a former bishop of St. Louis, Mo., said of Kathleen Sebelius in 2009: Whether Governor Sebelius is in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, or in any other diocese, she should not present herself for Holy Communion, because after pastoral admonition, she obstinately persists in serious sin. “

Pelosi, and many others.
A bigger facilitator and encourager of the killing of the unborn has these shores seen in one person???
Many of these “catholics” are old hippies. The younger members of the Church are more conservative.
the hippies are ruining our country. IMOP
You can't legislate morality but you certainly don't need to fund immorality.
Sebelius has been excommunicated by her Kansas Bishop.
Not to worry — she’s not a Catholic due to that action by a Bishop with a spine.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Just like they want photos of cancerous lungs on packs of cigarettes there should be thousands of photos of dead babies on the outside walls of abortion mills.
Come on, I mean after all, is it not always the left who want us informed of every calorie, contagion, pollutant... well fine show all the baby killers past/present/future the bodies.
Freedom of speech has be rewritten into Freedom from speech by our politicians. All who will not sit down and shut up to be told what to do will be escorted from the building.
The baby (fetus for socialists) is not going to be born a pony, duck.....only human.
They don't care if they were possibly killing the next Stalin, because, well human babies aren't born a socialist....they're made into one, by the state.
Socialism loves pandering to needy lifeforms....that it created in it's own image.
A journalist acquaintance that I still email was upset by an article I send him that was unrelated to the subject at hand....but, he castigated about Republicans and “What right do Republicans have to legislate a woman's vagina!!!!”.
I responded that “It's murder”.
He still emails but hasn't responded the it yet.
Or, legalize immorality....but, therein lies the rub....it's not the separation of church and state, it is the separation of state from church.
Church can influence state all it wants.
But, if laws are not based in morality, then you have “Good Pedophiles”, on every block, coming to you soon.
If morality is subject to the rational mind without God, then morality is in a state of situational and generational degeneration.
If the Pope would punish those that allow things like Sebelius’s speaking engagement to happen this would not happen.
What’s the Pope supposed to do to Georgetown University?
Excommunicate the leadership......of course, if he had an email account he could have effectively communicated what he would like to have happen and possibly avoid all this disharmony after the fact. There does not appear to be top down leadership the Catholic church. Bemoaning after the fact, is not leadership.

Sebelius probably wants this guys head on a platter too, or wishes he had been aborted.
Shame on this phony Catholic georgetown university!
And God bless this courageous speaker of the truth (which always angers satan and his truth-hating deluded abettors).
Whats the Pope supposed to do to Georgetown University?
If the correct tone was previously set ,, and it hasn’t been ,,, he would have to do very little or nothing... the fact is this DOES run downhill.. The church should be polite to the politicians but NOT deferential. That Sebelius is allowed to speak there is sending a bad message.
