Forty years after his book "The Exorcist" rocked America, author William Peter Blatty is upset by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and her obsession with promoting abortion. To him, abortion is "demonic." He's someone who would know.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Blatty explains his concern about his college alma mater Georgetown University, and its embrace of Sebelius last year. He's so concerned that he signed onto an effort expressing disgust with the Catholic-rooted school, and urges them to reverse their current speaker policies, saying:
“If you truly love someone that you think needs to be in rehab, you’ll do everything you possibly can to get them into rehab,” Blatty says. The last straw, he says, was Georgetown’s invitation of Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services,to be a commencement speaker in May of last year. Sebelius has a record of supporting abortion rights, and abortion is the issue that really sets Blatty’s nerves on fire.
He describes, his voice trembling, a particular abortion procedure in graphic detail.
He pauses. His voice is nearly a whisper.
