Kansans For Life PAC Endorses Mike Huckabee for President

Kansans for Life Political Action Committee (KFL PAC) announces its support of Mike Huckabee for President. "As Governor, Mike Huckabee had the kind of pro-life record that Kansans envy," said Christine Ostroski, KFL PAC Director. "While we've been labeled the late-term abortion capitol of America, our neighbors in Arkansas had Governor Huckabee fighting for everything from a ban on human cloning to pro-life license plates. His record is outstanding!"
KFL PAC is urging all Kansans taking part in Saturday's Republican caucus to give their support to Mike Huckabee.

Huckabee, former two-term governor of Arkansas, has been a leader in the fight to recognize the value of even the smallest human life.

"What I accomplished as Governor," said Huckabee, "proves that there is a lot more that a pro-life President can do than wait for a Supreme Court vacancy, and I will do everything I can to promote a pro-life agenda and pass pro-life legislation. If I am saddled with a Democrat Congress, I'll veto any pro-abortion legislation they pass. I will staff all relevant positions with pro-life appointees."Huckabee also said he would use his position as president to "change hearts and minds, to move this country from a culture of death to a culture of life. He added, "I have no desire to throw women in jail, I just want to stop throwing babies in the garbage."

Among Governor Huckabee's achievements as Lt. Governor and Governor in Arkansas were:
  • The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act (1997 Act 984)
  • The Fetal Protection Act (1999 Act 1273)
  • The Physician Assisted Suicide Ban Act (1999 Act 394)
