Kansas Governor Sam Brownback (a genuinely pro-life Catholic) for President!

Kansas Gov. Brownback signed sweeping anti-abortion legislation Friday.

The GOP governor is a strong abortion opponent who urged lawmakers to create “a culture of life” after taking office in January 2011.

“All human life is sacred. It’s beautiful,” Brownback said just before signing the measure, flanked by abortion opponents. “With this, we continue to build this culture of life in our state.”

An Associated Press photograph taken before the signing shows a page of notes about the bill on Brownback’s desk that included a handwritten message at the top: “JESUS + Mary.” Further down the page were typewritten notes spelling out Brownback’s belief that the bill would create “a culture of life.”

Editor’s note: A number of years ago, then Kansas Senator Brownback, a recent Catholic convert, addressed Father Frank Pavone’s National Pro-Life Prayer Breakfast, just hours before the commencement of the March For Life, in Washington, DC.

I was there.

Senator Sam from Kansas claimed to be 100% pro-life, yet we all knew that the infamous late term abortionist, George Tiller … was at that very moment likely hard at work back in Wichita, injecting poison into the hearts of late term babies … with the full backing and support of then Governor, Kathleen Sebelius.

Sam certainly had his work cut out for him!

Even though Father Frank knew Sam Brownback and vouched for him, the assembled pro-lifers were rightly skeptical, since they had already been deceived by many, many glad-handed politicians, in so many different ways, over so many years. 

Yet based on these latest developments, it looks as though Governor Brownback is “the real deal” … turning things around for life, in Kansas … albeit with much more tough work to be done.

That’s the type of ongoing conversion story that should inspire many. First … the conversion of a man … a powerful politician, no less … and then, the apparent conversion of much of the formerly pro-abortion Kansas legislature.

God speed, Governor … and the same to all the other good men and women of Kansas, who are working diligently, to turn things around for life!

The battle is far from over.
