Just as the pro-aboriton crowd has attacked Cuccinelli (and tried to defeat him), they are also coming after Huelskamp in Kansas.  In attacking Huelskamp, the president of Kansas’ Planned Parenthood actually had the audacity to say that, “Planned Parenthood reduces the need for abortion more than any anti-abortion organization.”  Clearly, these people are out of touch.

Philosophically, both Cuccinelli and Huelskamp share a similar attitude toward legislating. They reject the traditional approach of simply playing defense while the Left chips away at our values year after year. Eventually, the Left wins some legislative victories and this war of attrition leaves our values on shaky ground. Both men consistently go on the offensive in the legislature. They understand that this is the only way to succeed in the long-term.

Cuccinelli will be sworn in this week, while Huelskamp is currently running for U.S. Congress in Kansas-1.  Look for both of these young Pro-Life champions to have bright futures at the national level.  There is reason to be optimistic about the future!
