Could One Man Influence Abortion Law?

"Anytime anyone tries to oversee the abortion industry at all they are called political or biased," said Mary Kay Culp, executive director of Kansans for Life, an affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee. "They should have oversight like any other industry."

Kline, from his post as a county prosecutor, has made no secret of his desire to go after the clinics.

"I'm passionately pro-life, and I believe laws should be enforced. There's no doubt about it," Kline told The Wichita Eagle. "My oath is to enforce the law, that is what I do."

Kline has said he will not run for re-election in 2008, and speculation has already begun about his next moves.

"I think even within the Republican Party this is a guy who has probably outlived his welcome," said Loomis, who added that when Kline was elected to the AG post, several of his co-workers left, claiming his anti-abortion rights agenda made them uncomfortable.
