Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is scheduled to address the closing banquet of a national anti-abortion group's convention later this month.
The National Right to Life Committee says Brownback will speak June 30, the final day of the three-day gathering in Arlington, Va.
Brownback had a strong anti-abortion voting record in the U.S. Senate.
As governor, he has signed measures tightening limits on late-term abortions, restricting private insurance coverage for elective abortions and imposing health and safety regulations specifically for abortion providers.
He has also signed bills to impose tougher parental consent rules when minors seek abortions and to deny funds to Planned Parenthood.
