Brownback is making social issues a centerpiece of his campaign.
DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Sam Brownback kicked off a three-day series of events in Iowa on Friday with Bobby Schindler, the brother of the late Terri Schiavo, whose death sparked controversy over a person's right to choose to die.
At a campaign stop in West Des Moines Saturday, the Republican senator from Kansas said the name for the "Pro-life, Whole-life" tour was created because it "applies to everybody at every stage in life."
"It's about life in the womb being sacred, unique, the child of a living God, but it also applies to Terry Schiavo's situation," Brownback said.
He emphasized that the best way to change the current situation surrounding pro-life issues on all fronts is to appoint judges who have similar ideals.
"We are one justice away from overturning Roe v. Wade," Brownback said. "I want to be the president that appoints that justice so that we can end this...It's a fight we're ultimately going to win because we're right."
Following the event, Brownback answered questions from the press surrounding recent calls for articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney. House Resolution 333 alleges Cheney deceived citizens and Congress in matters dealing with Iraq.
"I don't see a ground to do that. Let's see what the evidence is to bring that charge, but I don't see what that evidence is for the House to bring that charge or for the Senate to find it," he said. "I think it'd be a far better thing if we'd spend as much time and effort trying to figure out how we could work together to solve this situation in Iraq and come up with bipartisan solution and philosophy with how to we're going to deal with this long-term fight with militant Islam that we're in, instead of doing these projects that only further divide."
