Campaign-spending regulations build up the "culture of life"?

Let's concede that, in his long career, Sen. Kennedy has sometimes championed legislation that has promoted the common good, well understood, and has sometimes even moved the ball in a positive direction (when he has not been pushing it in the wrong direction) on the "culture of life."  Let's concede (not that it was ever really disputed) that the Church's teachings on life implicate more than the status of Roe v. Wade.  But seriously . . .  Does Doug Kmiec really now believe that Kennedy has "built up" the "culture of life" by "curbing the corrupting influence of money in politics with the public financing system for presidential candidates in 1974"?
