Huckabee endorses "Egg a Person" Amendment


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/02/25/huckabee-endorses-egg-as_n_88444.html


Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee on Monday endorsed a proposed Colorado Human Life Amendment that would define personhood as a fertilized egg.


The former Arkansas governor and Baptist minister also supports a human-life amendment to the U.S. Constitution.


Huckabee spoke favorably about the Colorado ballot initiative, sponsored by 20-year-old Kristi Burton and her Colorado for Equal Rights group, during his Friday visit to Colorado Springs.


On Monday, Huckabee lent official support to the measure.


"This proposed constitutional amendment will define a person as a human being from the moment life begins at conception," Huckabee said in a statement. ...


Burton's initiative, if approved by voters in November, would extend state constitutional protections to every fertilized egg, guaranteeing the right to life, liberty, equality of justice and due process of law.


Approval would lay the foundation for making abortion illegal in the state.

This scares me because it leaves a LOT of room for birth control options like the pill and IUD to be made illegal.

Also would I be charged with reckless endangerment just for getting pregnant? I mean I seem to have about a 1 in 6 chance of delivering a healthy baby.
