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.

I do not believe that a fertilized egg a pregnancy makes.

Look, I'm not going to answer this the way you WANT me to answer it.


I do not believe it is GOOD or RIGHT or DECENT to destroy non implanted embryos.

This is beyond insanity. What happens if the mother's life is in danger? In no circumstance would we kill an actual breathing child in order to save its mother. So are we just letting mum die now?


Are miscarriages to be investigated as possible crimes? What about women smoking and drinking or even not taking folic acid during their pregnancy?


What about fertilized eggs that are lost during a period?


Be afraid, ladies. Be very afraid.

and what about those of us who work too many hours. When I was PG with DS2 i was getting yelled at from all sides to cut back my hours yet no one was willing to take over feeding DS1 and paying rent for me.
