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.

yep yet it always seems to work that way.

Really it is one of the reasons I can not get behind an all out ban on elective abortions. Honestly the fact that so many women feel there is no other way to handle an unintended pregnancy is a sad reflection on us as a society IMO. The sad part is in the case of abusive relationships they are often right. IMO a man should have his parental rights severed for abusing the mother we shouldn't have to wait for him to d o it to the kid. But we are so worried about stepping on toes that we allow the monster to keep his rights and leave the woman only the choices of being tied to him forever or having an abortion.

I keep threatening to sell off my stuff and move to Ireland, work in a pub and spend the rest of my days hunting with the Scarteen Hounds.


Now that would be heaven.

"4 Days, fertilized is what I should have posted."


I'm a bit confused; do you mean to say "implanted"?
