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.

oooh, that's good to know. It's made me a bit crazy that we haven't fallen yet. Nice to know sometimes it just takes that long.

<We used NFP to conceive each of ours. But my best predictor was ovulation. I always have pain in that ovary the day before the follicle releases the ovum. If we made sure to have sex during that night and the next- we almost always came up preggers.>


Wow! What a useful pain! i just get pain when it's too late, lol!


<Can't use it for contraception though.>


As Billy Connolly says, 'I'd like to thank the Catholic church for the rhythm method of contraception, without which I wouldn't be here!'

I was off BC for a full 12 months before conceiving my DD after using NFP (Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weshler sp?) for one month.

< I think that contraception should be taken out of the picture because of my religious beliefs.>


Why should your religious beliefs mandate what I may do with my body?



I have been off the Pill for 9 mos - if we don't conceive by 12 mos, I will start using NFP to conceive.

Mike Huckabee is an ignorant, bible-thumping redneck. Thank God he will never sit in the White House.

"My religion commands me to engage in the gift of sex on those peak days whether I plan to conceive or not. My religion allows for birth control so that this gift may be enjoyed, revered and lustily celebrated in the honor of the lord and lady."


And what are you doing for Beltaine? *wink wink*
