Oh jeez, it just gets worse. I know there's already a Mike Huckabee thread, but that turned a little off topic and this floored me so much I thought it deserved its own thread. I put this in the Heap because it's a sensitive topic, but if a mod thinks it should go in the Veggie Patch feel free to move it.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/cristi...k_b_82630.html
Today, Governor Mike Huckabee is scheduled to travel to Georgia to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. There he plans to join Georgia Right to Life to lend his support, as well as the focus of the national media, to HR 536. This legislation, also called the Human Life Amendment, is a state constitutional amendment that reclassifies the most effective and popular forms of contraception as abortion.
James Bopp, a leading anti-abortion attorney...explained what the practical applications of...establishing in law that life begins at the moment of fertilization could lead to..."enforcement of homicide laws against pregnant women, restricting the activities of pregnant women, outlawing contraception and so on."
"There are some forms of birth control that really are the destruction of a fertilized egg." One of the editors offered a follow-up question, "Should the government ban that sort of birth control?" Huckabee replied, "Yeah, I personally think there are better ways to deal with contraception than destroying a human life. So, again I'm going to say that I'm always going to make my position on the side of protecting human life."
RESTRICTING THE ACTIVITIES OF PREGNANT WOMEN??????? By this logic, a woman who miscarries might be considered a murderer.
Opinions? Discussion?? Is there actually a form of birth control that kills the fertilized egg? AFAIK
, most, if not all, forms prevent the egg from sticking to the uterine wall. And if someone stays on BC when pregnant, it will not kill the baby but can cause it to be born handicapped, deformed, mentally challenged, etc.
If Huckabee by some demonic miracle wins the presidential election, I'm moving to Canada. I will not submit to this evil man's chauvinistic, oppressive will.
