— Governor Huckabee Endorses Personhood Initiative in Colorado —
— Huckabee: “(A)nother victory in the battle to protect those who cannot protect themselves.” —
DENVER, COLORADO (25 Feburary 2008) – Colorado for Equal Rights today announced the endorsement of U.S. Presidential hopeful Governor Mike Huckabee for the proposed Colorado Human Life Amendment seeking to get on the ballot in November.
“I support the Colorado Human Life Amendment because this proposed constitutional amendment will define a person as a human being from the moment life begins at conception,” stated Governor Huckabee.
Huckabee spoke earlier last week in favor of the personhood initiative,
“With this amendment, Colorado has an opportunity to send a clear message that every human life has value,” continued Huckabee. “Passing this amendment will mean the people of Colorado will protect the sanctity of life from conception until natural death occurs. Passing this amendment would be another victory in the battle to protect those who cannot protect themselves.”
“National leaders are now recognizing how revolutionary personhood really is,” stated Kristi Burton, who initiated the Human Life Amendment as a small grassroots organization. “That national pro-life leaders such as Huckabee are taking notice is an amazing boost to our petition gathering efforts. It sends a clear message to pro-life activists that we are one step closer towards personhood in Colorado.”
Colorado for Equal Rights is a statewide grassroots organization of committed pro-life activists. Colorado for Equal Rights is sponsoring the Human Life Amendment to the Colorado Constitution, stating “(t)he term “Person” or “Persons” shall include any human from the time of fertilization.” The Human Life Amendment initiative is currently working to gather petition signatures to appear on the November 2008 ballot.
