Former Governor of Arkansas and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is very concerned about Constitutional rights. He let it be known that women should come second to the potential life that they hold within themselves.
Huckabee believes that the unborn should hold and be guaranteed their Constitutional rights as future potential citizens of the United States, and he wants all Constitutional rights of the woman carrying the fetus to be stripped until after a baby is born.
“It’s about rights. Constitutional rights for the unborn. These women who carry these potential lives need to forfeit their rights for the betterment of all society. Then those rights shall be transferred to the unborn and they shall hold within in their power to be granted the same rights as all United States citizens..”
Among the rights that Huckabee wants the unborn to hold includes not just the 5th and 14th Amendments, but also the 2nd. Huckabee said in a statement to Free Wood Post:
“If a fetus shall have the ability to greet us, they need to make sure they are able to protect themselves against any and all attempts to remove them from the body before the time of birth. The unborn deserve the Constitutional right to open carry. Sort of, a stand your ground law within the womb. As president I will talk with gun manufacturers to make sure guns are appropriately sized to all unborn at every stage of development — from zygote, to embryo, to fetus, to baby. It is important that these future citizens can combat the evils that their moms want to place on them. That is why all rights belonging to women will be removed. Including the right to vote, because that’s just getting in the way anyway.”
Reactions to Huckabee’s comments are mixed, ranging from full support to utterly appalled.
