Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has endorsed an amendment to Colorado’s constitution declaring that a fertilized egg is a person.

“This proposed constitutional amendment will define a person as a human being from the moment life begins at conception,” Huckabee said in a statement backing the Colorado Human Life Amendment.

“With this amendment, Colorado has an opportunity to send a clear message that every human life has value.

“Passing this amendment will mean the people of Colorado will protect the sanctity of life from conception until natural death occurs.”

The amendment’s supporters need to collect an estimated 76,000 petition signatures to get the measure on the November ballot, according to the Denver Post.

If approved, the amendment would bestow constitutional rights to life, liberty, equality of justice, and due process of law to every fertilized egg, the paper reported.

The amendment is opposed by pro-choice groups, who fear it could set the stage for outlawing abortions in Colorado.
