Denver (AP) A proposed ballot measure that would define personhood as a fertilized egg picked up the endorsement of republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, an ordained baptist minister
.
In a statement Monday, Huckabee said the amendment proposed by 20-year-old Kristi Burton and her group, Colorado For Equal Rights, would send a clear message that every human life has value.

Burton called Huckabee endorsement “an amazing boost” to their petition gathering efforts. Supporters must collect signatures of about 76,000 registered voters for the measure to appear on the ballot in November.

If passed, the measure would lay the legal foundation for making abortion illegal in the state.
