Huckabee Works to Unify "Pro-Life" Advocates on All Discriminatory Patients' Rights Abuses.

From the infamous LifeNews:

Former Republican presidential candidate and Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee spoke to 700 people at the annual Tippecanoe County Right to Life banquet Tuesday night. He urged the pro-life advocates in attendance to be consistent in advocating the pro-life position.

Huckabee said that, for him, holding a pro-life view means more than opposing abortion -- it extends throughout life to issues such as assisted suicide or euthanasia.

Or, as the potential 2012 presidential candidate said, “from the womb to the tomb.”

“For me, it’s not a political issue, it’s a matter of principle,” he said. “Some people try to make it an issue of abortion, but it’s really about every human life having value, dignity and intrinsic worth."

“People say I'm anti-abortion," Huckabee added, according to the Purdue Exponent. "That does not describe me actively, accurately or efficiently. I'm not anti- anything. I am for treating people as I'd like to be treated."

Huckabee struck a chord often mentioned by pro-life advocates in noting how the devaluing of some human lives -- such as those of unborn children -- results in lessening the value of others -- like the elderly or disabled.

“This is why every person must get involved – you have to stand up and speak up or this is what can happen,” he said. “Once a culture begins to devalue human life, it begins to deteriorate.”
