Huckabee on abortion: "It should be left to the states"

Yes, that's an actual quote from Mike Huckabee in the not to distant past. Can you believe that at one time (not so long ago) Huckabee actually espoused the position of both Romney and Thompson on abortion?

John Hawkins: Switching gears again, do you think we should overturn Roe v. Wade?

Mike Huckabee: It would please me because I think Roe v. Wade is based on a real stretch of Constitutional application -- that somehow there is a greater privacy issue in the abortion concern -- than there is a human life issue -- and that the federal government should be making that decision as opposed to states making that decision.

So, I've never felt that it was a legitimate manner in which to address this and, first of all, it should be left to the states, the 10th Amendment, but secondly, to somehow believe that the taking of an innocent, unborn human life is about privacy and not about that unborn life is ludicrous.


So, I guess that Huckabee isn't the purest of the pro-life candidates and he's also joined the flip-floppers club.

Man, you've got love this race! It's filled with so many gotcha moments!
