Former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee spoke at the Values Voter Summit in Washington DC:
Now I know one of the biggest battles going on in this city right now, and it’s a worthy battle, and an important one, defund Planned Parenthood.
And it’s why I have said, that as President of the United States, I will raise this question: Is the unborn child a person or is it just a blob of tissue? And I believe with all my heart the answer to that question we all know, it is a person.
Since it is a human being, we already have the Constitutional protection, it’s called the 5th Amendment that says that there will be due process before you deprive a person of life or liberty. As president, we will invoke the 5th and 14th Amendment. We will protect human life.

Governor Huckabee said that he will preserve the three equal branches of government.
I’ve read the Constitution. Something, I think, a lot of Ivy League lawyers never did. And here’s this much I know: The courts cannot make a law. And I want you to know and I serve notice today, that as President of the United States, I will keep the oath and will not surrender the entire Executive Branch over to the Judicial or the Legislative because I believe there are three branches of government, equal, and therefore the checks and balances to each other. And Kim Davis and people like her will never, ever go to jail one minute if I’m President of the United States.
