Huckabee just said he would use the 5th amendment to protect fetus lives...

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Sissyk (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

He also said he used the 14th which is far reaching but is the amendment to use BUT the 5th amendment?

1. The 5th amendment says:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

I assume he's referring to the due process clause in that amendment. The 14th amendment makes that clause applicable to the states. So what he wants to do is give the right of due process (whatever that us in this context) to fetuses.

Whatever.
