Colorado For Equal Rights Applauds Caplis Biology Lesson:
"Humans Do Not Lay Eggs"
The Caplis and Silverman Show on KHOW radio, heard on 630AM, gave a biology lesson to listeners , criticizing the Rocky Mountain News headline " Huckabee endorses rights for fertilized egg."
Dan Caplis was quoted as saying "[W]hen you want to minimize the humanity of somebody you want to use as property," you "change the terminology, which was done to African-Americans and, you know, is now being done to humans at early stages."

Caplis continued on to say that humans do not lay eggs, therefore the headline was medically and factually inaccurate.
The Rocky Mountain News article referred to Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee's endorsement of the Colorado Personhood Amendment, sponsored by Colorado for Equal Rights. Summarized, the amendment states that humans are 'people' from the moment of conception.
"Dan Caplis got it right, and we commend him for his stand to protect all human life. From the very moment of fertilization, all the components are there to make a unique human being...a person. And every person should be protected under our laws," commented Kristi Burton, spokesperson of Colorado for Equal Rights.
Colorado for Equal Rights is a statewide grassroots organization of committed pro-life activists. Colorado for Equal Rights is sponsoring the Human Life Amendment to the Colorado Constitution, stating "(t)he term "Person" or "Persons" shall include any human from the time of fertilization." The Human Life Amendment initiative is currently working to gather petition signatures to appear on the November 2008 ballot.
