Mike Huckabee is a man of many trades. Former Arkansas governor. Pastor. Fox News host. Former presidential candidate. The list goes on. Now, Huckabee will be able to add “film host” to his resume, as he has teamed up with the conservative non-profit group Citizens United to create “The Gift of Life” — a pro-life film that explores the moral issues surrounding abortion.
As host, Huckabee will take viewers through the lives of people who were nearly victims of abortion — but were somehow spared from the procedure. According to the film’s web site, these individuals “help us define the culture of life.” The movie highlights these individuals’ stories, while delving deeply into the complicated and controversial issue of abortion.
Additionally, “The Gift of Life” profiles leaders in the pro-life movement and rails against the nation’s historic 1973 Roe vs. Wade abortion decision. “There is inherent and intrinsic worth and value in every human life regardless of that person’s age, stature, functional capacity, ancestry, personal assets, last name, level of education, or occupation,” the film’s web site reads. “Contempt and indifference toward any life can become contempt and indifference toward every life, including our own.”

In a recent column on LifeSite.com, Huckabee wrote, “The prevalence and acceptance of abortion has led to a culture of pessimism and death that manifests itself in many ways, even beyond the womb.”
According to LifeSite.com, four GOP presidential candidates — Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum — will join Huckabee at a forum on December 14 in Des Moines, Iowa, to unveil “The Gift of Life.” More than 1,000 pro-life advocates will join them in unveiling the project
