Heather Surovik’s unborn son Brady was soon to be delivered when a drunk driver hit her car, putting Heather in ICU for days and killing little Brady. Because Colorado law refuses to recognize that Brady was a victim of homicide, Ms. Surovik has put Amendment 67 on the 2014 ballot in Colorado. The Brady Amendment reads:
In the interest of the protection of pregnant mothers and their unborn children from criminal offenses and negligent and wrongful acts, the words “person” and “child” in the Colorado Criminal Code and the Colorado Wrongful Death Act must include unborn human beings.
On Saturday, Mike Huckabee had Ms. Surovik on his show:
Mr. Huckabee interviews former Arkansas State Senator Bill Walker who supported a similar law which Governor Huckabee signed in 1999.
Please note that Mr. Walker’s concern about the Brady Amendment not covering all acts of drunk driving is, thankfully, unfounded. As you can see from the text of the Amendment, it covers all criminal offenses, including negligent and wrongful acts like drunk driving.
