Mike Huckabee’s pro-life views were shaped by Francis Schaeffer’s book and film “Whatever happened to the human race?”

According to Wikipedia:

  • Mike Huckabee, while he was a presidential candidate, named the late Religious Right leader Francis Schaeffer‘s Whatever Happened to the Human Race? as one of his favorite books, in which Schaeffer compares America to Hitler’s Germany. Although Huckabee was not criticized for this association during his active campaign, the author’s son, Frank Schaeffer, subsequently compared him to Barack Obama, noting that the books denounced and called for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government. Huckabee was never called upon to criticize Schaeffer, who had been a frequent guest in the home of Jack Kemp and in the Gerald Ford White House, met with Ronald Reagan, and assisted with the appointment of C. Everett Koop as U.S. Surgeon General.[14]
