Wicker introduces “Life at Conception Act”

WLBT, 1/29/9

Nine U.S. Senators are joining with U.S. Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi to re-introduce the “Life at Conception Act.”

This legislation would define the unborn as “persons” who are guaranteed the right to life, under the Constitution’s 14th amendment. If passed, this act would overturn the Supreme Court case of Roe vs. Wade in 1973.

Senator Roger Wicker says, “In Roe vs. Wade the Supreme Court refused to define when life begins, thus delegating this determination to the legislative branch. This legislation clearly defines that life begins at the moment of conception, a belief that is commonly held by most Americans and is something science has long proven.”
