Last week, Representative Doug Lamborn filed House Resolution 464, the Recognizing Life Resolution, calling on Congress to recognize the equal protection guarantees in the Fourteenth Amendment, specifically for the preborn.
“The United States Constitution guarantees every person equal protection under the law. A child in the womb is a person; therefore a child in the womb is guaranteed equal protection and cannot be violently and unjustly killed through abortion. Congress shares the vital responsibility of ensuring that our constitutional rights are extended and protected. The question of when a human life begins is settled; at the moment of fertilization, a new and genetically distinct human being comes into existence. Science confirms what people throughout all of history have understood: when a woman is pregnant, she is carrying a human child. The Recognizing Life Resolution is an important step towards stopping the illegal homicide of elective abortion. I thank Representative Lamborn and all of the co-sponsors in Congress who are setting a bold pro-life agenda with one goal in mind: complete legal protection for children in the womb and an end to elective abortion in America.”
Congressman Doug Lamborn added-
“While we are grateful that Roe has been overturned, there is still much work to be done to advance and strengthen the protection of human life, beginning in the womb. The Recognizing Life Resolution is the new north star for the pro-life movement that will guide future legislation and set the precedent for our nation to secure equal protection for unborn children and preserve the sanctity of life. I am pleased to introduce this resolution and look forward to continuing the pro-life momentum already making waves around the nation.”
