Washington, D.C. – Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson today announced his cosponsorship of H.R. 1011, the Life at Conception Act.
“In light of the recent nationwide debates on abortion, I remain fervently committed to protecting the rights of the unborn. I have held this position in this and every Congress, and I am pleased to reaffirm this priority through cosponsoring this bill,” said Simpson.
H.R. 1011 is led by Rep. Alexander Mooney (R-WV) and would extend the right of life guaranteed in the 14th Amendment to each person in all stages of life, including the unborn.
“Each life, regardless of its age or stage, is precious and deserves equal protection under the law,” continued Simpson. “I will always stand up for those who have no voice, no matter how amplified the debate on this issue becomes.”
