HR 305 would grant constitutional rights to fertilized eggs, embryos, fetuses, and clones. It would ban abortion with no exception for rape, incest, or to save the life of the pregnant person. It would also ban birth control pills, IUDs, and emergency contraception. In addition, it would eliminate certain medical choices for women, including some cancer treatments and in vitro fertilization.

The Sanctity of Human Life Act declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human, and is a person’s paramount and most fundamental right. The Act further states that each human life begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, irrespective of sex, health, function or disability, defect, stage of biological development, or condition of dependency.
