The Sanctity of Life Act declares that human life is deemed to exist from fertilization, without regard to race, sex, age, health, defect, or condition of dependency and ‘‘person’’ shall include all human life as defined herein.

H.R. 2764 would give 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 woman or girl. 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.
