Summary

Congressman Lamborn believes human life begins at conception, also know as fertilization, and ends at natural death. He has worked tirelessly throughout his 12 years in the state legislature and into his second year in Congress defending the right to life of the unborn and those facing euthanasia. He opposes embryonic stem cell research that destroys human embryos, as well as human cloning. On the positive side, he supports adult stem cell research because it is not destructive of human life and has shown much more success and promise for medical progress.

Congressman Lamborn has both led the way and supported others legislatively. While in the state legislature he introduced legislation four times, unsuccessfully, to limit post-viability, or late-term, abortion. He was successful, however, as the Senate sponsor of a bill to prohibit trafficking in fetal body parts. He also introduced, sponsored, and co-sponsored many other pro-life bills.

In Congress also, Congressman Lamborn is a staunch supporter of life. Various amendments and bills he has co-sponsored and letters he has written are described below. These include the Right to Life Act, declaring the unborn as persons from the moment of fertilization, the Parental Notification and Intervention Act of 2007, and the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act.
