Along with millions of Americans, I believe in the sanctity of human life. Human life begins with fertilization, and we have a moral and constitutional obligation to protect and defend every precious soul that comes into existence. This is why I have introduced the Sanctity of Human Life Act (H.R. 4157), which defines life as beginning with fertilization. My bill also makes it clear that a human life would be created in the process of human cloning (SCNT), should this immoral procedure be practiced in the future.
