[Congressional Record Volume 157, Number 8 (Thursday, January 20, 2011)] [House] [Pages H396-H397] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Printing Office [www.gpo.gov] By Mr. HUNTER: H.R. 374. Congress has the power to enact this legislation pursuant to the following: This legislation makes clear that human life begins at the moment of conception and, therefore, the unborn are entitled to the same rights and protections afforded to all American citizens under the U.S. Constitution. In affirming human life begins at conception, the unborn are granted the right to due process under Section 1 of the 14th Amendment which explicitly states, ``no state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.'' [[Page H397]] The Life at Conception Act allows for constitutional protection for the unborn that they not ``be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of the law'' afforded under the 5th Amendment.
