The House of Representatives now has two bills before it aiming to protect all unborn children from the moment of conception.
On January 21, Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA, introduced the "Sanctity of Human Life Act," or H.R. 426, which would define human life as beginning at conception.
That bill, introduced by former Rep. Paul Broun, R-GA in past Congresses, has now been joined by H.R. 816, the "Life at Conception Act," which was first introduced in 2007.
"I have always believed the greatest duty of society is to protect the most defenseless among us," said Alex Mooney, R-WV, who introduced the bill.
"There are thousands of unborn babies who need us to fight tirelessly on the issue of human life. A human life is a precious thing and anything I can do to fight for the most vulnerable among us, I will," LifeSiteNews quotes Mooney as saying.
