H.R. 586 – Sanctity of Human Life Act

H.R. 586, the Sanctity of Human Life Act, would declare that from the moment of fertilization, unborn children are persons under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution and "shall have all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood."

The bill states, "Congress affirms that the Congress, each State, the District of Columbia, and all United States territories have the authority to protect the lives of all human beings residing in its respective jurisdictions." If passed, H.R. 586 would allow Congress and/or individual states to outlaw abortion.
