WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Bob Good (R-VA) led a group of 60 House conservatives in introducing House Resolution 1167 to discharge H.R. 1011, the Life at Conception Act (Rep. Mooney, R-WV) for immediate consideration by the House of Representatives. This resolution would immediately provide one hour of debate before the House of Representatives under a closed rule. Following debate, the House would be required to take a recorded vote on the Life at Conception Act.

“As we anticipate the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson, it is important that the Congress take a bold stance in the defense of life. I am proud to lead 60 of my fellow conservatives in demanding a vote on the Life at Conception Act. The science demonstrates that life begins at conception, and voters deserve to know where their Representative really stands on protecting all innocent unborn life,” said Congressman Good (R-VA).

“Protecting life is one of my top priorities in Congress. I am honored to be the lead sponsor of the Life at Conception Act, which defines human life as beginning at the moment of conception. Respecting human life from the moment of conception until natural death is not simply a religious belief, it is a scientific fact that life begins at conception. I urge my colleagues in Congress to define human life at conception. The preborn are the most helpless among us, and they need us to protect them,” said Congressman Alex X. Mooney (R-WV).

"With the Supreme Court apparently poised to finally rule that Roe v. Wade is flawed precedent, it is time for Congress to establish that the unborn are constitutionally protected persons beginning at the moment of conception.  Support for the Life at Conception Act (H.R. 1011 / S. 99) has steadily grown in both popular and congressional support over the last decade.  We call upon Congress to use their power under the Fourteenth Amendment and end abortion-on-demand." --Martin Fox, President of the National Pro-Life Alliance.

"The Life at Conception Act solidifies the truth of what we already know: that the unborn child is a human person from the moment of conception and should be fully protected under the law like any other American citizen. With the promise of overturning Roe within our grasp, now is not the time to back down on proclaiming the personhood of the unborn." --Russ Vought, President at Center for Renewing America.

“Over the past 50 years, 63 million innocent lives have been unjustly taken by abortion violence. With the potential reversal of Roe v. Wade on the horizon, now is the time for pro-life legislators to follow through on their promises to their constituents and boldly protect the lives of innocent preborn children. We are grateful for Representative Good's leadership and his unapologetic defense of our most vulnerable population - the preborn. Abortion was never mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, and it cannot be found between the lines of the text written in invisible ink. What the Constitution does assert is the right to life. Conception is the only consistent line to draw both scientifically and morally.” --Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life Action.

“In the face of the Left’s crusade to promote abortion for all, Rep. Good continues to be a stalwart advocate for the unborn and his leadership on pro-life issues should be lauded. The unborn are our most vulnerable population and we find hope in knowing that Rep. Good will not be deterred from his mission to protect life.” --Jessica Anderson, Executive Director of Heritage Action.

In seven legislative days, Congressman Good will file a discharge petition on his resolution, continuing the fight to force a vote on the Life at Conception Act.
