Criminalizing abortion as murder because life begins at the moment of contraception.

 

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES

 

January 9, 2023

 

Sponsored & Introduced By: Rep. Ian A. Medina (D-FL) 

 

RESOLUTION

Criminalizing abortion as murder because life begins at the moment of contraception.

WHEREAS, the Supreme Court of the United States has leaked a draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, 115 (1973); and

 

WHEREAS, the U.S. House of Representatives’ stance is that abortion is a political question to be resolved by the legislature; and

 

WHEREAS, mental health studies show that women who get an abortion suffer adverse mental health and often regret making the choice to end their unborn babies’ lives; and

 

WHEREAS, life begins at the moment of contraception and although the fetus cannot sustain its life on its own without the umbilical cord attached to the mother, it does not diminish the fetus’ human rights as an unborn human.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, THAT THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES—

 

Section 000. Legislative Authority

 

This legislation is made pursuant to the Necessary and Proper Clause of the Constitution of the United States, which reads: “The Congress  shall have Power . . . ] To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.” U.S. Const. art. I, § 8, cl. 18 (2022). 

Section 001. Cited As

This legislation can be cited as the Murder by Abortion Act, 67 U.S.C. §000-105 (2022). 

 

Section 100. Murder By Abortion

Whoever unlawfully performs, gets and/or obtains an abortion commits murder by killing an unborn fetus. 

 

Section 101. Strict Liability

The mens rea for murder by abortion is strict liability without the need to show intent, malice or premeditation. 

 

Section 102. Penalties

Whoever commits murder by abortion shall be punished with life in prison or death and a fine of up to $500,000. 

 

Section 103. No Incest or Rape Exception

There shall be no incest or rape exception to get an abortion.

 

Section 104. Physician, Doctor, Nurse And/Or Healthcare Professional Liability

Any physician, doctor, nurse and/or healthcare professional shall be liable for murder by abortion. If any physician, doctor, nurse and/or healthcare professional conducts and/or assists in any abortion, then they shall be prosecuted as a principal pursuant to this legislation.  

 

Section 105. Contraceptives Still Legal

Contraceptives and/or the morning after pill shall remain legal and available to all women in the United States. Nothing in this legislation outlaws contraceptives and women are free to take drugs that prevent the biological reaction of insemination of the female’s eggs from happening. Preventing the biological reaction of insemination of the female’s eggs with drugs, such as contraceptives, is not abortion and using contraceptives is still legal as dictated herein.
