Colorado's Republican Senator, Cory Gardner, spent a good chunk of his 2014 election campaign telling us that the Life at Conception Act was really nothing more than a symbolic statement, when, in fact, it is federal personhood legislation that would ban all abortion, even for rape.
Gardner: "The federal act that you are referring to is simply a statement that I believe in life."
So you'd expect him to co-sponsor the U.S. Senate version of the bill, as he did in the House.
Paul: "The Life at Conception Act legislatively declares what most Americans believe and what science has long known - that human life begins at the moment of conception, and therefore, is entitled to legal protection from that point forward. Only when America chooses, remembers, and restores her respect for life will we rediscover our moral bearings and truly find our way."
But Gardner isn't a co-sponsor yet.
