Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. –Republican Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) introduced H.R. # the Life at Conception Act of 2017.

"I believe that all human life is sacred. This week I reintroduced the Life at Conception Act with 57 bipartisan original cosponsors, a record high number. My bill simply codifies a biological fact which is that life begins at the moment of conception.  The Life at Conception Act is a necessary component in the long term protection of the unborn. I hope that my colleagues, on both sides of the aisle, will join me in promoting respect and protection for all human life,” said Rep. Alex X. Mooney.

"The importance of Congressman Mooney's Life at Conception Act cannot be overstated. Rather than tiptoe around Roe v. Wade, the Life at Conception Act eliminates the High Court's impenetrable wall by giving Congress and state legislatures the power to end, rather than merely regulate, abortion-on-demand," said the President of the National Pro-Life Alliance Martin Fox.

Alex X. Mooney represents West Virginia’s Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is a member of the House Financial Services Committee.
