Montana House passed a bill that declares that unborn babies are legal people who deserve basic human rights.
Rep. Caleb Hinkle from Belgrade, Montana sponsored House Bill 337, a pro-life constitutional amendment that recognizes unborn babies as people under the law. On Thursday, the bill passed in the House in a 67-33 vote.
“I firmly believe that life is the creation of something truly unique, something that individually, on a genetic level, has never happened before in the history of the world,” Rep. Hinkle said.

The bill speaks a powerful message, that life begins at conception and unborn babies are people who deserve basic human rights. Scientists even confirmed that life begins at conception. Even some abortionists admit to the fact that they are killing a human being.
The bill defines people as “all members of mankind at any stage of development, beginning at the stage of fertilization or conception, regardless of age, health, level of functioning or condition of dependency.”
Rep. Sharon Greef of Florence urged the lawmakers to vote yes and end the violence of abortion. He even called the current situation regarding abortion a “holocaust” currently happening in America.
“In America, we have a holocaust happening in every state because we are denying that personhood begins at conception,” she said.
However, oppositions criticized the bill calling it a violation of women’s rights.
“[It] would have sweeping restricting consequences on my ability to make decisions about my own body, my health, my safety, my security, my privacy, more so than anything else we’ve seen,” said state Rep. Alice Buckley, D-Bozeman.
