Paul Ryan vs. Women

Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's choice for Vice President, co-sponsored a bill in Congress that said,

"The life of each human being begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, irrespective of sex, health, function or disability, defect, stage of biological development, or condition of dependency, at which time every human being shall have all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood."

Full Constitutional rights for just-fertilized zygotes.
No exceptions were in the bill. Even the pill would've violated this law.

P.S. It failed to pass in the last Congress, so he co-sponsored it again when it was reintroduced to the current Congress.
