ROSWELL, N.M. — The city of Roswell, New Mexico has passed a resolution declaring that life begins at conception, and that human life “is unique and precious to God” and “must always be protected.”
According to the Roswell Daily Record, Resolution 19-28, “A Resolution in Support of the Unborn,” passed in a seven to one vote, with one council member abstaining.
“Whereas, each and every innocent human life is unique and precious to God; and … human life begins at the moment of conception and continues, uninterrupted, until the moment of natural death,” the resolution reads. “Whereas, innocent human life must always be protected and preserved; and … the protection of all human life is important to the people of the City of Roswell …”It notes that life is the first right declared in the Declaration of Independence, and that the American College of Pediatricians noted in a 2017 abstract, “The predominance of human biological research confirms that human life begins at conception—fertilization.”
