If GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked Rep. Paul Ryan for his vice president to woo the ultra-conservative vote, he certainly made the right choice.

Mother Jones reports that Rep. Ryan co-sponsored HR 212, the Sanctity of Human Life Act, which gives states the authority to ban all abortions, without any exceptions mentioned, such as the mother's life in danger, rape or incest.

The bill confirms that the fertilized egg would have "all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood."

Mother Jones reports the bill said:

(B) 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; and

(2) the Congress affirms that the Congress, each State, the District of Columbia, and all United States territories have the authority to protect the lives of all human beings residing in its respective jurisdictions.
