Trumps HHS defines life as beginning at conception
The Department of Health and Human Services's new strategic plan defines life as beginning at conception.
"HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception," reads the draft plan.
It's a major shift from the Obama administration, which had similar language in its HHS strategic plan but did not include the "beginning at conception" phrase. But the change is in line with the anti-abortion stance of the Trump administration.
