Life before conception: Arizona anti-abortion law defies science

E-mail Print PDF

Arizona abortion lawThe Arizona government can now officially involve itself in your sex life. Whether it’s during sex, after sex or before you’ve ever met that special someone, state officials in Arizona have determined life to begin before conception.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed her name to a controversial bill on Thursday, authorizing the state to outlaw abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. According to the legislation, however, the state considers the starting point of the life of a fetus to begin on the first day of the mother’s last menstrual period, essentially establishing life to begin before scientifically possible.

Weirded out? Governor Brewer says anyone with brains could get behind her reasoning in bringing pen to paper when it came to signing the bill into law.

"This legislation is consistent with my strong track record of supporting common sense measures to protect the health of women and safeguard our most vulnerable population – the unborn," Brewer insists in a statement that accompanied her signing the Women’s Health and Safety Act on Thursday, April 12.

TVNL Comment: There really is a war against women waging in the GOP.  This is only one battle, but a huge one that has been lost.
