Life Begins at Menstruationby Tip O'Neill on Apr. 13, 2012, under Arizona, Bigotry, Catholic, Christian, contraception, medical care, Republican, santorum
In the race to the bottom, Arizona scores again.
The “fiscally responsible, libertarian” Repubs who are in total denial of the fact that their party is now totally controlled by stone age christian religious zealots have passed the country’s most restrictive anti-abortion law.
In theory it bans abortion after 20 weeks of conception – but in reality it introduces a new medical theory. Evidently now life begins at menstruation.
“Gestational age” means the age of the unborn child as calculated
from the first day of the last menstrual period of the pregnant woman.
So effectively it bans abortions at an average of 18 weeks.
Repub gynecologists know best, I suppose.
