The war on women just took a bizarre new twist. Arizona has sent to the governor’s desk a bill that declares pregnancies in the state begin two weeks before conception.
According to the Huffington Post, “‘A sentence in the bill defines gestational age as “calculated from the first day of the last menstrual period of the pregnant woman,’ which would move the beginning of a pregnancy up two weeks prior to conception.”
Note, April 24, 2012: This bill has since been signed into law (see text of the bill here).

Look on the bright side. Somewhere, (but not around here any more) there are religious politicians who still burn witches.
Shh, don’t give them any ideas. At the rate they’re going, our politicians will be back to burning (or drowning) witches by next year.
You’ve got to be kidding me. That state has some really bad water in it.
Luckily you live upstream from AZ.
Hmmmm…. maybe it’s that nuclear spill in the west part of NM that’s filtering into AZ….
Guess that means I’m pregnant! Oh joy!
