Arizona: Pregnancy begins two weeks *before* conception

This has been making the rounds on Facebook amongst some of my friends, and I thought it deserved a place here as well – Arizona has decided that pregnancy now begins two weeks before conception.  Yep.  You read that right.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill that allows for the state to legislate a ban on abortion after 20 weeks.  However the bill also mandates that pregnancy is considered to begin on the first day of the woman’s last menstrual period.

According to  “Under the legislation, the state will be subjecting everyone to new anti-abortion initiatives, as well. The law also includes a provision that makes it mandatory that the state establish a website that publishes images of fetuses at varying stages of development.”
