New Arizona Law Means Virgins Can Be Pregnant

by: Oreo

Fri Apr 13, 2012 at 11:39:30 AM EDT

Jess talked about this earlier in the week and now it's official. In 90 days Arizona law will state that life begins at menstruation. According to the law it's possible to be pregnant while still a virgin.

Despite its name, critics derided the Women’s Health and Safety Act that Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed into law today as cruel, dangerous, and hostile to women—likely to deter many Arizona women from seeking an abortion, and to distress those who nonetheless go through with one.

Life starts earliest in Arizona, which now defines gestational age as beginning on the first day of a woman’s last period, rather than at fertilization. In practice, that means the state has banned abortions after about 18 weeks (20 weeks from the last menstruation) except in the case of medical emergencies. While that provision has been much discussed, abortions after that point account for only about 1 percent of the procedures currently performed. - Daily Beast

stupid question (0.00 / 0)
How do they determine the date of the first day of a woman's last period?  Do they just take the word of the woman who may have an incentive to lie?  Or do they figure out the real date of fertilization and go back 2 weeks?

Stupid Answer.... (0.00 / 0)
Normally, they ask.

I'm still stuck on the 28-day cycle thing.

So........ (0.00 / 0)
So if the egg is not fertilized and attached to the wall then it's technically an abortion when it is expelled out of the body? So a female that doesn't get pregnant technically has an abortion 12 times a year? There's a name for people in Arizona that passed this ridiculous legislation - IDIOTS.....
