New AZ Law ‘Pregnancy Begins Two Weeks Before Conception’ Not Onion Article

Written by Eric on August 27, 2012.

Like something straight out of TheOnion.com, Arizona recently passed a new law titled the Women’s Health and Safety Act that deems a woman pregnant 2 weeks before conception. Only this is not fiction, it’s Arizona.

Planned Parenthood of Arizona lobbyist Michelle Steinberg, the law will reduce the amount of time a legal abortion can be obtained by women. Steinberg stated that, the law is our nation’s “most extreme piece of anti-abortion legislation.”

According to Examiner.com the bill was sponsored by Arizona State Rep. Kimberly Yee. Yee is also an ardent supporter of drug testing anyone who receives welfare assistance. She is considered by some to be an “extremist”.

Steinberg explained the law by saying, “The law defines pregnancy in a way that bans abortion two weeks before the other seven states who have similar laws. It calculates gestational age starting with the first day of the last menstrual period rather than the date of conception.”
