she blinded me with science
Whenever amendments, resolutions, and other such proposed laws attempt to strictly include fertilized ova as persons in attempts to make abortion illegal, it is pointed out, and rightfully so, that not only does medically defined pregnancy not begin until that fertilized ova travels down its Fallopian tube and implants in the wall of the uterus, that the majority of birth control methods prevent implantation, rather than fertilization. Meaning, that such personhood amendments would actually outlaw an overwhelmingly large number of birth control options for women. Plan B, and other "morning-after" pills, however, usually get left out of those discussions, since it's generally understood and even written on the box
that they flat out prevent the implantation of fertilized ova instead of preventing fertilization.
But as the New York Times recently looked into, scientific studies show that morning after pills don't
work that way, and the FDA was straight-up labeling the boxes wrong.
