You couldn’t be more wrong. Our lives began at the moment of our conception – at the moment of our fertilization. In other words, our lives began in our mother’s fallopian tubes, not in her womb. Due to the contentious battle over the right to life, states have defined pregnancy differently. Some define pregnancy as the moment of fertilization, some at implantation, and some at conception. Even the definition of conception means different things to different people. Some define conception as synonymous with fertilization and some as synonymous with implantation. All of this ambiguity exists for one reason – to confuse the question of what drugs act as abortifacients and what drugs do not. What is crystal clear is that each of us existed for about a week prior to our implantation and therefore any drug that would prevent our attachment to the endometrium would be an abortifacient. To claim otherwise is to play semantic games with people’s lives.
