Bill declares prengnancy 2 weeks before conception...

Ah...yet another gem from the fantastic legislators of my state....

CN:  AZ is trying to pass a bill to limit abortions to 20 weeks gestation, however, they are declaring the official 'start' of pregnancy in this time limit to be the first day of your last period...which could be up to two weeks before you've even had sex, effectively making the time limit only 18 weeks, which is against federal law.  This excerpt pretty much sums up the stupidity of this law:
“Think about the implications down the road,” she wrote. “If a woman is ‘pregnant’ two weeks before she becomes pregnant, than any fertile woman—including those currently menstruating!—should really be considered pregnant. After all, we don’t know the future. We don’t know that any non-pregnant woman couldn’t be pregnant two weeks from now, making her retroactively pregnant now.”
