  •  Redefinition... (1+ / 0-)

    So, if pregnancy is re-defined by the Ohio GOP as "the human female reproductive condition that begins with fertilization, when the woman is carrying the developing human offspring, and that is calculated from the first day of the last menstrual period of the woman."

    Am I reading it correctly that all women who've started their cycles are technically pregnant all the time?

    Because you're either ACTUALLY pregnant, or you're pre-pregnant (e.g., between the first day of your last period and "now") -- even if you are not pregnant, not doing anything that might get you pregnant (e.g., celibate), or even capable of being pregnant (e.g., have uterus, ovaries, hormones, etc.).

    Someone needs to sit down with Mr. Webster to learn the construction of a usable definition. Or is that still close to accepting science?
