Pregnancy begins at menstruation in AZ. No telling when brain development begins though.
Arizona manages to combine the War on Women and the War on Science.
Gov. Jan Brewer and the Arizona Legislature performed a biological miracle Thursday when they decided that pregnancy begins at menstruation—not the moment of conception—in a pack of adjustments to abortion regulations that will ban most of the procedures 20 weeks after the start of a woman’s last period.
Abortions after that time will be legal only when they are deemed necessary to prevent the mother’s death or “substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function.” Ultrasounds will also be required 24 hours before the procedures.
