The Bush administration distributed a memo that would make birth control pills abortion:
According to the HHS draft, â€œabortionâ€ takes on a very broad meaning: â€œThe Department proposes to define abortion as â€˜any of the various procedures â€” including the prescription and administration of any drug or the performance of any procedure or any other action â€” that results in the termination of the life of a human being in utero between conception and natural birth, whether before or after implantation.â€™â€
RH Reality check has a link to the leaked document. The whole thing is ridiculous – the last legs of the Bush administration, trying to redefine “abortion” as any kind of birth control or family planning. Coming soon: woman saying no to sex defined as abortion. As much as that’s Onion-y, I fear it’s what the anti-choicers are really all about – women barefoot & pregnant.
