10. Jimma, perhaps you have not been following the "personhood" amendments and related legislation.....

Poposed in several states (CO, MS, etc.), but not adopted, have been amendments to state constitutions that would establish a human life begins at conception. Following that logic that means that any action (or potentially even in action) taken by a woman, her physician, etc. that would result in her not carrying the baby to term would be murder.

Many forms of contraception would likely be suspect under such laws as they do not prevent conception but affect the attachment of the embryo to the wall of the uterus. That would make all these forms of contraception illegal and their use potentially murder.
