Are we in the f*cking twilight zone? 

Laws related to abortion were passed in Arizona that may seem a little odd to the rest of us.

Arizona seems to be.

Lawmakers there passed three bills this legislative session that redefine all kinds of crazy things related to abortion. Here are the highlights.

1) pregnancy would be defined as officially beginning two weeks before conception. 2) abortions after the 18th week of pregnancy would be prohibited, except in medical emergencies. 3) the state must create a web site with pictures of fetuses at various stages of development for women to look at before getting an abortion. 4) high school students would now be taught that birth and adoption are the most favorable outcomes to an unwanted pregnancy. 5)doctors who withhold health information from women would be protected from lawsuits.


The bills have terrifyingly passed both the Arizona House and Senate and are headed to the desk of Governor Jan Brewer, a long-time pro-life Republican and champion of Arizona's equally spooky and invasive immigration law.

And they say there's no war

on women.
