They're not even bothering to keep the quiet part quiet anymore down in Alabama.
"The egg in the lab doesn't apply. It's not in a woman."
That's a direct quote from a sponsor of Alabama's new anti-freedom abortion bill, which specifically excludes embryos fertilized and grown in artificial environments and allows their destruction.
I will explain this, too, and see how correctly I will speak. The mother of what is called her child is not the parent, but the nurse of the newly-sown embryo. The one who mounts is the parent, whereas she, as a stranger for a stranger, preserves the young plant, if the god does not harm it.

the first terrorists to give a white cis male senator an artificial ectopic pregnancy are going to either destroy the world or win a Nobel Prize, I swear
@noelle I'm sure if they worked a little harder they could make it apply in that case. Maybe the woman who donated the egg goes to jail?
@noelle Thanks! I used to have a nagging feeling that they were actually motivated by deep religious conviction. But that's gone now. They just hate women.
