From Susie Bright's Journal
, a link to P.Z. Meyers' Why the wingnuts hate Plan B
. It's thorough, brilliant and should be mandatory reading. His site, Pharyngula
, is damn good, too, if you're the 'godless liberal' type who's not afraid to learn some science and new terms. A teaser:
This is an issue on which we can completely ignore any assertion that life begins at fertilization (which I personally find absurd), because it's irrelevant: fertilization doesn't take place. No zygote, no fetus, no embryo, no babies. The claim that this argument is about the life of a baby is null and void, and the opposition to Plan B makes it glaringly, brilliantly clear that this isn't about the sanctity of life at all: it's all about controlling a woman's ovaries. She will not be allowed to tamper with the timing of ovulation.
