Reality Check about how anti-choicers

I wrote an article for RH Reality Check about how anti-choicers could try to ban menstruation without missing a beat. It was supposed to be satire.

But unfortunately, it was close to the truth. Anti-choicers are pushing a Colorado ballot initiative to define a fertilized egg as a person.

I’ve seen numbers from 40-80% of eggs that get fertilized won’t implant in the uterus, meaning that any random menstruation could have an egg in it that was technically fertilized, making your average tampon a potential scene of negligent homicide under this law. That aside, when you define a fertilized egg, much less and embryo or a fetus as a full person with rights, how on earth do you handle miscarriages?

They blow past your satire faster than you can write it.
