And what would the 1% do with Garber's Gambit? They would wreck havoc on the law of property by making a mockery of the rule against perpetuities. The 1% wants to control wealth by controlling property. The rule against perpetuities was written to curtail that greed. A future interest must vest within the lifetime of any of one of several named persons, plus 21 years, if it is to vest at all. So if the Koch brothers wanted to give a future interest in valuable real estate, it would have to vest within the lives of (here you insert the names of about a dozen really well know babies) plus 21 years. If the life in being is the frozen embryo, the 1% will keep amassing and retaining their property until they own everything.
Where Garber and the anti-abortion go afoul is equating soul with person. Gone, apparently, are the days when God was coming to judge the "quick and the dead". Garber has us arriving to a new Creed where God will come to judge the "conceived and the dead". And having saved these gametes, zygotes, embryos, and fetuses from abortion, how does Garber plan to baptize them, especially the frozen ones?
Garber and the anti-abortion crowd forget that Jesus said you have to be born twice to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Of course, if you have to be born twice you first have to be born once. That is the starting line, it needs to stay the starting line.
It's pretty common for people to be confused about how birth control pills work. Here’s what it boils down to: birth control pills are made of hormones. Hormones are chemicals made in our bodies. They control how different parts of our bodies work.
Some birth control pills contain two hormones — estrogen and progestin. These are called combination pills. Some are progestin-only pills. Most women on the pill take combination pills.
The hormones in the pill work by keeping a woman’s ovaries from releasing eggs — ovulation. Pregnancy cannot happen if there is no egg to join with sperm. The hormones in the pill also prevent pregnancy by thickening a woman’s cervical mucus. The mucus blocks sperm and keeps it from joining with an egg.
The hormones also thin the lining of the uterus. In theory, this could prevent pregnancy by keeping a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.
