A thread to highlight something important in the the anti-choice bill Tennessee is trying to pass.

This definition of viability is PRIOR to implantation.

The indirect consequences of this bill will now make hormonal birth control methods, including IUDs, which prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg, an instrument of abortion.
