The Kotex Kops

Rep. Dan Ruby, R-Minot, seeks to define a person in North Dakota law as “any organism with the genome of homo sapiens.”

What exactly is an organism? How do we know when an organism becomes a person? Are all organisms to be considered equal to humans?

The bill could affect in vitro fertilization treatments in which a woman's egg is fertilized with a man's sperm outside the woman's body. A few days after fertilization in the laboratory, the blastocyst is introduced into the woman’s uterus and the other two are frozen while the couple waits to see if conception will occur. *NOTE: there is a difference in fertilization and conception (see http://right2recover.blogspot.com/).* The blastocyst either implants itself or is washed out in the next menstrual flow. If personhood rights are given to fertilized eggs, a Kotex Kops division will need to be organized in every city to arrest women who flush or throw away human beings attached to their tampons! These cells will deserve to have a funeral or last rites administered and should be cremated or given a proper burial. Do you see how ridiculous Ruby’s law is?

Blastocysts with abnormalities are not normally introduced to the uterus, but under Ruby's bill, these cells would have the same rights as human beings and could not be discarded. And, because a teratoma contains the homosapien genome, it could get personhood rights.

Dr. Stephanie Dahl, reproductive endocrinologist at MeritCare Health System's Reproductive Medicine Institute in Fargo says, “Women can develop a type of ovarian tumor, called a teratoma, that has some human features, including bone and teeth. The tumors will not develop into a baby, but they 'contain the genome of homo sapien. They are tumors that contain recognizable parts of humans. There can be teeth, cartilage, bone, tissue, fat, hair ... An abnormal tumor of the ovary would be protected as a person under this bill.
