From a learned and experienced bench research scientist once at NIH and also a doctorate in philsophy/theology, as well as a long time professor of the name in several well known institutions, Dr Dianne Irving brings much insight and credibility to the question of the so-called “4 abortifacient” drugs out of a potential 20 in the Hobby Lobby case recently.
Here’s some of her take on this, some of which ESH has previously expounded upon with the fake science and the misbranding of “contraceptives” which are in fact often abortifacients, as well as the scientific fantasy of a “fertilized egg”, an oxymoron in reality if there ever was one; once fertilized an ovum (egg) no longer is, and its nature and chemistry have vastly altered:
Dr Irving writes this week:
“[Note: Why would abortion advocates even want to tell the TRUTH when they haven’t done so for the last 40 years?! Yes, indeed — more than just the 4 abortifacients identified in the Hobby Lobby case, and still provided by them as “contraceptive coverage”!
“Even more lies: note how “pro-abortion” responses to and commentaries on the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby case continue to try to fool the public (and themselves) with their use of the grossly unscientific term “fertilized egg”— even used by supposed “conservative” commentators. Stop with the “egg” fraud! There is no such thing as a “fertilized egg”! Once fertilization has taken place in the woman’s fallopian tube there is NO EGG THERE. Repeat: THERE IS NO EGG THERE. What is there is a new human being, a new human organism. Why do these commentators — on both sides of the aisle — still insist on using the fake term “fertilized egg”? All they have to do is look it up. Perhaps both SCOTUS and Hobby Lobby need to revisit those other 16 so-called “contraceptives”. Real human embryologists, such as the world-renown Swiss human embryologists O’Rahilly and Muller, have long warned about allowing the term “egg” — either before or after fertilization:
“The term ‘egg’ should be discarded from human embryology. [emphasis in original]. It conveys a negative image that considers women unflatteringly, and hence is best reserved for a nutritive object sometimes seen on the breakfast table. [Ronan O’Rahilly and Fabiola Muller, Human Embryology & Teratology (New York: Wiley-Liss, 2001), pg. 25]
“Some human embryologists even refer to abortifacients as “contra-implantation pills” instead of as “contraceptives”! For long-established accurate human embryological terms to use in these political debates see the extensive scientific references in Irving:

ESH knows it’s too much to ask the drive by state media to be accurate or truthful as their agenda fits with the Regime and their NWO-type dementia. That and an attention span the size of an ephemeron leaves them crippled and handicapped in the cerebral sphere.
Hopefully citizen journalists and others of goodwill shall “get it” after 40+ years of abortiholic polemics and rhetoric on topics in which they demonstrated repeatedly they have no erudition or expertise.
Meanwhile, left wing looney “pastors” were handing out condoms at a CA Hobby Lobby, oblivious to the memo that the company didn’t object to true “contraceptives” like condoms. BTW, ESH and everyone else knows such offensive antics actually drive people away from the likes of baby killing Klan Parenthood and their ilk, and that virtually no prescription plans, not even under the Kenyan kommie’s kontrol, cover over the counter items like condoms. Duh! Nothing like doing one’s homework, eh?
