A proposed 'personhood' law in Oklahoma that would grant embryos full rights as people from the moment of conception failed in the state's Legislature without coming to a vote in the House of Representatives, lawmakers said on Thursday.

I am not interested in reading your fiction.

When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her unborn baby. Alcohol in the mother's blood passes through the placenta to the baby through the umbilical cord. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and a range of lifelong disorders, known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs).

Can an adult with fetal alcohol syndrome pass it to their infant at birth?
Answer:
No, FAS is an environmental disorder caused by the consumption of alcohol during pregnancy. If the mother is affected then the defects will not be passed on as they are environmental rather than genetic.

Women with fetal alcohol syndrome face huge challenges.
Problems associated with fetal alcohol syndrome don't end when girls grow up. There are hundreds of thousands of women across the country affected by the disorder. They often have poor judgment and struggle just to survive.

Using or abusing alcohol during pregnancy can cause the same risks as using alcohol in general. However, it poses extra risks to the unborn baby.
http://health.nytimes.com/health/guides/disea...

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is a pattern of mental and physical defects which develops in some unborn babies when the mother drinks "too much" alcohol during pregnancy.
One thing is clear, if you are pregnant and take a drink -- a glass of wine, a beer or a cocktail -- your unborn child takes the same drink. Whatever you eat or drink while pregnant goes directly through your bloodstream into the placenta.

Life Begins at Fertilization
The following references illustrate the fact that a new human embryo, the starting point for a human life, comes into existence with the formation of the one-celled zygote:
"Zygote. This cell, formed by the union of an ovum and a sperm (Gr. zyg tos, yoked together), represents the beginning of a human being. The common expression 'fertilized ovum' refers to the zygote."
[Moore, Keith L. and Persaud, T.V.N. Before We Are Born: Essentials of Embryology and Birth Defects. 4th edition. Philadelphia: W.B. Saunders Company, 1993, p. 1]
"Embryo: An organism in the earliest stage of development; in a man, from the time of conception to the end of the second month in the uterus."
[Dox, Ida G. et al. The Harper Collins Illustrated Medical Dictionary. New York: Harper Perennial, 1993, p. 146]
"Embryo: The developing individual between the union of the germ cells and the completion of the organs which characterize its body when it becomes a separate organism.... At the moment the sperm cell of the human male meets the ovum of the female and the union results in a fertilized ovum (zygote), a new life has begun..."
[Considine, Douglas (ed.). Van Nostrand's Scientific Encyclopedia. 5th edition. New York: Van Nostrand Reinhold Company, 1976, p. 943]
"The question came up of what is an embryo, when does an embryo exist, when does it occur. I think, as you know, that in development, life is a continuum.... But I think one of the useful definitions that has come out, especially from Germany, has been the stage at which these two nuclei [from sperm and egg] come together and the membranes between the two break down."
[Jonathan Van Blerkom of University of Colorado, expert witness on human embryology before the NIH Human Embryo Research Panel -- Panel Transcript, February 2, 1994, p. 63]

In a more immediate concern there are women who struggle with Right Wing Religious Indoctrination Syndrome. They pop out babies like machine gun fire in the name of the lord (their husband) who rules over them like a dog owner.

Right Wing Religious Indoctrination Syndrome is passed on to the children through home schooling where they become socially inept and struggle desperately with lack of brain function from mega doses of bible beatings.

Girls brought up and subject to Right Wing Religious Indoctrination Syndrome become trained pets for a perspective husband. They believe that their only worth is giving their lord (husband) as many births as possible.

This is sad and needs our immediate attention. I suggest you seek medical help for Right Wing Religious Indoctrination Syndrome as it is evident you are a victim.
