When does pregnancy begin?

In this series, we looked at the implications of personhood on miscarriage and birth control pills. We ended the prior post with the observation that one hormonal birth control, namely NuvaRing, “is … approved for the prevention of pregnancy in women” and asked, “What is pregnancy?” In this final post of the series, we begin with that question.
