Bill Nye the drive-by guy

  1. Sez the Science Dude: “Many, many, many, many more hundreds of eggs are fertilized than become humans. Eggs get fertilized and by that I mean sperm get accepted by ova a lot,” and “But that’s not all you need. You have to attach to the uterine wall, the inside of a womb, a woman’s womb."

    Suppose we concede that for now, for the sake of the argument. What does Mr. Nye think gets aborted? Nobody aborts merely-fertilized-but-unattached ova. Those either develop further, or are miscarried naturally. (OK, I'll concede that there is a class of abortion that works by preventing implantation, but Nye's comments seem to be about abortion in general, not this specific form.)

    Mr. Nye's attempted strawman fails.
    Bill Nye, the "Because... Science!" Political Guy.
