New federal guidelines ask all females capable of conceiving a baby to treat themselves -- and to be treated by the health care system -- as pre-pregnant, regardless of whether they plan to get pregnant anytime soon.

This is so preposterous and frustrating and infuriating, I don't even know where to start.

Fortunately, this blog entry manages to be more coherent about why this is bad and scary.

But this seems to be the mindset of the world now, and I am at a total loss as to what we can do about it.
