Late last month, the department of Health and Human Services published its 2018-2022 draft strategic plan, opening it up for comment through the end of October.The document contains a number of changes to the last plan, which spanned 2014-2018. But one in particular stands out: In the “Organizational Structure” section from current draft’s introduction, the department has added language asserting that life begins at conception. Contrast that with the same section from the 2014-2018 strategic plan.On her blog, Ob/GYN Dr. Jen Gunter, first noted that the phrase “beginning at conception,” has been appended to the first sentence of this section.
