What does birth control do? Park your car?

Today's quote of the day comes from the unexcelled Peggy Noonan, talking about how the country is starting to pay attention to the presidential race, and specifically about Barack Obama's abortion answer at Rick Warren's church last weekend:

As to the question when human life begins, the answer to which is above Mr. Obama's pay grade, oh, let's go on a little tear. You know why they call it birth control? Because it's meant to stop a birth from happening nine months later. We know when life begins. Everyone who ever bought a pack of condoms knows when life begins.

To put it another way, with conception something begins. What do you think it is? A car? A 1948 Buick?

Or as I said in the comments of a post a few years ago:
You think it will develop into a porcupine? A tadpole, maybe? A grapefruit? If it has the physical attributes of a baby, but it's not human, what in the world is it? And how did it get inside that woman? Quick, someone alert the authorities!
Just don't alert Barack Obama. It's above his pay grade.
