Abortion word games

A child by any other name is still a child. You can change the words but not the reality.

When a pregnant woman is carrying a “wanted child”, it is called a baby.

When the topic of abortion arises, the unborn child is referred to as  a fetus or product of conception as if he or she was somehow less of a human being. The word fetus which comes from the Latin means offspring or young one.

It indicates a stage of development in the life of a human being.

A television advertisement which aired in one of Action Life’s past  advertisement campaigns showed a woman saying:

I used to be pro-choice but then I had a baby of my own.

She asks: Why is it a baby when you want it and something else when you don’t?

This advertisement brings to mind a card  containing an ultrasound photo  of an unborn child handed out to to a happy mother by a hospital or ultrasound clinic  where the inscription on the cover read :”Sshh, baby sleeping.”

Sadly, in some hospitals and clinics in this country, another unborn child perhaps the same age as the one in the ultrasound photo becomes a product of conception when he or she is marked for abortion.
