It’s a baby!

cigarette package photoThis package of cigarettes shows a warning from Health Canada concerning the effect of smoking on babies during pregnancy.

The warning does not refer to the child in the womb as tissue, fetus, clump of cells or product of conception. No, Health Canada calls the human being growing in the womb of a pregnant woman, a baby!

It’s interesting how the language changes in the public square when the discussion turns to abortion, the baby in the womb becomes ‘something’ else. This warning acknowledges a simple fact that a pregnant woman carries within her another human being known as a baby.

N.B.: All cigarette brands carry various warnings from Health Canada.
