When people speak of "choice" or the woman's right to "choose", I always ask myself, "What choice? Women have the right to choose what?"
Another common technique to make the slaughter of children sound nicer is to refer to abortion as "terminating a pregnancy". This video shows what, or rather who is being terminated.
In this world, there are people who want to deny the personhood of the baby in the womb, so they will use the medically correct term "fetus" in referring to the child growing in his or her mother's womb. "Fetus" is a Latin word meaning, "little one". In playing these semantic games, those who want to de-humanize unborn babies use this word because it sounds technical and scientific as if we were just talking about a clump of cells or a mother's medulla oblongata. The funny thing is that no one woman ever has a "fetus shower" or no one goes up to an expecting mother and asks, "When's your fetus do?" So you see how some people use this term to deny what we know to be true: IF IT'S NOT A BABY, A WOMAN IS NOT PREGNANT.
