That whole fetus thing

One argument that so many prochoicers use is that the fetus is not a human being. Of course, such an argument denies biological/genetic reality.

Heck, the argument denies basic English.

fe·tus1 /ˈfēdəs/   noun        
  1. an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception.
  2. synonyms:embryo, unborn baby/child

And "offspring," by the way, is "a person's child or children" (going back to Oxford).

So ... just by definition, aborting a human fetus involves aborting a human child.

Pax et bonum
