A conversation with a pro-choice mother

A pro-life speaker recounts the following story:

legs of an unborn baby at 11 weeks

“Another time I was at the University of Cincinnati when an angry woman came up to me after my debate insisting that I use the word “fetus” instead of “child.” “It’s not a baby – it’s a fetus!” She shouted! I assured her that the two words were synonymous, but she would have nothing of it. “Quit calling it a baby!” she demanded. Right then, in the middle of our little “discussion,” her young child, pointing to the fetal models on display, declared, “Mommy! Look at the babies!” The child was yanked by the arm and as they briskly walked away, I could hear the child’s mother say, “We don’t believe that.”

The pro-abortion movement has a pretty tough job when you think about it. They have to overcome an obvious truth that even their own children can recognize. They can use dehumanizing terms like “fetus,” or “products of conception,” and pretend all they want, but it still doesn’t change the truth.”
