When discussing abortion, many journalists act as though they don’t know whether an unborn baby/fetus is a human being, or whether abortion is murder. In some cases, they blatantly deny the humanity of the unborn child. But sometimes, in stories that are about babies but not about abortion, they let slip that they really know exactly what a “fetus” is.
A Time magazine article arguing against drug use during pregnancy says:
“Courts will never be able to ensure real protection to an unborn child. That will have to come from mothers who take responsibility for the lives they carry within them.”
