Another "fetus" story

"an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kind; specifically : a developing human from usually two months after conception to birth"

Is it just me or does it seem like the media really like to get it wrong with their obsession on
the word fetus?

Human fetus found at sewage plant

COMMERCE CITY - Police say what appears to be a human fetus was found at the Metro Waste Reclamation District Sunday morning.

Workers found the fetus in a device used to filter sewage around 9:30 a.m.

Commerce City Police say they believe they know who was responsible for putting the fetus at the facility. Police officers reached Monday could not give any information about the suspect because the investigation is ongoing.

The fetus has been turned over to the Adams County Coroner's Office.

If the fetus is determined to not have been viable, meaning it never drew air, police say potential charges could be abuse of a corpse or concealment of death. If the fetus did draw air, the charges could be more serious.

This 9News Denver story is a classic example of the ongoing effort to dehumanize the pre-born, in
my opinion.

How hard would it be to call this poor tiny one found in the sewer what he or she clearly was -
a baby whose mother thought so little of him or her that she threw the baby in with the city's effluent.

Tragic loss and tragic that the news is so stuck in their denial of the humanity and dignity of innocent,
pre-born human life.
