"Anti-Fetal Rhetoric: America's Best-Loved Hate Speech

We find this little gem:

"In his classic essay "Politics and the English Language, " George Orwell warned about the destruction of our minds and our culture by euphemisms and slogans. The tyrannical, thought-stifling world depicted in Orwell's novel 1984 was a place of mendacious rhetoric where the heresy of heresies was to speak plainly. The first and most basic defense against today's totalitarian terminology aimed at unborn humans is likewise plain speaking.

Plain speaking must challenge the entrenched false rhetoric on two fronts. (1) The derisive expressions must be exposed as an outrageous and insidious brand of hate speech concocted to further the pro-abortion agenda by inducing in pregnant women fear of and loathing for their preborn offspring. (2) The disparaging designations need to be discredited by documenting how closely they echo the most extreme forms of murderous name-calling in the annals of humanity."

This sad story once again incorrectly uses the
term fetus to describe a baby
apparently delivered on a plane and thrown in the garbage:

"HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A human fetus was found on a Continental airlines flight that landed at Bush Intercontinental Airport. And right now, the FBI is involved, trying to find out what happened.

Investigators say the flight was from New York to Houston late Sunday afternoon. The FBI says a cleaning crew found the fetus in the trash in a bathroom on Flight 433 out of New York's LaGuardia airport.

The Continental airlines plane was parked at gate 18, which is located at the far end of the building. The plane landed at about 4:45pm Sunday at Bush Airport. Passengers got off the plane.

An hour passed before the person cleaning the bathroom made the discovery inside a trash bag in that plane's bathroom. Investigators say the child was not a full term baby, that it was a fetus. They cannot say how far along that fetus might have been in its development."

This obsession with dehumanizing pre-born babies by calling them "fetuses" demonstrates the need for Personhood
laws. Babies must be legally protected from the moment of fertilization.

Colorado For Equal Rights is leading the way to make certain Harry Blackmun's statement, "if personhood is
ever established, the case for abortion collapses," comes true.
