Abortion worker: Say “fetus” – never “baby”


In 1971, when abortion was legal in only a few states and the push to make it available in all 50 was on full force, an abortion industry worker said this at a conference for abortion providers:

These may seem very, very insignificant to us, but to the patient it can really imply that you are using a judgment, and quite often we are not aware of what we are saying. We have to be very, very sensitive, and very, very aware of what words we’re using to describe the procedures used. Use the word “fetus”; This is a fetus; this is not a “baby.”

Proof positive that clinic workers have been twisting the truth about abortion since the very beginning.
