Trump administration bans CDC from using the term ‘fetus’

abortion, preborn

The Trump administration is directing policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to end the use of certain words, including the term “fetus,” in budget documents.

The Washington Post reports that senior officials distributed a list of “forbidden words” during a 90-minute meeting with policy analysts in Atlanta, which include “entitlement” and “vulnerable.” In some cases, replacement words or phrases were provided. For others, however, replacement terms were not immediately suggested.

Analysts are now being instructed to use the phrase “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes” instead of “science-based” or “evidence-based.”

The move signals a shift in the nation’s largest health agency — one that appears to lean towards recognizing and respecting human life in the womb. The pro-life movement has long worked to inject the gravity and violence of abortion and the dignity of every human life into language, which has been hijacked by the abortion lobby to dehumanize the preborn.
