Celebrate a baby, not a “fetus”

Focus on the Family has produced some terrific pro-life videos. Reading one pro-life source today, I was directed to “It’s a baby,” which brought a smile to my face.

Of course, it’s not the first time a pro-life organization has pointed out how clunky, how absurd it is to call a baby a “fetus.” www.choice42.com has produced a whole series of hilarious video including here.

Choice42.com pokes fun at the absurdity of other standard pro-abortion arguments such as here and here.

The Focus ad starts with a woman happily telling her husband “We’re having a “fetus”; a woman looking at a monitor about to deliver her “fetus”; a couple of guys jogging with one asking the other if they’d picked out any names for the “fetus”; and a doctor encouraging a woman to deliver her “fetus.”

Just before Focus lowers the boom, we hear a voice over saying, “Focus on the Family would like to remind you…that no matter where you are on your pregnancy journey, call it what you want but the truth does not change…”

We then see a very pregnant women asking their young daughter, “You want to feel the fetus kick?” The young girl looks at her Mom and Dad and patiently informs them, “Ah, It’s a baby.”

The voice over ends the one minute long video with “It’s still a baby.”
