Media Refers to Dead Fetus as "Baby"

In the bizarre world of politically-correct mainstream media, journalists' terminology is perplexing when the unborn are killed outside the abortion clinic. In this article, the Boston Globe refers to the unborn fetus as being "6 months old," and refers to the fetus as having a "life."

A Wellesley woman is expected to be charged with manslaughter today in the death of a pregnant woman’s fetus after allegedly beating the woman in a Dorchester nail salon in April, according to a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley.

On Friday, a grand jury returned indictments charging Ayanna Woodhouse, 25, with manslaughter and aggravated assault and battery in the April 10 incident at Tulip Nail salon. Woodhouse is expected to be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court, said a statement from Jake Wark, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office.

The woman was later taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where doctors delivered a girl in an emergency caesarean section. The baby did not survive.

The case raises the long-debated question of when a fetus becomes viable.

According to the district attorney’s office, a homicide charge may be brought in the death of a fetus if it was medically viable at the time of the trauma that ended its life.

Medical experts who testified to the grand jury determined that at 6 months old, the fetus was medically viable.
