To-may-to, To-mah-to ...

Ah, semantics. This post on Opinion Journal's "Best of the Web Today" speaks for itself:

Prenatal Thesaurus
From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Police are searching for a 22-year-old Fort Worth man accused of causing the death of his unborn daughter last month by repeatedly kicking his girlfriend, who was five months pregnant, in the abdomen.

Homicide detectives obtained a capital murder warrant against Jason D. Nash this month after the Tarrant County medical examiner's office ruled the death of the fetus a homicide. . . .

"The next day police were notified that the unborn fetus had died," Sullivan said. . . .

Under Texas law, a person commits capital murder if they murder an individual under six years of age. An individual is defined as a human being who is alive, including an unborn child at every state of gestation from fertilization to birth.

Is the victim in this alleged crime an unborn daughter, a fetus, an unborn fetus, an individual, a human being or an unborn child? Don't ask us, baby!

It's no wonder that we have trouble keeping Dads around in our society. They're constantly being fed a mixed message over whether the child they've sired is really a child or not. If the mother had wanted to abort the child, then the father wouldn't have been able to do anything about it. He would have had to go along with anything she thought was "best for her body." But, since the father decided to "abort" the baby without her consent, he's now a criminal. No one really cares what happened to the baby- they're just worried about "women's rights." The father did exactly what his girlfriend could have done. He just did it first! NOW should praise him as a poster boy for their agenda. I'd say he swallowed the bait-hook, line, and sinker. Perhaps other men will stop to consider the consequences of following NOW when they see this father on the chopping block.
