CNN Describes Abortion Survivors As a 'Fetus That Was Born'


If it weren't horrific enough that American society is actually debating what to do with living babies who survive abortion (with some like Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam suggesting we can just kill them after they're born), now, CNN has taken to ignoring that these babies are actually "babies" at all, instead dubbing them "a fetus that was born."

Yes, really. 

In a piece detailing this week’s upcoming Senate vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which seeks to codify protections for babies born alive after botched abortion procedures, CNN called abortion survivors – and I cannot believe I am typing this – “a fetus that was born.”

From CNN’s article:

The second bill to be considered Tuesday is the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sponsored by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, that would require abortion providers to work to "preserve the life and health" of a fetus that was born following an attempted abortion as they would for a newborn baby, or face up to five years in prison.

A “fetus that was born”? 

“As they would for a newborn baby”?

What is the difference?

Hint: There is none. A “fetus” (which is simply Latin for “unborn human baby,” for those who didn’t know) that “was born” is also – shockingly, to those who’ve never taken basic human biology – known as a “newborn baby.” Because it's a baby that is newly born.

But apparently, CNN has decided to maintain their cognitive dissonance, rewrite the dictionary and outright ignore basic scientific facts in order to dismiss the fact that abortion victims are babies, are fully human, and can, on occasion, survive the barbaric practice of abortion.

As the National Review’s Alexandria DeSanctis notes, the piece also falsely labeled the legislation as “abortion restrictions,” even though nothing in the bill restricts abortion, but rather simply mandates medical care for babies who survive the attempt.
