Products of conception

An OB/GYN complained that Planned Parenthood can’t be accused of harvesting baby body parts, because fetuses aren’t babies.

“These are not ‘baby parts’. Whether a woman has a miscarriage or an abortion, the tissue specimen is called ‘products of conception’. In utero, i.e. during pregnancy, we use the term ’embryo’ from fertilization to 10 weeks gestation and ‘fetus’ from 10 weeks to birth. The term baby is medically incorrect as it doesn’t apply until birth. Calling the tissue ‘baby parts’ is a calculated attempt to anthropomorphize an embryo or fetus. It is a false image—a 10-12 week fetus looks nothing like a term baby—and is medically incorrect.”

Oh, really?

11 Weeks Pregnant: Know Your Fetal Development! [1:57]

Methinks the real truth here is that calling unborn humans “products of conception” and “fetuses” is a calculated attempt to de-humanize them for the sole purpose of making it less repugnant to murder them. A 10-12 week fetus may not look like a “term baby” but it is very clearly human.

Compare fetuses

  1. This is one of those cases where little kids are smarter than a lot of adults. If you show a picture of a human fetus at eight weeks (or longer) gestation to any random small child and ask him/her what it is, the child will answer “a baby.” My son (now 30 years old) was a late talker, but I’ll never forget the time when, as a mostly non-verbal toddler, he chanced upon a book with a picture of a first trimester unborn human being on the cover, and he pointed at it happily and said “baby!”

      Leftie pro-aborts got their panties in a wad over pro-lifers giving little fetal models to children at a state fair. How horrible! Giving little children anatomically accurate dollies of the unborn!
