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.”

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.
