Nothing to see: Media call babies Gosnell accused of killing ‘fetuses’!/prosehaikus/status/323199927935201280

Indeed. But, that doesn’t suit the dehumanizing agenda. Twitchy has extensively reported on the media’s blackout of the Gosnell trial. The power of social media has shamed some in the media to start reporting on the house of horrors. But, how are they reporting it? Nothing to see here, move along.

Outrageous RT @jamestaranto: Note NYT’s page A17 story calls #Gosnell‘s alleged victims “fetuses.”…

@mattmackowiak @jamestaranto #LineDrawingIsHard #NYTimes #Gosnell NYTimes style book: “fetus” the name of a baby under 99 years of age.

Speaking of Stylebooks, we at Twitchy asked the Associated Press a question recently. They dropped the term “illegal immigrant,” after being pressured by those with an agenda who claimed the term was dehumanizing. People shouldn’t be labeled! Well, what about the term fetus? And now lapdogs are applying it to babies born alive.

The fishwrap of record said Gosnell is accused of killing “seven viable fetuses,” and other outlets followed reprehensible suit.

Unreal. Twitter users are disgusted.

@jamestaranto Here we have a murder trial for the murder of “fetuses”, yet aborting fetuses, we are told, is not murder. DGB

@jamestaranto so did latest cbsnews story on my feed.

The Daily Beast did as well.

In Philadelphia, Dr. Kermit Gosnell stands accused of gruesome crimes. When police raided his abortion clinic in 2010, they said they found the remains of late-term fetuses he’d allegedly delivered before cutting their spinal cords with scissors.


Moreover, as Jeffrey Goldberg points out, this has disturbing implications for late-term abortions.  It suggests that sometimes, those fetuses are delivered alive.

They can’t use the old “clump of cells” euphemism. It’s hard to do that when the grand jury report shows that one of the “clump of cells” was so large that his legs hung over the side of the shoebox he was shoved into [graphic photos at link].  “Clumps of cells” don’t have feet that can allegedly be severed and put in jars. “Clumps of cells” don’t scream, as a Gosnell house of horrors worker testified, when their necks are cut as they are taking their first, and last breaths.

Neither do “fetuses,” defined by Merriam Webster as “an unborn vertebrate,” contemptible lapdogs.

@melissatweets @jtlol @kdrum “killed the fetuses if they were delivered alive”… uh, fetus born alive = baby.Idiot alert.

@kdrum “fetuses born alive” are called babies. That makes Gosnell the biggest mass murder in history regardless your views on abortion

— Greg Ibendahl (@ibendahl) April 13, 2013

The remains of 45 infants (the report says “fetuses” but I will not) were found at #Gosnell‘s clinic the night of the raid

Dear liberal journalists covering #Gosnell (the few who are)The is no such thing as live fetuses. If the fetus is “live” that is a child.

— David L. House II (@housecatt05) April 14, 2013

@jamestaranto It’s really sick.The mind overwhelmingly wants to look away. Create euphemism.Obscure.

— Brad Johnson (@brad_dallas) April 14, 2013

MSM runs risk of exposing fetus is human baby if they cover #Gosnell trial. Prefer to perpetuate Secular Lie than publish Scientific Truth!

— Wesley Sargent (@TaxesYouPay) April 14, 2013

Bingo. Plus, they might have to ask some questions of President “limp and dead” Obama.

Enough, media. Shame on you.
