Semantics are everything when it comes to getting people to take sides on the abortion issue. For example, a journalist recently used the phrase “term fetus bones” instead of simply “baby bones” to describe tiny bones found in a field.
Similarly, Troy Newton, head of a pro-life group in Kansas, has his own way with words. He said this, after an attack on his office in Central Kansas:
“Each innocent child is totally helpless against the abortionist’s deadly knife as he wickedly stabs her in the back of the skull, pulls her out by the feet, twists her tiny head around to break her neck, and then tosses her lifeless little body in the trash with yesterday’s garbage.”
