A fetus is a fetus, a baby is a baby. Please do not pull your own emotions into it, it is the terminology. You stated you were an atheist and believed in science, then shouldn’t you at least use the term ‘fetus’?
Even atheists can feel emotions. Killing a prenatal child is an emotional experience. Knowing that I live among people that are not only willing to kill their own children but fight relentlessly for the rights of others to kill theirs saddens me.
The reason you prefer the use of scientific terms when referring to these children is because it makes the killing easier for you to accept. Would it make it easier for you to kill a thirteen year old child by referring to them as an adolescent?
Using scientific terminology as a way to assuage the guilt associated with the killing of a human fetus is no different than using it to justify killing an adolescent. The simple truth is that regardless of the terms used, abortion kills a real living human being. A human being at a stage of life that each and every one of us once passed through.
