Terms cover up ghastly busi­ness

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I find it hard to be­lieve that peo­ple who sup­port the de­struc­tion of hu­man ba­bies in the womb have not re­verted to the old ar­gu­ment that the un­born child is some sort of un­known tis­sue grow­ing in­side its pro­tec­tive en­clo­sure. Per­haps the video ev­i­dence of the sale of aborted baby parts by an of­fice of Planned Par­ent­hood in the U.S. has si­lenced that ar­gu­ment.

The peo­ple who sup­port the de­struc­tion of hu­man ba­bies hide be­hind “free­dom of choice” and “ad­e­quate pre­na­tal ser­vices” and such state­ments, be­cause they know that baby killing in the womb does not sell well. They have in­stead used all sorts of terms to cover up what a ghastly busi­ness the tak­ing of hu­man life really is. Ernest Macdonald, Char­lot­te­town
