Abortion & Scott Peterson

Yesterday's Opinion Journal provides this food for thought:
And Fetus Makes Three
"A California judge Wednesday sentenced Scott Peterson to die by lethal injection for killing his pregnant wife and her fetus," CNN reports. Have antichoice fanatics taken over CNN? Everyone knows it's impossible to "kill" a "fetus"; the correct terminology is "exercised a woman's right to choose."

Making matters even more confusing, the Washington Post says Peterson killed "his eight-months-pregnant wife, Laci, and their unborn son," while the Associated Press describes the victim(s) as "his pregnant wife, Laci, and her unborn fetus."

Here's a thought: Can we start saying Peterson was sentenced to "abortion" rather than "death"? Maybe that will hasten the process.

  • Well said... I really don't have anything to add. Unless Paul Krugman writes a column agreeing with the verdict, which would also require the verbiage to slip past NY Times editors. RIGHT...
