Althouse on calling a miscarried baby a “fetus” or “fetal corpse”

I would think that even strong proponents of access to abortion would reject the use of the word “fetus” in the context of a family holding a memorial service and declaring that the deceased being left its mark on the world. Strong supporters of abortion rights accord a woman maximum control over the question of what that entity inside her womb is. That’s why Obama said “That’s above my pay grade” and why the Supreme Court said “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.”
