A pregnant YouTube influencer named Nicole Thea tragically died along with her unborn son, it was announced Sunday. She was eight months along and had been sharing her pregnancy journey with her hundreds of thousands of social media followers. A cause of death has not been announced.

As if all of that weren't tragic enough, the pro-abortion mainstream media showed its radical anti-unborn-baby bias in its reporting of the untimely deaths of these two beautiful humans.

The media is normally stalwart in its refusal to refer to unborn children as "unborn children," lest they might grant personhood to unborn people. "Fetus" is the media's only acceptable term. Never "child," "baby," "son," or "daughter."

CNN has even referred to a born survivor of abortion as "a fetus that was born."

In what can only be described as flagrant and disturbing doublethink, the media has largely referred to Thea's deceased unborn child as an "unborn child," "unborn baby," "unborn son," and "baby." Why?

Based solely on the fact that the baby was wanted. That's it. There is literally not one other single qualifier.

Have a look at CNN:

"Unborn child." Such anti-women and anti-choice language, right??

Here's the Washington Post:

An unborn baby is not a child or a person or a son, it's nothing more than a piece of the mother's body! Isn't that what we're told?

How about left-of-Lenin BuzzFeed:

Is that two left-wing outlets in a row that not only affirmed the personhood of Thea's unborn baby, but also assumed his gender?

BBC:

Three.

Daily Beast:

Baby??

Woker-than-thou Cosmopolitan:

Oh so that precious baby was actually a child?

Not a clump of cells?

Not "a pregnancy"?

Not "fetal tissue"?

NBC News:

Hair-on-fire pro-abortion HuffPo:

USA Today:

I could probably find a hundred more. But I got sick to my stomach and stopped looking.

The idea that human beings can either be killed or granted personhood based upon nothing more than whether or not they are wanted is the very heart of evil.

The idea that you can violently kill a human being because you don't desire him or her in your life — what could be more evil than that?

I think there's actually a word for that.
