Baby or fetus? Pro-life organization's video mocks the pro-choice movement's attempt to obscure the truth

Focus on the Family posted a video that features multiple scenes in which the term "fetus" is absurdly substituted for the word "baby."

In the first scene, a smiling woman apparently holding a pregnancy test informs a man that the test is positive. She excitedly says, "We're having a fetus."

The next scene features a couple looking at what appears to be an ultrasound monitor showing their unborn child. The pregnant woman lovingly extends her hand toward the screen and says, "Hi, fetus."

In another scene, a woman can be seen wearing a "FETUS ON BOARD!" t-shirt.

And in another scenario, a doctor delivering a child tells a woman to continue pushing and assures her that her "fetus" is doing well.

Another scene shows an older woman happy to read a greeting card that announces that a couple is "having a Fetus."

The last scene depicts a pregnant woman asking her young daughter if she'd like to "feel the fetus kick."

The little girl replies, "Um, it's a baby."

"Call it what you want. But the truth does not change," a woman says in a voiceover during the video. "It's still a baby."

"Fetus—that's such a scientific word. It's distant. It feels a million feet away from us, and that is the point. There are people trying to diminish the value of life by changing how we talk about it," a Focus on the Family webpage states. "At Focus on the Family, we love the word baby—because baby, it's personal. It points to the joy of life ahead and all the things that make babies human. And it happens from conception."

The webpage includes a timeline about a baby's development. At five weeks, a "poppy-seed-sized heart begins to beat for baby," the chart indicates. "Baby has 10 toes" at 8 weeks, the chart notes. "Just 8 weeks in, and you can already count toes!" the page declares.
