NYT calls murdered babies ‘fetuses’ in article about Gosnell conviction

Vince Coglianese | Editorial Director

The New York Times referred to three murdered children as “fetuses” in an article about the conviction of Kermit Gosnell Monday.

Gosnell, a former Philadelphia abortion doctor, was found guilty of first-degree murder Monday afternoon for severing the necks of three born-alive infants.

The New York Times referred to those infants as “fetuses” six times in the paper’s write-up:

The verdict came after a five-week trial in which the prosecution and the defense battled over whether the fetuses Dr. Gosnell was charged with killing were alive when they were removed from their mothers.

[…]

Dr. Gosnell was acquitted of one first-degree murder charge involving an aborted fetus.

[…]

Clinic workers who appeared as witnesses for the prosecution said some of the fetuses appeared to move or make noises.

[…]

…Dr. Gosnell kept the severed feet of aborted fetuses in dozens of jars around his clinic…

[…]

…Mr. McMahon argued that there was no evidence that any of the fetuses were born alive…

[…]

Mr. McMahon also dismissed prosecutors’ arguments that one of the fetuses, Baby C, was alive after being aborted.
