Pro Life NZ tells us why the royal birth helps the pro life movement.
We all rejoiced with the birth of Kate and Will's precious baby boy. The lead up to this royal birth served however unwittingly as a reminder that young George was a human being growing in mommy's womb all along. The arguments of location and dependence did not extend to the "royal pregnancy." No news outlet referred to the future heir as products of conception or the royal fetus. It was royal baby all throughout the pregnancy despite the dependence and location of the royal heir.
"It is strange, though, for outlets like the New York Times and the Washington Post and Boston Globe–which purport to be neutral on the issue–to use this seemingly explosive phrase without so much as a qualification. And why is this strange? Because it codes a pro-life position into their description of the unborn child."
