The foetus double standard.


Zara Philips has had a miscarriage. Two in three pregnancies end this way. That usually occurs in the first trimester. In that case the pregnancy is usually not announced. In case you do not know Zara Philips – Mrs Tindall – is the granddaughter of Elizabeth II. That is the only reason that her pregnancy is news.

As Mrs Zara Tindall’s foetus died in her womb she will receive commiserations. These expressions of sympathy are commendable and doubtless appreciated. Yet had this woman chosen to terminate her foetus’ existence people would not have felt sorry for her. Ho hum it is her choice. There was no baby anyway. Nothing to be sad about. This demonstrates what nonsense pro Choice rhetoric is. If there was no baby why would not feel sorry for her that he foetus died. Died. Oops = that admits that the foetus was alive in the first instance and therefore was a baby.

There are warning to pregnant women not to drink too much? Why her body her choice? The foetus is not human and merits no consideration at all. If she killed her baby that is up to her and there is no moral aspect to that at all – according to the pro Choicers. The children are not permitted to kill their parents. WHy the other way around. People seldom face up to the horror and hideousness of abortion.
