my point is he isnt debating the ethics, or morality, not whether it is right or wrong, or why. he is just discussing the word itself, the terminology. its equivalent to a grammar nazi claiming the apostrophe is in the wrong place so your argument is invalid.

"from Latin fetus (often, incorrectly, foetus)"
"The spelling foetus is sometimes attempted as a learned Latinism, but it is not historic."
Online Etymology Dictionary

"But then there's foetus (or fœtus). This is a British spelling of the Latin word fetus. That is to say, the œ might look like it comes from a classical language, but it just doesn't. Sometime in the 16th century, someone (mistakenly, one might say) started spelling it with an œ, and it stuck."

My point is the attempt to dehumanize the unborn through semantics is a fail.
