Remember the videos that showed Planned Parenthood VIPs discussing making money for organ harvesting? Planned Parenthood defenders made a big deal because they said one of the videos showed a dead premature baby while it talked about an aborted fetus. The only difference between them was the cause of death, but they pretended this was fraudulent.
But it turns out that a fetus is just the same as a baby when abortion is not being defended. NBC Chicago reports, “Pregnant Mom of 3 Killed in North Lawndale Hit-And-Run.”
A pregnant mother of three was killed by a hit-and-run driver, though the baby survived the tragedy.
Karla Y. Leanos had been crossing the street in North Lawndale in the 4200 block of West Ogden around 10 p.m. when she was hit by a 2008 Chrysler traveling westbound at a high rate of speed, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. The vehicle did not initially stop, police said.
Witness Shaniqueta Tyus said a friend who was at the scene repeated that Leanos was 7 months pregnant.
After she was hit, emergency personnel delivered the baby boy, police said. The newborn’s condition was stabilized Friday morning.
The 26-year-old, of the 3000 block of South Keeler, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 10:25 p.m.
A witness to the accident said that the impact was great enough to knock the mother’s boots off. He was quoted in the story as commenting that the child was a “miracle baby” because it survived.
I’ll bet it never entered his mind to call the boy “a miracle fetus.”
Everyone is overjoyed that the baby/fetus survived. But it would have been perfectly legal, if the mother had been so inclined, to murder that baby with impunity.
This is just another reminder that we live in a morally schizophrenic world.
