I guess I don't understand why the word "killing" is incorrect? Abortion does kill the fetus/unborn child/baby/whatever, so that isn't really an incorrect usage of the word...[/b]
Because it starts by using terms like "fetus", "embryo", "elective abortion", etc. Then later, when addressing doctors relaying this (false) info to patients the usage switches to "unborn child", "killed", "torn apart", etc. It isn't technically an incorrect usage but it's not a scientific usage; in fact, it's probably a veiled attempt to dissuade the woman from having an abortion at all, or at the very least, to make her feel like a murderer.
I could not have said it better myself!
