"Aborted fetuses who survive…"

Wow. I happened upon an article today that used that phrase in relation to the current scrabbling going on between Obama and Clinton. Specifically, Clinton is bashing Obama for his non-committal stance on abortion rights, something she has strongly and repeatedly voted in favor of. In fact, she’s bashing him because he has failed to make a strong enough case *for* abortion. In the midst of all of this, there is a reference to Obama’s vote to “deny medical care to aborted fetuses that survive.” James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal says it best, so I’ll just quote him:

There is a word in English for “aborted fetuses who survive.” They are called infants.
