I'm sure this poor woman would really think of her baby as a fetus. This is extremely biased reporting and obviously shows the sickened stance of our society. This was her child, unborn or not, not a fetus!

Her unborn child was tragically killed.

Prayers to her and her family.

This was a verbatim report from the Police written in official police english. There is no bias reporting. The only bias is in your mind.
Condolences to the family.
