Fetus

This is this word of the week purely because of my upcoming debate. It isn’t really a nice thing, to have to say that an unborn child is called a fetus, and therefore does not have the same rights as a human, but there is a difference. The definition of a fetus is an unborn child that is over 8 weeks old. It comes from the Latin word fētus, meaning bringing forth of young.
