Fetus, Honda Civic…What’s the difference?

Here’s a repugnant headline from the Omaha World-Herald: Pregnant woman killed; 8-month fetus stolen. “Stolen?” One steals watches and cars and pretty little trinkets. One does not “steal” a human being.

Ugh.

[Update: 12/17/04 4:16pm]The thing was recovered! Oh wait, it’s not a thing any more—it has finally achieved baby status.

In all seriousness, this is great news. At least now the poor grieving husband is not also a grieving father. Not that that’s much of a consolation, but in a grisly situation like this, it’s something.[/update]
