"'Fetus' comes from the Latin word meaning...

...'young one' or 'young child'".

Absolutely amazing. I mean, I am truly & honestly in awe of this young lady.

I'm beggin' you - please pass this along. This must be seen.

Pro aborts say "its a 'fetus', not a baby". This was excellent as it refutes that - by the meaning of the word! If you abort, you are indeed.

In the spirit of dialogue and true Latin, I will enter that I think this word in Latin means offspring, of a plant or animal. That is the fact, from the sources I have. Take from it what you will. We all must interpolate something; even sir Francis Bacon recognized this in his Novum Organum. Respectfully, Kevin ps I believe opinions that are personal in the way of religion cannot be wrong, so I affirm the above sentiments, but said opinions should not be based on wrong information, thus I have put in my cent. So, back to the drawing boards...even CS Lewis would agree that not every assertion is true! FETVS does not mean "child." In Classical Latin, it does not.....C'est la vie.

I wanted to cry in reading that. It just breaks my heart. An eleven year old girl wants to stand up for the babies that are murdered, and those murders want to protect their rights to murder but not her right to have a voice for the unborn. The abortionist,murders (I refuse to call them prochoice because their only choice is to murder which is no choice for the child but for their selfishness) call fetuses not human. Are they not educated enough that they can't look up the Latin word for fetus? Fetus in Latin means BABY, or young one or young child. Such hypocrites. They want to stifle the rights of the unborn and the rights of free speech. They are not prochoice. They are murderers with their actions and tongues, their choice is to do evil.

SloppyJoe73 in spirit of your wonderful input, I would just like to say then if that is in fact what fetus truly means then scientists and many others have very wrongly abused that word and it's meaning. If fetus really defines the offspring of a plant than I believe the word should not be used at all in the stages of development in a human being. However I have looked up the word fetus, searching for its origin and meaning and I have only seen it translated to "young", but your input is very interesting, and I will be glad to look into it further.
