Notice anything interesting about this headline in the (online version of the) Washington Post?
Justices to hear abortion-related case that focuses not on fetus but on mother
Did you see it? If not, try again, with the opening sentence of the full article:
When the Supreme Court meets next week to hear its first abortion-related case in nearly a decade, the justices will consider the most significant challenge to an argument that has become central to the antiabortion cause: that abortion hurts not just a fetus but also its mother.
Give up? OK; what jumped out at me was the use of the word “mother.” A quick check in several dictionaries produced the same primary definition; a mother is a “female parent.” That is, a woman who has had a child. Not a blob of tissue; a child.
