(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The same media organ that nearly launched WWIII, that fostered a bogus J6 narrative, regurgitated the Biden regime’s warped definition of “recession” and infamously demanded that the descriptor “black” should be capitalized, the Associated Press has declared the term “late-term abortion” to be obsolete.
In its newest release of their stylebook, used by news platforms for guidance on consistency of terms, the AP forbade the use of the phrase “late-term abortion,” according to Blaze Media.
“Do not use the term ‘late-term abortion,’” the official account for the stylebook demanded in a tweet. “The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists defines late term as 41 weeks through 41 weeks and 6 days of gestation, and abortion does not happen in this period.”
As an alternate the AP instructed to “use the term ‘abortion later in pregnancy’ if a general term is needed, but be aware that there are varying definitions of the time period involved. Be specific when possible.”
The stylistic mandate did not receive a warm embrace.
“Do use the term late-term abortion, because it is accurate and happening across the country,” advised LifeNews, which called the ACOG “a pro-abortion group”.
“As a supposedly unbiased news source you shouldn’t rely on partisan groups to determine your terminology,” LifeNews admonished.

“Well, if @AP wants to replace ‘late-term abortion’ with ‘pre-term infanticide,’ I’ll agree,” one critic tweeted, while another noted that, “Again definitions are being changed in blatant attempts to mitigate the horror of what ppl are actually doing.”
Don’t call it “the Holocaust.” Instead, use the term “right-sizing the citizenry”

“‘Late-term abortion’ is too aggressive a way to describe stabbing a viable unborn baby in the heart with a needle containing potassium chloride & delivering its lifeless corpse,” blasted a critic of the AP’s latest newspeak. “The absolute ghouls populating our elite class traffic in euphemism because they have nothing else.”
