The following story was published just yesterday in the Dayton Daily News regarding the death of an unborn baby two days following a road-rage incident. The headline, “Unborn child dies 2 days after road-rage incident,” caught my attention with those two simple words: “unborn child.”
It’s rare that a mainstream media outlet would recognize that an unborn child is just that–a child. I grieve for the life of this innocent little one and I grieve for the family that lost their baby. I am grateful, even in the midst of this tragedy, that the media has recognized the significance of this little one’s life and death–even before birth.
