Posted on 07/10/2014 6:58:57 AM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random:
The direct killing of an unborn child. It is always murder and therefore gravely sinful. (Etym. Latin fetus, the young in the womb + -cidium, a killing.)

But we do hear the word 'infanticide.' Seems that refers more to a newborn infant, though and not the fetus.
