Fetal Rights Victory! Utah high court rules fetuses are 'minor children'

Four of the five justices conclude the "plain language" of the term "minor child" includes an unborn child.

I had to laugh at this statement:

Justice Ronald Nehring disagrees. He says calling a fetus a "minor child" is far from general usage and is specific to anti-abortion rhetoric.

Except "child" is what everyone calls a fetus, even Canadian law.
