House: Baby or Fetus?

It's not very often that a television show dares to tackle the pro-life side of the abortion issue but Fox surprised us all. In last Tuesday's re-run episode called "Fetal Position," Dr. House (who will annoy the heck out of you) referred to his patient's baby in the womb as fetus. The mother-to-be persisted and called her baby, baby.

Mother-to-be had a decision to make--abort her baby or die. She refused to abort. Long story short: when House cut into her belly to perform surgery on the baby a tiny hand reached out of the womb and held onto House's finger. House was mesmerized. Oh if every child could reach out of the womb! House then referred to the baby (still in the womb) as, baby.

The show ended with House sitting on his sofa, cut away to mother scooping up her healthy baby son. Well done Fox.


"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart." (Jeremiah 1:5)

WOW! I got chills reading this. How totally AWESOME for Fox to air it again. Glad you shared it.

Lots of changes going on in the Castello. I'm attempting to catch my blog up. :o) It's nice to know that I was missed. :o)
