Her older sister laughed so hard she nearly choked on her pasta while I replied, “A fetus is an unborn baby.”
“Oh. Well, fetus and penis shouldn’t sound so much the same because they’re confusing me.”
Tara’s not the only one that’s confused. On March 8, International Women’s Day, Congress celebrated by taking up another bill that would further restrict women’s reproductive freedom. I suggest taking the time to sit with our daughters at the dinner table, clear up any confusion and discuss what’s at stake.
