Person First Language

In the last several years, the zeitgeist has begun insisting on “person first language,” and so it is now fashionable to say “enslaved person” instead of “slave,” “person with a mental health condition” instead of “mad man,” “person with autism” instead of “autistic,” and so forth.

I have no interest in commenting here what I think of this fashion. I would simply like to suggest that Christians begin insisting on the term “fetal persons” or “unborn persons” whenever possible.
