Generally, the use of clinical terms is viewed as cold and unfeeling. 'Fetus' may not be anti-life per se, but it sounds terrible. Do preachers refer to the dead body at a funeral as a corpse or cadaver? Why not?

It's all about intent. If the royal mother decided to kill her child in the womb, then it would no longer qualify for babyhood. It is the ultimate expression of existentialism, because her choice determines reality.
