You think someone you know had a difficult pregnancy? A 32-year-old mother-to-be in Germany found herself in a serious accident recently. According to The Local, the woman was driving along when she felt her unborn child give her a swift kick in the side. The pain was so intense that she apparently lost control of her vehicle, struck a lamppost and promptly flipped the machine on its side. From there, it slid into a garden fence and came to a stop.

A friendly passerby was kind enough to help the woman out of her car through the trunk, and while she was taken to the hospital for minor injuries, both she and her kicking baby were found to be in good health. The vehicle looks to be a total loss, however.

      What a great story for these parents to be able to tell their kid-- "You wrecked my car before you were born!" (Wonder if we're talking about a future F1 driver-- "Hey, mom, STEP ON IT!!"

      I respect the author for using the phrase 'unborn baby' instead of 'fetus' or some some other euphemism like so many others who are either oblivious to the fact or deliberately deny the human growing inside the womb of a mother. Thank you, Mr. Bowman, for affirming the human life, dignity, and value of unborn babies.

        1) "so many others who are either oblivious to the fact or deliberately deny the human growing inside the womb of a mother." No one denies the seed of a human mammal is growing inside of a woman. Ever. 2) Fetus isn't a euphemism for anything. 3) An unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception is no longer defined as a fetus. This baby kicked, so by definition it's an unborn baby. 4) This post wasn't written by Mr.Bowman 5) You're not very smart.

          FYI: A human fetus is from 8 weeks to birth, not before 8 weeks. Basically, an animal of any species becomes a fetus when all of its major bodily structures are present and recognizable. Both "fetus" and "unborn baby," in my view are technically correct. My personal convictions, however, cause me to prefer, "unborn baby."

        Nice eye, man. I absolutely agree with you.. I find it very pathetic that some human can care so much for a dog slaughtered, or whales being hunted, but not for a dropped unborn human without any valid reason.

        The terms "fetus" and "fœtus" are not euphemisms. It is a clear, precise, and uncontroversial term. On the other hand, "unborn baby" is a contradiction in terms. It implies there should be a baby, but that for some reason it was not born. Why not swing for "unborn child" or "unborn human" if you dislike the "f-word"? It's an emotional use that has no place in science, nor in the news.

          You should really get yourself a dictionary. un·born [uhn-bawrn] adjective 1. not yet born; yet to come; future 2. not yet delivered; still existing in the mother's womb Unborn baby does not imply that there should be a baby, it implies that there is a baby that hasn't been born yet. The use of the "f-word" is definitely less emotional. It is used politically to provide legal cover for Abortionists.

          "It's not a "baby" until it's born." That's why they used the adjective "unborn"; it's a baby that has yet to be born. The term unborn baby is perfectly accurate and easily interpreted. The term "fetus", while also technically accurate, is not as easily interpreted and therefore favored by Abortionists to justify their actions. It is very controversial.

          Not exactly trolling, now is it? It's not a "baby" until it's born. Saying otherwise doesn't make it so; and we have a whole body of science that puts Justin in the right. Besides, it's good practice in news media to use accurate, uncontroversial, and easily interpreted terms. "Unborn baby" is none of these.

      Why does anyone believe this crap as written? Of course that isn't what happened. The woman fell asleep at the wheel, was talking on her cell phone or whatever and came up this excuse to try and avoid any repurcusions.
