After all, when a pregnant woman undergoes a c-section procedure, the pregnancy is aborted. The purpose of the c-section is to preserve and protect the life of the infant. The same is true of induced labor. The objective is to abort the pregnancy, not to kill the baby.
Snuffing out the life of a prenatal human will certainly abort the pregnancy, but it simultaneously aborts the life of the child.
Apart from natural child birth, many procedures could be termed "abortions" because they abort pregnancies. In these cases abortions of pregnancies are preferred because they save the lives of the children, not destroy them.
There needs to be a distinction between life-saving pregnancy abortions and life-taking pregnancy abortions.
But I don't suppose the term baby killing with ever catch on.
