Royal Baby Glee Leads To #RoyalFetus Talk On Twitter From Anti-Abortion Conservatives

Excitement over the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby was too non-political for the taste of some.

Naturally, this joyous occasion was the perfect time to have a conversation about abortion.

So why are they talking about a #royalbaby and not a #royalfetus? Because we only call it a fetus when the mother wants to kill it

How come all the pro-abortion baby killers are calling it a "royal baby" and not a "royal fetus"? Enlighten me.

And shoehorn politics into the conversation.

Shouldn't liberals refer to the being within Kate Middleton's womb as the royal fetus, not the royal baby?

Somewhat confused about this #RoyalBaby hoopla. Isn't it still a Royal fetus? Or like a Royal mass of cells? Help me out here @BarackObama

Someday, a Royal Fetus will be aborted. And it will have been #ObamasFault, too. #p2

With a shot at Wendy Davis.

If only Princess Kate had chose to #StandWithWendy she would not have to deal with this #RoyalFetus

And a sprinkle of media distaste.

Shouldn't NBC be calling it "The Royal Fetus" I mean....it's not out yet and I'm sure an abortion is still on the table #TCOT

Funny how the media doesn't refer to Kate's kid as a 'royal fetus'. No, they say 'baby'. Guess it's only a fetus when it's not wanted.

Topped off with commentary on President Obama's words about Trayvon Martin.

President Obama - "51 years ago I could have been that #RoyalFetus "
