Well, this is interesting. Just when it looked like the phenomenon of woke toddlers sharing their insights on the Trump administration had been killed off with the help of Chelsea Clinton, Slate decided to up the ante by publishing a piece by “A Fetus.”
It’s funny, because progressives have been arguing that late-term abortion should be legal because a fetus has no feelings, and yet this particularly woke clump of cells finally decided to break its silence to pen a letter to the Office of Management and Budget.
I think that, could a fetus write, it would prioritize an abortion ban over chewing out the director of the Office of Management and Budget

Yeah, well according to its “bio,” the author “is a fetus who will be born sometime during the Trump administration,” so it must be one of those wanted fetuses that some people like to call a “baby.”
WHOA: Slate's new columnist, A Fetus, wrote a scathing letter to Trump budget director Mick Mulvaney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!https://t.co/FMdLnC4QZ5

@Slate Oh, are fetuses people now?

Why did the fetus reach out to Mick Mulvaney? Because it wanted to share its solution to avoiding those budget cuts that can never be mentioned apart from the otherwise useless word “draconian” — “I just raised taxes, muchacho. It’s not rocket science.” A Fetus also touches on the Social Cost of Carbon and yet remains selfish enough not to beg to be aborted to eliminate its own carbon footprint.
Really excited to welcome this new contributor to Slate dot com. https://t.co/aKemfUlSFT

@publicroad Slate publishing complaints written by "a fetus" makes me want to go vomit and then weep.

@publicroad What? Is this a joke? What is this superimposition of an adult political voice onto an unborn child supposed to achieve? Seriously.

@Slate Next: A fetus writes an open letter to Slate describing his anxiety over the fact that his mother has been talking to Planned Parenthood.
