Now fetus is a bad word? Apparently to the New York Times, with this headline that was published on Monday, May 9th., “New York Times Apologizes After Wordle of the Day Is ‘Fetus‘.
Emotions are running high around the word “fetus” after last week’s news about the possible end to Roe V. Wade and women’s right to safe abortion.
F-E-T-U-S is also a five-letter word, so some people were more than a little surprised when it ended up as one of the answers to Monday’s Wordle.
The realization of the more-than-timely puzzle answer led to a midnight panic as the New York Times rushed to change the answer on the platform. Any browser that refreshes the Worlde page should receive the day’s updated puzzle. Those who don’t will still potentially have “Fetus” as one of the two potential answers for the day’s puzzle.
In a statement, the Times wrote “this is a very unusual circumstance,” adding “We’re now busy revamping Wordle’s technology so that everyone always receives the same word. We are committed to ensuring that tens of millions of people have a gratifying and consistent experience, every day.”
Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, and Pastor of the Christian Revival Center, both centrally located in Harrison, Arkansas, spoke out saying, “These leftist are trying to remove God, and his laws from our White, Christian country. It happened many years ago when God and prayer were both removed from our public school systems. That was just a start of things to come. As a Pastor, I can assure you that abortion is murder. The Bible tells us that. By making ‘fetus’ a buzzword, this is an attempt to dehumanize a living person. There is no age at which point murder is ok. From the time of conception, God has created a human life. A fetus is a creation of God. These murderous leftists know this, and they think if erasing the word fetus, somehow God will forgive them. I can assure you of this as well, God will not forgive the murder of His creations”.
