Last Sunday, a crazed gunman entered a Texas church and shot over two dozen people in the congregation.
Here’s what CNN tweeted the Sunday after the shooting incident:

Did you catch it?
Of the victims, an eight-months-pregnant mother was killed.
CNN however failed to identify her child as a person, reporting the death toll was “25 people and an unborn child.”
Some people on Twitter immediately took an issue with the tweet, per IJR:
26 people. Be careful, CNN, your bias is showing.

Trying to redefine "unborn child" as a nonperson. #fail

An abortion isn’t considered murder of an unborn child but this is considered murder of an unborn child? That doesn’t make any sense.

I surely don't understand the distinction you draw between the 25 people and an unborn child… Its a human as well. I know biology can be tough

26 people then.

26 unique DNA coded humans were once alive, and now are not. That means, 26 people died. #science

So to be perfectly politically left, @cnn is saying, 25 people's lives, and one persons "choice", were taken away that horrible day.

You mean 26.

It should be noted the First Baptist Church recognized “Baby Holcombe” as a separate person in their memorial. They placed one pink rose in the seat as seen in the featured image.
CNN accurately reported 26 people were killed in a number of other reports.
