An editor is going to get fired at the New York Times?

Richard John Neuhas at First Things thinks so. They let a quote on medical research slip through describing a baby as, gasp, a person!
“The difference is that the heart and kidney belong to a single individual, while pregnancy is a two-person operation. And this operation does not run in perfect harmony. . . . A mother and her unborn child engage in an unconscious struggle over the nutrients she will provide it.” Two persons? Unborn child? So far the slips have not been noted in the “Corrections” section of the paper.
