Don't they typically remove the organs and stuff? Why would they leave it in there?
/other than if it were a fake

Fox News seems to have put a draft version of that story on their website, because I missed the part where they explain that because an ancient Egyptian mummified a fetus, Roe v. Wade is automatically overturned.

It was a miscarried baby that was buried in its own sarcophagus, not a foetus still in a dead woman's body.

"Most of them were collected by the Victorian pharmaceutical entrepreneur and archaeologist Sir Henry Wellcome on excavations in Egypt."

shiat, he can't even spell his name right.

Oh, I was confused because they said it was full size. (or implied it, I read the article but I'm going off the "the face was painted as a male" part)

Upon further inspection of the article, I have very selective reading comprehension and will see myself out

Im confused. Does the fact that it contains a fetus negate the fakery of the nonsense hieroglyphics outside? There`s not effort to actually explain that in the article. I`m pretty sure they had dead fetuses in the 17th century they could use in their fakes. The Irish were crafty like that.

The article states that fake hieroglyphics could just mean that the family wasn't literate. Sounds plausible to me.

I'm guessing the mummy was a woman who died in childbirth, and the mummified fetus was a souvenir for the afterlife. Yeah, thanks for the reminder of my untimely passing, guys. Real sensitive.
