Jonas who?

I am old enough to remember the blizzard of 1978 that hit Ohio over a two day period.  It was a horrible, horrid storm that left over fifty people dead and many houses and buildings either damaged or destroyed.  People still talk about it.  But, it has never been called anything but the blizzard of '78.
By all accounts the storm that hit the east coast this weekend was brutal.  Large amounts of snow paralyzed cities and millions of people were impacted.  "Jonas" will talked about for days, weeks and years to come.
How is it that storms are anthropomorphized and given names but babies in the womb are dehumanized, ripped apart and tossed out? 
That this storm happened the weekend of the Roe v. Wade anniversary is not lost on me.
It's a weird, weird world we live in.
