A developing unborn child

YouTube pregnancy video: From the first moment in the womb, “a tiny human thrives”

PregnancyChat has posted a beautifully informative video on YouTube that demonstrates the journey of every baby from fertilization to birth.

The video begins by saying:

Only two cells are needed to create a baby…two cells, and a miracle.

It continues, while showing the process of fertilization:

Gently nestled and protected in a mother’s womb, a tiny human thrives.

The 4 1/2 minute video – which has been viewed nearly 1,000,000 times – is composed largely of real-life ultrasound footage of preborn babies from early in their lives until just before birth. The video includes a glorious scene with a mother and her newborn, nestled tightly in her arms for the very first time.

Baby in womb, preborn baby, suck thumb

See 9 months in the womb in this amazing 4 minute video

Have you ever wondered how a baby develops so rapidly and fully in his or her mother’s womb? Well, this astounding short video demonstrates the mind-blowing process for us to witness. It’s a computerized, fast-paced – and accurate – window to the womb.

Here’s the description of the video on YouTube:

Life is truly wonderful! In fact, the development of human life in the womb is just amazing. Did you know that everything about you — including how tall you would be, the color of your eyes, and the color of your skin– was all determined at the time of fertilization? Month-by-month you grew in the safety and comfort of your mother’s womb until the big day of your birth finally arrived!

“Life in the Womb” is a fascinating video that gives us the story of the unborn child, and demonstrates the fetus development in the Uterus.

The day I died…with my unborn daughter still in my body

When I was pregnant with my first child I researched doctors and hospitals, knowing that not all hospitals and their doctors look upon unborn children as equally human and valuable as their mothers. I intentionally drove 25 minutes out of my way to see a pro-life OB/GYN and deliver at a hospital that I knew valued life at all stages.

Upon waking after nearly dying during childbirth, I saw how important that decision was in my life, and that of my child.

Viral photo of baby in amniotic sac proves humanity of the preborn

A few news sources have recently reported an extremely rare occurrence: a baby, delivered by emergency caesarean section at 26 weeks, with his amniotic sac still completely intact around his tiny body.

According to reports, this is something so rare that many OB-GYNs will never see it in their careers. In roughly one in every 80,000 births is the baby born with a portion of the amniotic sac, let alone the sac fully intact.

From this amazing photo of baby Silas Johnson, it’s easy to see his hands, feet, head, and little torso, which makes it more horrific to realize that in many states, it’s perfectly legal to rip him limb from limb in the womb through a late-term abortion procedure. According to the Guttmacher Institute, eight states have no gestational limits on abortion, meaning these states allow abortions at 26 weeks – and beyond.

Nurse who assisted in abortions now pro-life, opposes abortion

A nurse identified only as “Julia” talked about her experience as a nurse at a teaching hospital that did abortions. Her story appears at Priests for Life. She says:

20 weeks
20 weeks

I was a nurse practicing in North Carolina.  I worked on a Gynecology/tumor unit at a teaching hospital. The unit included 4 prostaglandin abortion beds.  The babies who were aborted were between 18-20wks of age.  Most women were young, but occasionally there were patients whose babies had life threatening defects.  I assisted the doctor in the initial placement of the prostaglandin.  Then the women were left on the floor to deliver.

Mississippi’s restrictive abortion law lands at Supreme Court for review

A Mississippi abortion law is the latest to arrive at the Supreme Court. Mississippi has asked the high court to review the decision of a federal district court that blocked a law from going into effect; that law requires physicians performing abortions to have admitting privileges in local hospitals.

Common in many states, the law helps ensure women’s safety by assuring them of quick hospital care should something go wrong during the abortion. But abortion advocates say it’s a ploy by pro-lifers to disguise outlawing abortions in the guise of safety.

Clinic worker: The first time I saw an aborted baby’s arm, I couldn’t believe my eyes

One could say that the best way to learn about abortion is to listen to the stories of those who have actually been there, in the rooms where abortions were performed- the former abortionists and clinic workers. These first-hand accounts, like the you one are about to read, are powerful testimonies of the inhumanity of abortion.

In the article “Abortion Clinics: an inside Look” published by Last Days Ministries and online here two abortion clinic workers tell their stories.

Abortion doctor condemns pro-lifers for “dwelling on the details” of abortion

For years, Dr. David A. Grimes has written books and manuals, detailing how to perform abortions.

Now, however, he is roundly condemning pro-lifers for “dwelling” on those exact same details. In an article for RH Reality Check, Grimes writes, with Carole Joffe, that the pro-life movement is attempting another “public-relations success” with new proposed legislation that would ban D&E abortions:

[T]hat same playbook is being used again in Kansas, Oklahoma, and South Dakota in a new campaign to outlaw yet another second-trimester abortion method, “dilation and evacuation” (D and E). Once again, the medical term for this procedure has been replaced by a garish one, “dismemberment abortion,” and once again, abortion opponents are hoping that dwelling on the details of this procedure will lead lawmakers to ban it.

Well, note to Dr. Grimes: pro-life advocates came upon the term “dismemberment abortion” because that’s exactly what a D&E abortion is. In short detail, a baby is literally ripped apart with metal instruments, limb by limb. While still alive, the baby is made into piecemeal and taken, bit by bit, out of her mother’s womb.

Medical intern horrified by late-term abortion of twins

In an article profiling the now deceased late-term abortionist Dr. William Rashbaum  (which I’ve referenced before) writer Rebecca Paley says late-term abortions are more dangerous than early ones, as well as more difficult to perform safely. But this is not why many abortionists don’t like to do them:

Technical difficulty, however, is not why many doctors don’t want to do second-trimester abortions. What troubles them is that as a pregnancy progresses, the fetus increasingly resembles a baby….

Kansas Senate advances “dismemberment” abortion ban

The Kansas Senate has approved a measure that would outlaw dilation and evacuation abortion procedures, usually done for second trimester abortions. In Kansas, this will affect about 8% of abortions. The bill redefines these abortions as “dismemberment” abortions.

Senate Bill 95 easily passed the Kansas Senate Friday with a vote of 31-9. The dismemberment section reads:

“‘Dismemberment abortion’ means, with the purpose of causing the death of an unborn child, knowingly dismembering a living unborn child and extracting such unborn child one piece at a time from the uterus through the use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments that, through the convergence of two rigid levers, slice, crush or grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body in order to cut or rip it off.”

Scandalous abortion clinic kills woman, stores frozen dinners with fetal tissue

About ten miles north of downtown Chicago lies Lincolnwood, a small village with a horrendous tale. In May, 2009, 18-year-old Antonesha Ross died after complications from an abortion at Larisa Rozansky’s Women’s Aid Clinic.

Shortly after her first trimester abortion, Antonesha began coughing up fluid and blood and had difficulty breathing. Clinic staff failed to provide CPR, and two hours after her abortion, the young mother was declared dead in a hospital emergency room.

New York City: Where pizza parlors are safer than “filthy” uninspected abortion clinics

In New York City, there is good reason to believe that your pizza is safer than your local abortion clinic as inspections have been few and far between. A bill in the state assembly, along with a new advertising campaign, aims to change that by asking for regular inspections of the city’s abortion facilities. The bill in the New York State Assembly, A03048 was introduced by Nicole Malliotakis (R-Staten Island). The bill notes:

“A recent Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request uncovered the fact that only 17 of the 25 abortion clinics in New York had been inspected between 2000 and 2012, and five of those 17 had received only one inspection during that time period. Eight abortion clinics received no inspections.”

The bill would require abortion facilities be inspected by the health department once every two years  and report findings to the governor and legislature, which is in accordance with the policies for restaurants and tanning salon inspections in the city.
