“Imagine holding your baby before he or she is born,” says the headline.
No matter how hard they try, abortion advocates cannot hide from the technology that will continue to make their arguments moot. The latest business to capitalize on the advances in ultrasound technology may not be one every parent longs to patronize, but it is another reminder of the reality of life in the womb as a 3D printer will create a virtual baby for parents.
3D Babies, a California company, says it will create a fetal doll from the mother’s 3D/4D ultrasound pictures:
We create an adorable baby figurine resembling your baby’s facial features and body position. We use your 3D/4D ultrasound images or newborn baby pictures to create a unique artistic representation of your baby using the latest computer graphics and 3D printing technology. This is a great way to share the excitement of your new baby with family and friends. Your 3D Baby will be a treasured family remembrance of your pregnancy and new baby.
Of course, mothers planning an abortion are unlikely to commission a $600 model of the victim. But the existence of these models will surely become known, and they will eventually be seen by more and more people as the price comes down. At a minimum, it puts the lie to the gross euphemisms employed by the pro-abortion movement to disguise the nature of the act they support as a ‘right.’
While a fetus figurine isn’t going to be everyone’s idea of a great investment, the fact that a fetal model can be crafted with accuracy is another blow to the abortion movement, which loses more ground every time something like this happens.
In 1973, when Roe v. Wade was ruled, we did not enjoy the technology that today is commonplace. Women were not able to get lifelike images of the babies in their wombs. Deception is easier when the truth can’t be seen. In 2014, the ability to see a baby in utero is so simple that the arguments that it may not really be a “live person” fall to the floor quickly. Instead, technology has made it possible to see behind the wall and love a baby with a face well before the baby shows his or her face to the world.
3D Babies may or may not prove to be a successful business venture, but it has managed to remind a nation once again that the baby bump is actually a baby who is alive.
