In today’s modern age, it’s difficult to avoid the fact that unborn human beings are alive, growing, unique individuals – from the very first moment they come into existence. Yet some still manage to close their eyes to reality. It’s important to understand the things we claim to support. It’s essential to be aware of all the facts, not just the ones that seem to support our position.
And so, for anyone involved in the abortion debate – and for all those who are unsure exactly where they stand – here are five important videos. These short videos show just what that unborn baby in his mother’s womb looks like, at various stages of development. Modern scientific videos like these demonstrate that unborn babies are not:
- A clump of cells
- Part of his or her mother’s body
- Similar to a virus or
- Merely “potential” life
Rather than showing what abortion does to babies (you can see that here and here), these five videos demonstrate the reality and beauty of human life. Human life isn’t only beautiful after birth. Human life is beautiful – and worth valuing – at every stage. At the moment of fertilization, a new, unique human being comes into existence. She has her own unique DNA sequence that is present at that very moment. All she needs is a chance to grow and develop.
Who are we to deny her the chance that each of us were given?
As one person put it after viewing one of the videos below:
To be a fetus is just a part of life, just like being a baby, a teen or an elderly.
1. Conception to birth – visualized
2. The baby’s beating heart at 4 1/2 weeks (The heartbeat is present at only 22 days.)
3. Watch your baby grow! Week by week ultrasounds
4. Unborn life, through the stages
5. A 4D ultrasound journey from 8-34 weeks in the womb
As a special bonus, here are 10 Reasons Not to Choose Abortion.
