A new type of ultrasound scan shows how complex a fetus has developed as early as 12 weeks.
From the article:
From 12 weeks, unborn babies can stretch, kick and leap around the womb – well before the mother can feel movement
From 18 weeks, they can open their eyes although most doctors thought eyelids were fused until 26 weeks
From 26 weeks, they appear to exhibit a whole range of typical baby behaviour and moods, including scratching, smiling, crying, hiccuping, and sucking.
Until recently it was thought that smiling did not start until six weeks after birth.
Wow. Check out the link to see images from the scans. This scan confirms that an child in the womb is more than a collection of tissue. I think it proves the pro-life argument; it’s not a choice, it’s a baby.
