12 Unborn Animals In The Womb You Have To See To Believe

Thanks to Buzzfeed for this story

These images were created for a National Geographic special called In The Womb: Animals by Producer Peter Chinn. He used a combination of ultrasound technology, tiny cameras, and computer design to create these incredible images that replicate what fetal animals look like. This is an incredible window into the womb (or egg as the case may be), laying bare the mysteries of the beginning of life! Makes you wonder

Clump of Cells?

Clump of Cells?                         

Wait a minute, what? That’s an unborn human being isn’t it? For every other entry in this series, we realized that the animal inside the womb was the same type of thing as the animal outside the womb. Why should it be different for human beings? It would be dehumanizing to use dissociative language like “clump of cells” in this instance.

Unfortunately however, this particular fetal life in the womb is treated as less than human—it isn’t given the full rights of “Personhood” in the United States. And for that reason, this little one can be killed through abortion. Seems unjust doesn’t it? We think so. If you agree, please sign the Ten Million for Life pledge, which declares that all human beings should be recognized as full persons.
