Pictures: Abortion at 12 Weeks

Here is what a healthy unborn child looks like a 12 weeks:

Before you look at the pictures of the babies aborted at 12 weeks, I want to share something with you. If you are woman considering abortion, and you came to this page wanting to find out more, please read the short little message that my friend Jewels Green wrote just for you. If you are not a woman seeking an abortion, and/or don’t want to read it, just scroll down to see the pictures. Jewels Green worked in an abortion clinic. Her clinic only provided 1st trimester abortions. She held women’s hands, watched women cry as they had their abortions. And in the backroom, she handled the broken pieces of the babies, holding the aborted babys’ feet up to a little chart to verify how far along the pregnancies were for the clinic’s paperwork. Even in the 1st trimester, many of the babies were fully  formed, like this one.

Jewels Green also had an abortion herself. She deeply regrets it. Her abortion led to a suicide attempt and many many years of emotional pain. She has experienced abortion both as a provider and as a patient.

When I spoke to her about this page, I asked her what she would want to say to someone considering an abortion. She sent me the following:

Dear Mom,

You’re thinking abortion is the right thing to do. Abortion is the best–and only–solution for you right now. How can you afford a child? What will your parents say? What about school? What about your boyfriend or husband?
Please take your time to think this through. “I have thought this through,” you say. “This is the only way,” you say. “This just isn’t the right time in my life for a baby,” you say.
Give me a chance, I say.
This isn’t the right time for me to die, I say.

And here is what an aborted baby looks like a 12 weeks:

Have you ever seen pictures/videos of aborted babies before?

Read Jewel’s Green’s testimony here.

Here is an excerpt:

“Working in the autoclave room was never, ever easy. I saw my lost child in every jar of aborted baby parts. One night after working autoclave my nightmares about dead babies were so gruesome and terrifying and intense I met with the clinic’s director to talk about my feelings. She was very understanding, open and honest, and painfully forthright when she told me, “What we do here is end a life. Pure and simple. There is no disputing this fact.”

Birthright is another excellent organization that helps women considering abortion. They have centers mostly in English speaking countries. They are not affiliated with any religion. I called them once. When I told them I was pro-life, they made a point to tell me they were “not political” They will not try to sway your decision.

    I’m more sad to see mothers flipping-out with born children from what I can only assume was because the pressure got to her which results in abuse, neglect, and sadly even death in some instances of some born children. And of course we sit from afar criticizing, ‘how could a mother do that to her child.’
    I sometimes wonder if all that heartache could have been eliminated if the woman had a choice. Would have, could have, I know.
    We all naturally want to give our children the best shot at a happy life. As mothers, I believe that instinct comes before the child is even born. Maybe mom-to-be wants the child to have committed parents, a loving home, and resources to support the little one?
    We live at a time of unmeasureable options. Whether to continue or abort life. Whether to stay committed to our partners and support our families or leave to find a better alternative. It’s all just messy and every single one of us is doing the best we can do every moment of our lives.
    That said, I couldn’t be the doctor aborting births and seeing those images in my daily life. I also could neither be a butcher (therefore don’t eat meat) nor kill terrorists (therefore I am not a soldier). No judgements on meat eaters or soldiers or doctors, only respect. We are all doing our best.

    I have had two abortions in my life. One when I was young and another that I terminated because I had only known the father for two months. I did both early on thinking that they were just a mass of cells. I am pregnant again as a consequence of date rape and scared to death. But after doing my own research, at 10 weeks, I realize there is no way for me to even consider this a possibility. I had never thought about the actual procedure and what it meant for the developing fetus. I knew they sucked it out of you, but to think of the little thing being torn to pieces. I see now how this is murder. I regret my uninformed choices in the past and know that I must take responsibility for my actions and try to be the best mommy that I can.

    I had an abortion about 12 years ago. I allready had my son who is now 20 . The aborted baby was to my sons father but he talked me out of having the child and after the abortion he left me again. I was around 12 weeks pregnant. I have blocked it out over the years. I was unaware like others that my baby was formed. If id have seen these pictures i would never have gone through with it and wish i had, had a scan . Im heart broken

    You know what- I have to make amends- somehow. I just posted a post a few minutes ago. But now it has just occurred to me – after looking at the further pictures of the little smashed babies above-that I need to make amends- to these two little ones of mine. its sinking in- minute by minute. Hadn’t even sunk in as much fifteen minutes ago when I began writing my first post on your website- and it seems to be sinking in even more by the minute- like veils lifting. And as a another veil lifted, it just occurred to me that I need to make amends, I owe them sorry and much more than that- amends- somehow

    My girl friend has finished university,shes 13 weeks pregnant.however shes been put on pressure by her family members to abort,i refused,when they insisted i took the matter to our chaplain of our church and i informed the pastoral team…i told them am ready to look after the child and to marry the girl if she is willing.At the moment the family of the girl is threatening me if i go ahead to stop the girl from aborting. In my country abortion is illegal,however i took the matter to police but its not helping…i lost contact with the girl and i dont know if she hasnt aborted or not…

    Sad and utter sadness! Those we should protect,we destroy! if I only could turn the clock back 14 yrs ago, I’d have gone through with the birth, even though I’d have done it alone!mentally, a price to high to pay! Pls ask 4 help, turns out my family would’ve supported me! If only I’d asked for their help, I didn’t realise that I had so much support, my sis even said she would have adopted the baby! I’m forever mentally scarred, I’ve been on pills for 10 yrs now,,,,,don’t be like me, pls think about all options available to you. God Bless xXxX sharon

    I have had two abortions, the last one twenty-seven years ago. It brought me to the LORD, and have since been a pro-life advocate. Seeing those pictures are so sad…it must break God’s heart what we are doing to His creation. I pray for this doctor to continue to share her experience with her personal wake up call. Only the God of the universe can change hearts and minds.

    The invention of abortion is a shame, & it should NOT be used as a form of birth control. All the facts should be presented to both parents, or all involved if possible. The only exceptions should be in cases of extreme circumstances such as rape, heavy drug abusers, or other damaging terminal celluar complications; which in this age of testing & technology should be able to be established as early on as the cells begin to develope.

    • Irisha48 says:

      no matter when an abortion is performed, no matter the sad circumstances it is still the taking of innocent human life and though some, after due diligence and prayer may get off the hook with God, I certainly would go very cautiously forward and spend the rest of my days repenting and praying He would forgive me for playing God with one of His precious children.

  14. receivetruth says:

    You said it well. The worst thing ever is not receiving the truth about abortion from the very beginning. Understanding we ultimately have a choice in everything we do, yet at a young age & certain upbringings we are highly influenced by other important people in our lives, especially by parents & those we think we love & respect their opinions. Unfortunately it’s 99 % of the time that abortion is the idea of the fathers of the unborn babies, or the lack of training & willingness of both for excepting responsibility for their actions. All i can do now is ask & trust God to forgive me & help me deal with it every day of my life, & hope their little lives were able to continue in heaven, because Jesus said forgive them Father for they know not what they do.

    I have had two abortions both around 10 weeks. I was really young with the first one 16. With the second i was just selfish i didn’t want to be with the father. Both times i was told that the fetus was not “alive” it was about the size of a kidney bean and not formed at all. Its a mass of cells they said.
    I am pregnant now and had my first ultrasound a week ago at 10 weeks. That baby inside has arms, legs, and moved when the nurse tapped on my belly. At that moment I thought about those two “masses of tissue” they were alive they were babies. You could never imagine killing a newborn could you? I never thought i would either. But i have and I’ve done it twice. Thinking about it looking at the ultrasound pictures breaks my heart. I wish i would have been better informed. I wish i would have done my own research. I wish that i would have looked when they did an ultrasound at the clinic. They don’t show you for that reason. they don’t want you to know that the Mass has feeling can move out of the way if it feels someone tap on the outside. At the time i agreed with abortion for my own reasons. I didn’t want kids. I was still one. but had i known then what i know now i would have helped the people that were picketing while i was there. This is honestly the murder of babies and most of them perfectly healthy ones.
    Think and do your own research before you consider having an abortion. don’t let the clinic people lie to you. These fetuses are whole very early. Just look at the pictures. Their are other ways. Adoption. Their are so many families who can’t have children and so many babies who are just thrown away.

    • Mike says:

      thank you for your openness, and I pray for you. I was wondering something, maybe you can answer my question.

      When mothers searching the internet considering an abortion, they get a lot of information, except the truth. The truth is what you wrote above. Most of the time there are no pictures of 10 week old babies on websites that inform about abortion; they want to let the people believe it is just a piece of tissue. Do you think that pictures of aborted fetusses will influence the choice of mothers who are considering an abortion?

      • Malessa says:

        I think photos of preborn babies (or miscarried babies) of various ages can be helpful in education people about what the unborn look like. IMO aborted images would not really be helpful because they are harder to look at, than a peaceful looking, whole fetus.
