Pictures: Abortion at 9 Weeks

unborn baby at 9 weeks

Before you look at the pictures of the babies aborted at 9 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 are pictures of babies aborted at this age

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.”

Or call this number for help and someone to talk to 1800 550 4900

Birthright is another excellent organization that helps women considering abortion. They have many centers throughout the world. 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.

    For those who are thinking about me, whether negatively or positively, just to update you:

    My termination has rudely shaken me out of the relationship I had formed outside my marriage.

    Has shown me that my husband is a much betetr man in every sense of the word that this **** who wanted nothing but depraved physical pleasure and couldn;t even accompany me to the clinic when this happened.

    Has shown me how blessed I am to have two beautiful boys and has made me more committed to looking after them and not spending time with another man that should been reserved for my family.

    I am really sad that a life that would have grown into something as beautiful as my boys, had to be stopped in it’s tracks for all this to happen; however, some part of me believes (or wants to believe) that maybe this was the purpose of this little life? To re-guide it’s mother, who has always been religiously anti-abortion and was a very faithful woman prior to this other man entering my life (there were reasons that made the situation ripe for cheating; like a sexless marriage but no justifications for cheating, a culture where divorce is looked down upon and divorced women especially are socially stigmatized). At the same time, I was so early (the doctor had

    I don’t know that with my age, maybe the baby would not have been born healthy or I may have miscarried anyway; but that’s not something I am taking a lot of comfort in.

    I was careful while with this man (we were using pull out that he assured me was foolproof. I didn’t have much sexual experience prior to this…also, being 41, I had to an extent, started believing what everyone says on the internet about declining fertility. Took the emergency pill and the one time after that that we met, we used pull out again, I was on my fertile days and asked him to wear a condom and he pleaded with me to let him enter for a few minutes without it and he would put it on later and like a wimp, I gave in to please him, hindsight being 20 X 20, I know I should have insisted but pull out had been working for us all this while..except the time before this last when he accidentally came in me and I took the Emergency pill.
    I also feel the ‘responsibility’ for risky sexual behaviour was more his than mine, and at best, it was per him, it’s not his responsibility at all, why did I ‘let’ him do it without a condom? He has always said things like I don’t know what the women I’ve been with do for contraception…let the girls worry about that….never pro-actively suggested we use condoms and when I did, pressurized me not to. Always bragged that he didn’t like condoms…they weren’t foolproof anyway…nothing else was needed if pull out was being used etc. etc…..he’s got away unscathed from all this (please don’t tell me he’s be affected too, he’s not, trust me…he’s simply relieved it’s all over)

    I am in the sad situation of having been a staunch pro-lifer all my life (I am 41) and then now at the age of 41, having to have an abortion as the pregnancy due to intercourse outside marriage. It’s been 2 months and I have known no peace, day or night after the event. I badly want to feel like I did nothing big – I was 5 weeks from my last menstrual period and had a medical abortion at home which felt just like my normal period would be and I certainly did not see anything, tissue or sac etc. The doctor had told me it was really small and not a very healthy pregnancy which she thought might be because I had taken the morning after pill which apparently did not work.

    While I can totally understand how repugnant all my actions leading up to the termination (I’m sorry but I can’t bring myself to use the other word for termination) will seem to most people – and I am more than willing to be chastised for them – I thought of commenting here because I want to share thoughts about something I feel strongly about after having been through all this.

    One thing that we all must realise is; abortions will always sadly happen. Contraceptive failure, bad judgement, temporary lapses of sanity (which is what I probably went through) and a host of other reason; in societies such as rural India (I’m from India btw)..forced sex and women not being allowed to use contraception and also not being allowed to abort with the consent of family members….etc.etc.

    If people who call themselves Pro-Life (this is strange to us in India btw as there are no such groups or nomenclature used), accept this inalienable fact that abortions will always happen, then we can move towards ensuring that the abortions that have to happen, can happen as early as possible, minimizing any pain/suffering and horror that the fetus and the mother (yes, even women who abort feel bad, really, really bad about it) might have to go through. I should think that people who care about the suffering and horror a fetus goes through in an abortion, should want to make early medical abortion really easily accessible to all women who will then just need to take a pill in most cases and bleed like a period; thereby preventing more pictures like the ones shown here. What do you think about this?

    • Sarah says:

      If life begins at conception (and over 41 medical textbooks on anatomy, embryology, and other aspects of medicine say it does) then pro-lifers can’t accept any abortion. A baby’s heart starts beating at three weeks. Before most women even know they are pregnant. It may be tiny, even tiny enough to miss in an abortion by pill or injection, but it has a beating heart. In fact, even calling it “it” is a misnomer- sex is determined at conception so its already a he or she.

      It saddens me that a pro-lifer would choose abortion in a bad situation. I don’t judge you, but I am sorry you felt abortion was your only option.

    Some people are so stupid. Baby’s aren’t this formed and unrecognisable as a human, I lost a baby at 9+4, I passed the baby on my bed sheets, they have arms.. And shock horror they have fingers and toes! I know because I saw my own child that passed from my own body. I knew exactly how far I was as I’m high risk and have weekly scans from finding our I’m pregnant.. But they say ignorance is bliss so I guess that’s why some deny the recognisable features of a foetus at this stage…

    People who choose abortion will always try to justify their reasons and belittle what they have actually got rid of. Scan pictures of babies at 8-10 weeks show little arms and legs moving around. They are tiny formed humans not justacluster or cells or skinas someone suggested. The reason after abortion they may look like this is due to be ripped or expelled from the womb too early so they literally fall apart on contact with the outside world. Theyre so tiny and fragile of course they dont stay in their original form. Like placing jelly near a radiator it will just dissolve almost. These images are shocking and rightly so as everyone who makes this decision needs the full facts rather than blissful ignorance. This is the truth, these images are what early aborted fetuses look like. If it means anyone is more careful i order to never need an abortion then great. While i appreciate not every abortion is down to irresponsible sexual precautions most are no matter what people say as the rate of abortions is higher than the contraception failure rate

    I came to this site because it has very high Google SEO for “abortion at 9 weeks.” From the name of the website “clinicquotes” I did not realize this is very clearly anti-women, anti-choice propaganda.

    I just had an abortion after being told I was at 9 weeks 2 days. I asked to see the pregnancy. Not only did the fetus (it can only just barely be called that, since it’s just after the eight week mark) not have fingers and toes (come on!!) but it did not yet even have hands or feet. Honestly it wasn’t particularly recognizable as human.

    I have no idea where these sick people dig up or create these photos, but this is clearly designed to deceive women into not having abortions. When they have them, they’ll realize how deceitful the pro-”life” movement really is toward women. Very sad.

    • Kelly says:

      I 100% agree with you.

      This site was probably designed as lie to lure people in for actual facts, evidence and advice.

      Its such a shame, THIS SITE could steer people toward suicide if they already felt bad enough. Its disgraceful.

      Im pretty sure Jewels Green doesn’t exist or is lying about having one in the first place.

      They probably also think someone who was gang raped by 15 men and fell pregnant (not knowing which one it actually was) should endure the entire pregnancy and either give it up for adoption or keep it. I understand killing another person is wrong but within 12 weeks is acceptable if that baby wouldnt have a decent life.

      Im 34, i had one at 6weeks when i was 24 – i was in an abusive relationship, the child would of endured it too. I have a tattoo as a remembrance. I now have 2 beautiful girls who have great lives because of great parents.

    • Sarah says:

      I am not surprised that you want to deny that an unborn baby at 9 weeks is this developed. But all you have to do is look at the site The Endowment for Human Development which is run by the the National Institute of Health and is in no way connected to the pro-life movement. Here at this link you can see a video of a 9 week old unborn baby moving her arms and legs around in the womb It’s really a very remarkable video, and it demonstrates that this website is telling the truth.

      Either the suction machine in the clinic you went to was turned up so high the baby was completely torn apart, of the abortion clinic deliberately deceived you by showing you only part of the remains. It wouldn’t be the first time.One abortion clinic worker I interviewed said they did that all the time. Did you see them take the remains directly out of the jar with no handling?

      These pictures are factual and the Endowment of Human Development, which is sponsored not by a pro-life group but by National Geographic. confirms it.

    • Kelly says:

      Have you ever seen an ultrasound image at 9 weeks? They have hands and feet in the womb.

      I found this web site because I am 9 weeks pregnant and I googled baby size at 9 weeks… Right now, the baby is the size of a grape and has fingers and toes.

      I don’t mean to judge you for your decision, but I am judging you for denying the facts.

  11. Stacy says:

    All I have to say is, everyone is responsible for their own choices and decisions!!! All the people that are talking so much crap, y’all should’ve been aborted!!! You don’t need to hurt nobody with such cruel words, these ladies are going through enough!!!! Leave these ladies alone, unless you are honestly trying to help!!!!!

    This site just gives us all the more reason to support sex education, the morning after pill and readily available and affordable abortions, so that women who wish to have them can have them as early as possible, hopefully before the fetuses have developed little hands and feet and make such heartbreaking pictures. I myself have had two abortions and have had deep misgivings, though I won’t say regrets, about both of them. I also have one lovely daughter and I can definitely say that of my three pregnancies, the result of the third one was infinitely happier than the result of the first two. The second one I had very, very early term, just a few weeks, and they gave me the embryo. It did not have a head or hands or feet and looked just like a little piece of dead skin, about the size of a penny. In an ideal world, we wouldn’t have a reason for women to choose abortion. We may not get there but I think it’s within our grasp to build a world where abortions past 8 weeks are almost never necessary if we concentrate on education, access to birth control, early pregnancy detection and access to early term abortions. Of course, other options can and should always be considered, of course, such as whether there’s a way to make keeping the baby work for the mom, as well as adoption.

  14. Anonaame says:

    I came to this site because I wanted to find out exactly what happens to the fetus during an abortion. I’m 8 weeks 6 days pregnant with my 5th child (6th pregnancy) one miscarriage and 5 live births by c section. I’m scared to have another c section and I’m scared to have an abortion . Although another child isn’t what I want, I also take responsibility for making it. It is murder without a doubt. Raped or not. Makes no difference. I’ve seen my babies heart beat. It’s alive. Fingers or buds it makes no difference. Arguing wither it’s right or wrong is pointless. It’s a choice. I will say this though, my first pregnancy was a miscarriage. It hurt and I cried. I cried for many years. I used to light a candle in the month that baby would have been born. It was very heart breaking. I have had 4 daughters since then. And although I looked up this page because I wanted to be informed of options, I could never bring myself to murder my own child. Especially after having 4. And Ide like to add that everyone that I personally know that has had an abortion has regretted it and has told me to never have one. That’s all, thanks have a nice day.

  15. Samantha says:

    I am 9 weeks pregnant and yes came across this site just googling “9 weeks.” I have handled dead baby body parts, little hands, little toes, but I am able to keep my opinions to myself and not try to sway the womens opinion about abortion. Sure they cry and lose a child, but for them it isn’t the right choice. This should be a more informative site not a guilt trip about murdering babies. Did you know all of these womens exact stories? What about the 15 year old girl that gets raped every day of her childhood by her father and winds up pregnant? Do you think she really wasn’t raped and should have an inbred child when she is still on herself? I just think all the facts should be gathered before you all go accusing women of murder. You have no idea what their life is like, what’s behind the cries, or what their future holds with or without another life.

  19. Ann says:

    Why should these pictures sway a woman’s descision? They shouldn’t. A woman can choose. These pictures are trying to make women feel bad about abortion which is just inappropriate and immature. And just because someone you know had an abortion and they feel bad about it now shouldn’t be a factor in another woman’s choice making either. It’s a massive decision and everyone’s situation is different. These actually really disturbing photos, it looks like you have a collection of cut up babies. I’m pregnant right now and happy about it, it was planned and I’m definitely keeping it. I stumbled across this website after searching for “9 weeks pregnant”. I believe that women have the right to choose however.

    • Sarah says:

      We live in a country where abortion is legal, so yes, women have the right to choose. But they also have the right to know exactly what it is they are choosing. I know that if I were considering abortion, I would want to see these pictures first. I would want as much information as I could to make my decision. It might be true that it would be harder to abort after seeing them, but i would rather see them before I got the abortion than stumble upon them after. That is just my opinion.

    • Nicole says:

      It’s a child not a choice honey

      • Stephanie says:


        Ann- It’s “immature” and “inappropriate” to make someone feel bad about paying a group of people to mangle and kill their unborn child? Well, ok…
        And FTR, I’m also pregnant and stumbled upon these when searching for nine weeks pregnant pictures on Google. I’ve always been very pro-life, and this only concretes that for me. How you can say that it’s inappropriate to make someone feel bad for “choosing” what we all saw in the pictures above is *beyond* me.

  20. Kacee says:

    These pictures are completely inaccurate. At 9 weeks, a fetus is simply not this developed and that has been medical proven. At this point in gestation, the fetus has arm and leg “buds”, it does not have hands and feet as shown. These pictures are meant for shock value. If you are considering abortion, do not be deterred by false facts and religious bigots who have no interest in your well-being. It is a hard decision, but it is ultimately yours and it does NOT make you a bad person. Abortion itself is very SAFE. In fact, it is MUCH safer than vaginal birth or a C-section. In addition, the SAME procedure used for abortions is used for women who have natural miscarriages. This is simply one of the safest, quickest, painless procedures and is the most common medical treatment preformed in the United States. There is NO proof that you are more likely to have complications with future pregnancy’s or births. This is a straight out lie. In fact, if you don’t tell anyone they will NEVER even know you had the abortion. I had an abortion at 9 weeks while it was very emotional, I do not regret it. I do not lose sleep over it and I had ZERO complications. The procedure itself took less than 5 minutes and was painless. I went on to have a very healthy child and I am pregnant with my second. If you are facing an abortion, there is hope and there is help. You are not alone and you are not a murder. You are human. Take the time you need to make the choice that is right for you. Do not be swayed by fake stories or shocking pictures from pro-life people who want to use hate and fear to force an unwanted pregnancy. You will be ok.

      There are numerous studies that show a correlation between abortion and premature birth, ectopic pregnancies, and miscarriages, they have been published in reputable journals. You can read about some of these studies, with citations, here.

      As for complications, the truth is, no one really knows how safe abortion is, because there is no legal requirement for doctors to report abortion injuries. All statistics on abortion are compiled by asking abortion providers, who can choose to answer the cdc’s queries or not. It’s all voluntary. This website documents cases where women have died from abortions, and some of these women were never even recorded as deaths in the abortion statistics, because coroners may put “infection” as the cause of death instead of “infection after abortion.” abortion may be far more dangerous than the commonly quoted statistics show.

      Kacee, I am a physician and I am a mother. I have studied fetal development for my profession from images from the anatomy books when I have not heard of abortion or pro-choice/pro-life or when the internet was not even in every home. I have seen the actual week by week bodies of babies from miscarriages donated to the medical school. A nine week fetus HAS discernible hands and feet. A six week fetus has limb buds. These images are not for shock factor. These images simply tell the viewers what a 9 week aborted fetus looks like. I will not proselytise to you. Believe what you want to believe. Make your choices but please DO NOT spread your ignorance or false “knowledge” to anyone.

      • TPitts says:

        Thank you Dr. Quincy for dispelling ignorance. People often want so desperately to believe things which put them (and their choices) in better light. I appreciate your correction of someone’s foolishness before it spreads farther.
