Below you will find pictures of abortions at different stages. Before 6 weeks, an abortion leaves nothing that looks like body parts behind. The tiny embryo is completely shredded during the procedure. The embryo at that early stage does not have visible human features such as arms, legs, etc. . If you have a medical (by pill)abortion before 6 weeks, you will not see baby parts. (surgical abortions are seldom done before 7 weeks) However, the embryo’s heart starts beating at 16 days and he or she (sex is determined at conception) has brain waves at the end of the 5th week. So even before 6 weeks she is a living, growing, tiny human being.
But pictures of abortions from 6 weeks and up show human body parts.
At 6 weeks, fingers are just beginning to separate. The hand of a 6 week old baby in the womb looks like this.
The baby above is a six week miscarriage still in the sac. A baby aborted at six weeks would look like this if the abortion was by pill.
By the 7th week, very recognizable fetal parts are left behind.
At 8 weeks, the baby looks even more human. You can see hands, feet, eyes, and ribs.
At 9 weeks, the baby is even more developed
Over 40% of all abortions are done after 9 weeks . At 10 weeks, the fetus has a very recognizable face
At 11 weeks, the fetus is even more developed
12 weeks is the end of the 1st trimester.
Post-28 weeks: (third trimester: legal in a number of states, restricted in others)
