Man becomes pro-life after seeing “tissue sample”

Jim Caley decided to get involved in the pro-life movement after he saw the body of a preborn baby at the lab where he worked:

“Jim spoke of working in a lab where one day he was sent into a storage room to get a tissue sample and there saw a perfect baby in a jar of formaldehyde – another “tissue sample.” That event affected his heart and thinking to where he was drawn to oppose abortion more actively.”

it is not clear whether this baby was aborted or stillborn, but the child was being handled simply as another specimen, with no recognition of his or her humanity.
