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, I wanted talk to you from the heart and share some information with you you might not know. If you are not a woman seeking an abortion, and/or don’t want to read my message just scroll down to see the pictures.
First I want to tell you a little more about your baby. I’m getting this info from the siteEndowment for Human Development, a scientific website affiliated with National Geographic. It has no ties to the prolife movement.
The baby inside you has had a beating heart for 9 weeks now. He or she has brain that is giving off waves. Your baby responds to touch and will how a startle reaction when he or she is touched with something. The baby will pull away and react when the abortion instruments come at her. Some scientists believe she can feel the pain of being ripped apart. She can have the hiccups. She is already right or left handed. She has lungs and “breathes” amniotic fluid to practice for breathing air when she is born. If she is a girl she has ovaries and a uterus of her own. Believe it or not, he or she not only has hands and fingers, but also fingerprints. These fingerprints mark her as a unique individual who has never existed before in all of history and will never exist again.
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 the pictures you just saw. She told me that after each abortion, she had to look through the torn apart remains and make sure there were two arms, two legs, one head ,etc. Any parts left behind could cause an infection in the mother. In a book by pro-choice author Wendy Simonds called Abortion at Work, clinic worker “Risa’ says:
“I hate it when people put it [the aborted fetus] together to look like a baby. I hate that…
On page 86-87 of the same book, Simonds says all the clinic workers she interviewed told her “they never look at the face” when processing ’tissue’ from abortions.
Right now you may feel frightened, worried and alone. I don’t know your situation, but I know there are places out there that can help you. There are these places called Crisis Pregnancy Centers. These centers exist all over the world. They can help with all kinds of things. The one in my town providers counseling, help finding medical care, a place to live if the woman is homeless, baby clothes, maternity clothes, cribs, diapers, information about applying for benefits if you choose to, job training, help finding a job, and even day care.
Also, most of these places will do an ultrasound. Most abortion clinics will do an ultrasound too, but they will charge you for it. The crisis pregnancy center will do one for free. If you DO decide to have an abortion, and you tell the clinic you have already had an ultrasound to verfiy length of pregnancy, they may say you don’t need another one- and you’ve just saved yourself a hundred dollars. The crisis pregnancy centers. can’t stop you from having an abortion, no one can, abortion is legal. But they can give you information about abortion’s risks and alternatives you may get at the clinic. And all their help is FREE. Whereas an abortion clinic is a business that makes profit and charges for everything it offers. The main reason abortion clinics have for turning away women and sending them home is not health problems, but lack of money. The owner of one abortion clinic said in the Chicago-Sun Times: (he didn’t realize he was talking to a reporter)
“We have to sell abortions. We have to use all the tactics we can because just like my other businesses [a trucking firm, a pollution control business, and a real estate sales office] we have competition. Now, we have to go by the rules, but rules have to be broken if we are gonna get things done.”
Former abortion clinic worker Nina Whitten says:
“Every single transaction that we did was cash money. We wouldn’t take a check, or even a credit card. If you didn’t have the money, forget it. It was unusual at all for me to take 10,000 to 15,000 a day to the bank – in cash. It’s a lie when they tell you they’re doing it to help women because they’re not. They’re doing it for the money.”
There are MANY more quotes like this here.
Clinics can only stay open if they make money. They even charge for pregnancy tests, often many times more than you would pay buying one at the supermarket. (and its the same test) They don’t make any money if you walk out and have the baby. But crisis pregnancy centers have no financial stake in your decision. They will give you information that the clinic won’t, because they are afraid of losing your business.
I will give you the numbers and contact info for the pregnancy centers if you scroll down.
But first pleae look at some of the pictures of what will happen to your baby at 12 weeks if she or he is aborted.
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.”
And now the crisis pregnancy centers:
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. They have a 24 hour hotline. Please call them at 1-800 550 4900
In the United Sates, Carenet is a Christian group of crisis pregnancy centers. They can help in many ways. Their page has an anonymous chat and they too have a hotline, as well as a directory you can search to find a center near you. Go here.
And here is an international directory of pregnancy help.
If you have had an abortion and need support, here are some links for you to try.
There are other options for you than abortion. What about adoption? A lot of women feel they can’t “give away” their baby. But adoption is not the same as it used to be. Now there is open adoption, where you can be in touch with the family that raises your child and even be a part of that child’s life. I have a friend who is therapist, who says that her clients who give babies up for adoption do much better emotionally than those who have abortions- because they know their babies are alive and happy and not dead. Another person I know gave her baby to a couple in Canada. Now she and the family are close and she spends every Christmas with the couple. She had another daughter, who she kept, and the girls are growing up like cousins. She didn’t lose a baby- she gained a family.
Please also know that abortion can cause a lot of heartache to you, the mother. Several huge studies in Finland that took medical records from several countries found that women who abort have a higher rate of needing psychiatric treatment both inpatient and outpatient and the suicide rate for women who abort is 6-7 times that of women who don’t. For teenagers, another study found a 10x higher suicide rate. Here are some studies.
Although women very rarely die of abortions in the first trimester, there are other risks. Having an abortion can create scar tissue on the uterus which can cause tubal pregnancy, a potentially fatal condition where a subsequent baby develops in the Fallopian tube. Also, scarring can cause infertility. Damage to the cervix, the opening to the womb, (the cervix is meant to open slowly during hours of labor, not wrenched open in seconds by the abortionist) can cause miscarriages, premature births, and stillbirths when it gives away in a future pregnancy. See studies here.
Also, there are no less than 58 studies showing a link between abortion and breast cancer. This is because the breasts begin to change in the first days of pregnancy to get ready to produce milk, but don’t finish changing until the third trimester. Aborting before then puts them in an intermediate state, more susceptible, some researchers say, to cancer.
Finally before you go to the abortion clinic, read about what other women’s experiences with abortion were like. Silent No More collects the testimonies of women who had abortions. It has over 2000 stories. if you read what these women are saying, you may get an idea of what abortion is like. Also, if you do have an abortion, Silent No More can tell you where support groups and other resources for post-abortion women can be found.Read what other women are saying.
And if you just want someone to talk to, feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Before you make your final choice I want to leave you with these words from a woman who had an abortion. When asked what she would say to other women considering it, she said:
Never killed the child. It will haunt you the rest of your life… Recognize that, if you have the abortion, you’re not only killing your child, you are killing someone’s brother/sister, someone’s cousin, someone’s friend, someone’s grandchild, someone’s mother, someone’s father, someone’s neighbor. Realize that abortion is killing children…”
