Below you will find abortion pictures at different stages. Some of the abortion pictures are graphic, but they show the reality of abortion.
Note: I’m measuring by fetal age, counting from time of conception.
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 23 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 abortion pictures 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 after conception, the baby looks even more human. You can see hands, feet, eyes, and ribs.
At 9 weeks, the baby is even more developed
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 several states, restricted in others)
Now you have seen the abortion pictures. Do you find them hard to believe? Go to the Endowment for Human Development’s fetal development pages to verify that the abortion pictures are accurately labeled. Endowment for Human Development will show that the fetal development information given here is accurate. This website is not connected with the pro-life movement in any way and is not religious.
Its facts and footage (of living preborn babies in the womb) are taken from National Geographic.
For more information about abortion, look on other pages of the website. You can read women’s stories of their experiences having abortions, abortion’s physical and psychological risks, the stories of former abortion clinic workers and abortionists, and more.
Note: All pictures are labeled by the estimated age of the baby – counting weeks from the moment of conception. Counting length of pregnancy from a woman’s last period will add two weeks to the numbers.
