Doctor sees living preborn child from ectopic pregnancy

Dr. Paul Rockwell of New York described a two month old fetus who was aborted due to a ruptured ectopic pregnancy:

“The tiny human was perfectly developed, with long tapering fingers, feet, and toes. It was almost transparent, as regards the skin, and the delicate arteries and veins were prominent to the ends of the fingers. The baby was extremely alive and swam about the sac approximately one time per second, with a natural swimmer’s stroke… When the sac was opened, the tiny human immediately lost its life.”
