Unborn baby has organs and features in the 7th week

7 weeks

“In its seventh week [the unborn baby] bears the familiar external features and all the internal organs of the adult…The brain in configuration is already like the adult brain and sends out impulses that coordinate the functions of other organs…The heart beats sturdily. The stomach produces digestive juices. The liver manufactures blood cells and the kidneys begin to function by extracting uric acid from the child’s blood…The muscles of the arms and body can already be set in motion. After the eighth week…everything is already present that will be found in the full-term baby.”

“Scientists for Life, Inc. and Edward C. Freiling “The Position of Modern Science on the Beginning of Human Life, Faxton, VA: Sun Life, 1983) p 17
