The development of human life in the womb was once a mystery, but science and medicine have changed that. Abortion advocates still try to dehumanize the developing baby in the womb by speaking of the child as “a blob of tissue” or “uterine contents.” But ultrasound images, prenatal surgery and other advances in obstetrics are shattering the blob-of-tissue myth.Dr. Paul Rockwell, a New York physician, made these profound observations after his amazing encounter with a tiny unborn baby boy: “Eleven years ago while I was giving an anesthetic for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (at two months gestation), I was handed what I believe was the smallest living human ever seen. The embryo sac was intact and transparent. Within the sac was a tiny human male swimming extremely vigorously in the amniotic fluid, while attached to the wall by the umbilical cord.
“This tiny human was perfectly developed, with long, tapering fingers, feet and toes. It was 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. This tiny human did not look at all like the photos and drawings and models of ‘embryos’ which I have seen, nor did it look like a few embryos I have been able to observe since then, obviously because this one was alive!
“When the sac was opened, the tiny human immediately lost its life and took on the appearance of what is accepted as the appearance of an embryo at this stage (blunt extremities, etc.)
“It is my opinion that if the lawmakers and people realize that this very vigorous life is present, it is possible that abortion would be found more objectionable than euthanasia.”
The point at which Dr. Rockwell witnessed this unborn baby — eight weeks after conception — is during the period that a majority of abortionists describe as most desirable for performing an abortion.
In a 1990 hearing at the Minnesota Capitol, an attorney and his wife found a creative and irrefutable way to testify to the life of the unborn child. Find it in the C-SPAN video beginning at 1:54:
