Powerful Photos of Life in the Womb

15Sep15

* This is part of an article by Tiffany Orborn who wrote about the experience of her son being born prematurely at 19 weeks gestation.  It is so powerful to see an unborn child so definitely human at such a young age.  The pictures and mother’s words say it all.* 

People say they are pro-choice so they are pro abortion, but here’s my opinion on that: you had a choice to take birth control to prevent a life, but when you conceived, you created life. It is no longer your body; it is two bodies. It is your body and an innocent baby growing inside you, and to make the choice of abortion is to take a life.

For those who say they learned that their child had something wrong with them at 20 weeks, like Down syndrome or something else, you say it would be selfish of you to keep that baby, because of the type of life that baby would live. Every life matters. Who are you to say that their life is not worth living?

For people who choose abortion because it wasn’t the right time, there’s also choices for you. You are pro-choice— you chose not to use protection—but there is always another choice: adoption.

I delivered my sweet baby at 19 weeks and 5 days. I went into premature labor. It happened so fast. He lived for almost two hours. He was fully developed— even had little fingernails and toenails— his ears were not fused to the back of his head anymore.

I delivered right before 20 weeks, so it is very painful for people to tell me that they think abortion should be OK to 24 weeks, because the baby has no choice of living. My baby lived for two hours, so tell me how that is not taking a life?

    Thank you for sharing your experience, and photos of your beautiful little one. I’ve always been pro life. I was born 6 weeks premature, with many complications, but I am now a 33 year old mother of 4 sons. Sons I was told to abort due to my heart defect. I have always been pro life, and I always will be. I’m very sorry you lost your baby, and I know it may be very difficult to share such intimate family photos with the world, but I thank you for doing so. Seeing your little angel helps me show examples of proof of Life to my children. All of my sons are pro life, and my teen has expressed how important it is to him to find a spouse who agrees wholeheartedly. And your two hours, proof of life outside the womb at 20 weeks, hopefully will change minds and hearts about life at all stages. I agree with you that to be pregnant is to no longer have sole ownership over your body. I wish more mother’s saw the creation life this way.
