Life Outside the Womb When You’re 12 oz. 10 in.

pre-mature baby

Audrey was born at 25 weeks. This video (below) is neat because it gives a glimpse of the human person – who is normally still developing inside the mother’s womb at this point – and very visually testifies to the fact that unborn babies are not simply “parts of the mother’s body,” free to be disposed of at will.

It warms the heart, too.

If Audrey had been one week younger, she could have been aborted in almost every state for absolutely any reason or no reason. And abortions can legally occur in every single state up until birth if the “health of the mother” is deemed to be in danger. Unfortunately, this exception for the “health of the mother” can be legally twisted to mean anything remotely affecting the physical, emotional, psychological or even familial health of the mother. So, practically speaking, abortions can happen up until birth for just about any reason in any state.
