What a Baby Looks Like at 12 Weeks Old
This is an amazing photo taken of a 12-week old fetus that was aborted by a woman who did not want it.
Despite my personal beliefs regarding abortion, I find it shocking even after 12 weeks, it resembles a baby. It is human, not just a vague resemblance of a human form most are familiar with.
I am pro-abortion still, I think all women should always have the right to choose regarding this issue. A woman should never be forced to have a baby she does not want because all that does is creates other problems for the agencies dealing with them. This eventually creates a monetary burden on the overall system, like it or not. Maybe these kids who grow up unwanted or living from one foster home to another end in criminal activity or have other social issues. Maybe not, but the only time the State or Federal government should prevent an abortion is if the woman has waited past the danger point to herself or the child.
What about the father?
If the baby was created out of a real relationship, not just hooking up for a night or nights, while the father has no ability to stop an abortion, there should be some mechanism allowing for it. Maybe by mutual agreement, the father would raise the baby if the woman wants nothing to do with it.
Abortion is such a personal issue and this photo makes one think twice about it.
