The vast majority of surgical abortions take place between the seventh and thirteenth week of gestation. (Incredibly and tragically more than a few happen even after that -- up to and beyond even the point of viability!) Very few of them occur before the seventh week because it takes that long to find out you're really pregnant and then schedule the abortion. This video shows just how incredibly developed the baby is even at seven weeks. I am convinced that if everyone in America saw this video, we would go from having a slight majority who are pro-life to 90%.
"The Biology of Prenatal Development" presents human prenatal development throughout all 38 weeks of pregnancy, emphasizing the first eight weeks (the embryonic period) when all body systems and more than 90 percent of body parts emerge and begin to function.
This award-winning science documentary features rare imagery of the living human embryos and fetuses while they are growing inside their mother's womb. Produced in conjunction with and endorsed by human development experts, this DVD combines facts gleaned from the medical literature with images produced from six different imaging technologies.
This visually compelling program is intended for general audiences and may be shown in public settings (but not broadcast or shown in theaters). It communicates an unparalleled visual appreciation of early human development.
