While the secularists, antireligious, transhumanists and sexual revolutionists keep implying that we pro-life, conservative, traditional, Republican Christian types hate science, the body and women, the fact is that we’re the ones who respect the body, especially the female body, and the God Who designed it, and the fact is that science is with us.
This video, found at Catholibertarian, is a scientist’s view of prenatal development: the wonder of the baby’s body and the wonder of a mother’s body.
Many debates have gone on about how accurate prenatal developmental models are. It’s important to remember two things: Some measures of the age of the unborn count from conception, others from the mother’s last normal menstrual period; also every individual develops uniquely. Just as some children look older at five than some others do at six, so some look older at eight weeks gestational than others do at nine weeks gestational.
The scientist who speaks in this video designed imaging programs for NASA. He’s seen stars and planets, lots of them. What he finds most astonishing to look at is a baby. So do we. They’re so beautiful. Human beings are some of God’s most amazing artwork.
