Video: Conception to Birth

Stunning video done by a mathematician!

First, here’s one of my pet-peeves…because words matter. Let’s start using the proper terms. From Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beginning_of_pregnancy_controversy

In 1959, Dr. Bent Boving suggested that the word “conception” should be associated with the process of implantation instead of fertilization. Some thought was given to possible societal consequences, as evidenced by Boving’s statement that “the social advantage of being considered to prevent conception rather than to destroy an established pregnancy could depend on something so simple as a prudent habit of speech.” (Emphasis mine.) In 1965, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) adopted Boving’s definition: “conception is the implantation of a fertilized ovum.”

So when I hear “from conception to natural death” I’m irked. Using current medical terminology, conception means implantation in the womb. But fertilization–when sperm meets egg and new life beginscan take place up to two weeks before the new baby gets to the mother’s womb.

Also note in the video that “Egg inseminated” also means “fertilization”…the beginning of life! But I love how the word “baby” keeps showing up.

Okay, rant over. Take a look at this beautiful video! (Graphic image warning! Please preview before sharing.)

    This gives people a lot to think about, and the pro-death crowd plenty to rant about. Whatever needs to be done to wake people up to realize that abortion and birth control are wrong, I’m all for!

    Although I’ve yet to read the “Newsweek” article “War of The Wombs”, if what John Miles of Urbana, IL has said about it means anything, I have to comment. In his letter to “Newsweek”, Miles makes an acerbic(if that’s a strong enough word to describe it) comment; he takes a gentleman named Keith Mason to task because he and his wife have conceived their own offspring(Miles says of Mason, “Although I disagree with his views, I admire Keith Mason’s convictions. If he really walked the talk, however, he and his wife would be adopting their fourth child rather than creating more life themselves. There are many unwanted children born every day, and there will be thousands more if “Roe v. Wade” is overturned). First off, how dare this guy speak for the Masons, or anyone but himself?! Second, how can he tell who’s wanted from unwanted? Third, there will be fewer children born, and our population will die out if “Roe v. Wade” is NOT overturned! So the pro-abortion nuts need to turn themselves around!

    Today, I glanced at the front cover of “USA Today”, and saw an article that could spell the end of China’s one-child policy; though I did not get a chance to read it in its entirity, it said that law enforcement forces abortions on women to prevent them from giving birth a second time. It also added Beijing is starting to take notice. Let’s also hope this leads to OUR country overturning “Roe vs. Wade”.

    Today, one of the best friends of the pro-life movement was appointed Archbishop of San Francisco; Oakland Bishop Alvatore Cordileone.
