Abortion

 

Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;

Before you were born I sanctified you;

I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

 

At conception the baby receives 23 chromosomes from each parent. He or she is truly a unique individual human being, never to be repeated.

 

18 days from conception, heart begins to beat, with the baby’s own blood.

28 days from conception a baby has eyes, ears, and even a tongue!

Muscles are developing along the future spine. Arms and legs are budding.

 

30 days: Brain has human proportions. Blood flows in veins.

 

42 days: Skeleton is formed. Brain coordinates movement of muscles and organs. Reflex responses have begun. Brain waves can be detected,

 

44-45 days: Buds of milk teeth appear, and the unborn baby’s facial muscles develop. Eyelids begin to form, protecting the developing eyes. Elbows take shape. Internal organs are present, but immature. 99% of muscles are present, each with its own nerve supply.

 

At eight weeks, your baby is officially classed as a fetus, which means ‘little one’ in Latin.

 

8 Weeks: Every organ is present. Baby’s heartbeat is steady. Stomach produces digestive juices. Liver makes blood cells. Kidneys begin to function. Taste buds are forming.

 

8 ½ Weeks: The unborn baby’s fingerprints are being engraved. Eyelids and palms of hands are sensitive to touch.

Of the 4500 structures in the adult body, 4000 are now present in the unborn baby. The skeleton of the arms and legs and the spine begins to stiffen as bone cells are added.

 

10 Weeks: The unborn baby’s body is sensitive to touch, If you prod your tummy, she’ll wriggle away.  He/she squints, swallows puckers up brow and frowns. Eyelids, fingerprints and even fingernails are evident.

 

20 weeks- you’ll see a proper little person, fully formed.

 

Week 24 At this point, your baby is classed as ‘viable’ – in other words, she would stand a good chance of surviving if she was born now.

 

Psalm 139:15–16 NIV

My frame was not hidden from you

when I was made in the secret place,

when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

all the days ordained for me were written in your book

before one of them came to be.
