Small Beginnings

cosmeticevolution:

This is an embryo…at 5 days…inside the eye of a needle. Doesn’t look like any “baby” I’ve ever seen.

prowomanprolife:

Nope. It doesn’t look like an infant, because it’s not an infant. But it’s thoroughly human and thoroughly a person. I think it’s absolutely beautiful that a new human being can be so tiny and precious and vulnerable.

cultureshift:

We look different at every stage of life, but that doesn’t make us less human or less valuable. This embryo is exactly what a human is supposed to look like at this stage of life. An infant doesn’t look like a teenager, but doesn’t she hold just as much value?

We only devalue prenatal human beings for two reasons: we can’t see them and they don’t always look like us. We can only stomach killing them for one reason: they cannot speak.

YOU once looked EXACTLY like the human in this photo. And look at you now.
