This is a photo of a human egg emerging from an ovary. Did you know that when a baby girl is born, she already has about 1,000,000 ovarian follicles? That means she developed her eggs while living in the womb in preparation for bearing future children.

Each ovarian follicle contains a hollow ball of cells with an immature egg in the center. During childhood, approximately half of ovarian follicles are absorbed by the body. By the time a girl reaches puberty and her menstrual cycle begins, only about 400,000 ovarian follicles are left to develop into mature eggs.

If you abort your daughter, you are also aborting the eggs she would have used to bring your grandchild to life.

Women’s rights begin in the womb.

  1. Amazing photos…. After emerging as an egg, the embryo grows to 10,000 times larger in the first 4 weeks than when it started out. By 24 weeks the heart is beating regularly. During this first 4 weeks the eyes are developing, the foundation is laid for the brain & spinal cord, and the arm & leg buds appear. (Human Developement Resource Council) During the 6-11 week period all the baby’s organs have been formed and he/she is less still less than 3 inches long. At 40 days brainwaves can be measured, at 6 weeks the baby can respond to stimulation, & at 8 weeks suck his or her thumb. (National Geographic’s “In the Womb”)
