A Real, Live Human Being

When I went to my prenatal appointments, we would take pictures of Avalon via the ultrasound. I would study those pictures each month, and I was surprised by how well-developed she was while in the womb. I could see her tiny hands, and I watched as she would put her thumb in her mouth, blink her eyes, and yawn. She was so precious, so delicate, and so beautiful! After looking, evaluating, and cherishing those precious photos, I realized how soon life is created and formed in the womb, and I knew that what was growing inside of me was not just a blob of tissue, but a complete and formed baby – a real, live human being. Now, obviously, my perspective on abortion has changed… At one time I was pro-abortion; now I am pro-life.
