When abortion activists are confronted with the reality of abortion, they routinely demonstrate their utter lack of knowledge about human development. To aggressively champion for a mother’s right to kill her ‘unwanted’ children, they must deny basic science. I say deny, because each of them were taught human reproduction during their mandatory primary education curriculum.
This denial manifests itself in their incorrect claim that the majority of abortions are committed against zygotes. No mother has ever intentionally aborted her child while passing through their zygotic stage of life. Why? Because they don’t even know they are pregnant at this stage. In fact, there is no test available to indicate pregnancy this early.
As you can see, a human zygote is simply a fertilized egg cell that results from the union of a female gamete (ovum) with a male gamete (sperm). In the embryonic development of humans, the zygote stage is brief and is followed by cleavage, when the single cell becomes subdivided into smaller cells. Pregnancy tests don’t work until the newly formed human being implants into the endometrium, creating a detectable hormonal change in the mother. This usually occurs between five to six days following fertilization.
This is what a human being looks like at the zygote stage:
This is what a human being looks like when most commonly aborted at seven weeks:
See the broken bodies of the victims of abortion. You’ll notice that none of them are microscopic single celled zygotes.
Education is the key to ending the tragedy of abortion.
