Please join national pro-life groups in tracing the development of the unborn child. “Baby Chris” has now reached 17 weeks of life since fertilization.
The size of a pineapple at this stage, children like Baby Chris are still often regarded as less than human, and at this stage, the horrifying procedures of dismemberment abortion are carried out on some of these children.
Various states, as well as the United States Congress, have taken steps to protect such children from dismemberment, but these legal efforts only have partial success so far. Knowing more about the development of the baby at this stage – and spreading that knowledge – can help strengthen the efforts to protect them.
