Abortion at 6 Weeks

Surgical abortions are seldom done before six weeks, and medical (pill) abortions, which may be done at any time make up less than 6% of all abortions in the U.S. So it can be estimated that most abortions happen at six weeks or later. Here is what a baby looks like in the womb at six weeks:

The Grantham Collection has a picture of the hand of a baby that has been aborted at this age. Note how tiny the hand is but it is unmistakably a human hand.

Here is a photo of an embryo at six weeks.

At this stage, the brain is already giving off waves. The heart is beating and has been beating since day 18-24.  This is a tiny baby. 

Consider this when you think of abortion in the United States.
