In one of Live Action’s undercover videos, a Planned Parenthood staff member tells an undercover actor that the abortion victim images displayed by pro-lifers outside abortion facilities aren’t real. “Yeah. They’re fake,” she claims. “There’s no way that they could have obtained those pictures.” But recently, Live Action News unearthed in what appears to be a presentation connected to the largest professional association of abortion providers which shows that images of abortion victims are, in fact, authentic. While the abortion industry tells women that their preborn children are mere ‘clumps of cells,’ the images below reveal that they’ve always known the truth: preborn children, even in the first trimester, are recognizable as human beings.
Warning: The images below may be disturbing.
The 2009 slide presentation, “The Basics of First-Trimester Surgical Abortion Workshop,” is clearly marked “National Abortion Federation” (NAF) and indicates that it was either created by NAF or created for a NAF event.
The document does not refer to the preborn child as a baby, but rather as “the product of conception,” “specimen,” or “the pregnancy.” It instructs abortion providers to examine the “pregnancy tissue” because doing so “1) Assures that the pregnancy was successfully removed 2) Confirms your estimation of the stage of pregnancy and 3) May provide evidence of abnormal pregnancy.”
To do this, the document suggests three methods:
- Strain the aspirate.
- Float the specimen in water.
- Use backlighting.
In “Tissue Examination,” the document instructs on how to identify the so-called products of conception, stating, “Understanding what tissue to expect at various gestational ages will help in determining when you have successfully emptied the uterus.”
The majority of abortions are committed before the fourteenth week of pregnancy but women are not always given accurate information about fetal development at that stage, especially early in pregnancy.
- According to Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate” and research arm, the Guttmacher Institute, “Two-thirds of abortions occur at eight weeks of pregnancy or earlier; 89% occur in the first 12 weeks.”
- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states that the majority abortions are committed at or less than the thirteenth week of pregnancy.
According to the 62-page presentation, fetal remains after a first trimester abortion would be visible as follows.
Three to seven weeks: “Trophoblastic villi, (which are cells that form the outer layer of a blastocyst) will be “cottony,” fluffy, white, and nearly transparent… No Embryo.”
Eight weeks: “May see fetal parts, digits will still be webbed.”
Nine weeks: “Fragmented or intact fetal parts, including elbows and knees, digits no longer webbed.” The slide (image below) appears to show extremities, such as part of an arm and hand.
Ten to twelve weeks: “Fetus—at this point you should see all 4 limbs and other skeletal and somatic parts (ribs, vertebrae, calvarium, intestine, heart, eye spots, etc.)” Slide below:
Even though privately, some abortion industry workers admit that aborted children have recognizable body parts, they tell their “customers” it looks nothing like a baby. However, additional images of fetal remains included in the “first trimester” document (without specification to weeks) disprove this claim and can be seen in the images below:
Despite numerous denials that pro-life images are authentic pictures of aborted preborn children, these images, published by abortion insiders, are markedly similar to those published by Citizens for a Pro-life Society, Created Equal, Center for Bio-ethical Reform (CBR), and others, including some published by Live Action News. Despite the marketing deception from the abortion industry, they are clear and undeniable evidence that what is being “aborted” are not merely “products of conception” but tiny beautifully formed human beings deserving of protection.
Abortion profiteers often tell women that the preborn child is not identifiable — and in some cases, after being removed and torn apart by high-powered suction, that may be true, but only AFTER the abortion.
Below is a picture of Baby Riley, who was miscarried at seven-and-a-half weeks. Of course, any child aborted at this stage of pregnancy, when their tiny soft tissue is pulled apart by a high powered suction machine will most likely appear unidentifiable.
Stunning images of fetal development at the earliest stages of life have been published at Live Action News, which you can view here.
