New study further proves the inherent humanity of the unborn

Human beings, with human rights, from the beginning.

Abortion advocates have a big problem with pro-lifers describing the personhood of the unborn. Telling pregnant women about the inherent humanity of the children in their wombs can cause big problems for the abortion industry, so naturally, it’s important to keep the truth about unborn babies quiet.

Unborn child, 20 weeks gestation

Science, unfortunately, just won’t cooperate with the pro-aborts, and a new study has been released which further proves the inherent humanity of the unborn. This study has found that babies begin learning language in the womb, showing that these are human beings who are not only growing, but thinking and learning as well.

From their very first days, newborns’ cries already bear the mark of the language their parents speak, reveals a new study published online in Current Biology. The findings suggest that infants begin picking up elements of what will be their first language in the womb, and certainly long before their first babble or coo.

“The dramatic finding of this study is that not only are human neonates capable of producing different cry melodies, but they prefer to produce those melody patterns that are typical for the ambient language they have heard during their fetal life, within the last trimester of gestation,” said Kathleen Wermke of the University of Würzburg in Germany. “Contrary to orthodox interpretations, these data support the importance of human infants’ crying for seeding language development.”

… Wermke’s team recorded and analyzed the cries of 60 healthy newborns, 30 born into French-speaking families and 30 born into German-speaking families, when they were three to five days old. That analysis revealed clear differences in the shape of the newborns’ cry melodies, based on their mother tongue.

Specifically, French newborns tend to cry with a rising melody contour, whereas German newborns seem to prefer a falling melody contour in their crying. Those patterns are consistent with characteristic differences between the two languages, Wermke said.

Knowing that unborn babies are not only growing in the womb, but thinking and learning as well, shows that these aren’t just blobs of tissue. It shows that they are humans long before they are actually born. And while pro-aborts continuously seek to dehumanize these babies, the real science shows the truth.
