Stunning images of preborn children show that human life begins at fertilization

Incredible images of preborn children show the miracle and beauty of human life in the first trimester of pregnancy. These stunning images share that preborn children are not “clumps of cells” or merely “tissue,” but humans who possess inherent dignity and the right to life. Although small, children inside the womb are persons who deserve the love and protection of society, simply because they are human.
