Q: How have new discoveries about the human embryo forced pro-choice advocates to rethink their arguments?

A: It’s fascinating what modern science has discovered. Electron microscopes can produce images of embryos at every stage of a baby’s development. For years, abortionists have said that the early embryo is just a “ball of cells … not a human being.”

Evolutionist quote of the week

“By the end of the eighth week, the face resembles a primate, but is still not quite human.”

– Carl Sagan, Is It Possible To Be Pro-Life and Pro-Choice, Parade Magazine, April 22, 1990, p. 6.

According to this “blob” theory, the cells were all the same, and none had yet become hair, blood, etc. But research has since found that cells begin to take on special purposes on the day of conception!

It appears that, even after the first cell division, the cells differentiate between the top and tail position, and all future cells seem to adopt a similar orientation.

The details aren’t yet fully understood, but it’s clear that the “blob” theory has no basis in reality. On the other hand, the Bible’s teaching still stands. Genesis teaches that God created man in His image, and a newly conceived child is fully human.

As usual, the scientific evidence makes much more sense if you accept the Word of God as your authority, and then build your thinking from that foundation.
