A Personal Essay by John M Jones III (3/31/19)
According to many medical professionals babies are very active in the womb. “By eight weeks of pregnancy, a fetus responds to touch around his lips and cheeks, and by 11 weeks, he has begun exploring his own body and his warm dark nest with his mouth, hands and feet. Ultrasound scans show babies touching their buttocks, holding onto the umbilical cord, turning and walking up and down the amniotic sac wall on the inside, says Als. They are not passively quiet in the womb.” (8)
“Research shows that unborn infants respond to more than just physical touch—they respond to their mother’s emotional state as well. When mothers watch sad films, babies move less. But when a mother laughs, says Als, ultrasound images show that the baby kind of trampoline bounces. When she laughs harder, the baby bounces even more exuberantly. It’s fascinating, she says. There’s such an interaction between mother and child on all levels.” (8)
Here are some other interesting fact about babies in the womb: THE HEART STARTS BEATING AT 18 DAYS, EMBRYO TO FETAL TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS AT NINE WEEKS THE FETUS IS READY AT SIX MONTHS, THE FETUS ARRIVES WITH 300 BONES, THE FETUS CAN FEEL TOUCH, FINGERPRINTS OCCUR AT TEN WEEKS, FACIAL FEATURES ARE RECOGNIZABLE AT FOUR WEEKS. (9)
Knowing what we know about babies why is it that today we have swamp creatures from both political parties supporting the legal murder of almost 900,000 babies in the US in 2017 (10) The infanticide of the human race was legalized in 1973 thanks to a woman who now regrets it. (11) Today's planned parenthood and many elected politicians continue to encourage this genocide of the human race. Let’s see some examples shall we?
“Planned Parenthood is largely the reason why black babies are aborted in America three times more often than white babies, and Hispanic preborns are killed 1½ times more often than whites. In fact, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention research compiled by TooManyAborted.com, Abortion is the number one killer of black lives in the United States. More than HIV. More than heart disease. More than cancer. Abortion snuffs out more black lives than all other causes of death combined.” (12)
What Planned Parenthood does offer en masse in its “clinics” — which are strategically located in target areas such as college campuses and in impoverished, inner-city neighborhoods — are birth control and abortions. In fact, a baby is aborted at a Planned Parenthood clinic at an average rate of every 90 seconds. (12)
In a letter to Clarence Gable in 1939, Sanger (founder of pp wrote: "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members" (Margaret Sanger commenting on the 'Negro Project' in a letter to Gamble, Dec. 10, 1939). (13)
"The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." The woman responsible for these words is the same women who inspired the racist theory of eugenics, popularized by the Nazis during World War II. She is additionally responsible for the millions of babies lost at the brutal hand of Planned Parenthood. She is Margaret Sanger, and the proclaimed inspiration of present presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. Hillary speaking at Planned Parenthood Convention. Life News (14)
In 2019 we had this happen, “Democrats block Senate GOP bill on infants surviving abortions” (15) “A standing ovation for abortion? That’s what New York’s Reproductive Health Act got in the Senate chamber when it passed last week. Lawmakers and bystanders stood and applauded a law that legalizes abortion all the way up until birth, for any reason” (16)
The simple and plain fact is that abortion are irrelevant in today's society. No one really looks down upon women who are pregnant out of wedlock. No one really bats and eye when they see or hear about women “living in sin” as some used call it. The stigma of being pregnant and not married is no longer a factor. Both women and men can pretty much do what every they want when ever they want and no one really gives a flying leap. What most people do care about is NOT killing a babies! Those who know recognized it as murder plain and simple!
There are millions of people who would die themselves for just an opportunity to care for an unwanted child once its born. Are people so selfish that they would rather kill a child than have 9 months of pregnancy? If the average woman lived to be 80 years old, then 9 months would equal .9375%. So, LESS THAN 1% of their life span would be inconvenienced by this “healthcare problem”. Are they so selfish that they would refuse to give that unwanted child an opportunity to have a life just like them?
Has the world fallen so much that one person can with the passing of some paper money, or a credit card kill another human being KNOWING that that child could be given to another who would cherish them? What about the fathers’ rights as a parent? Why are those not considered after all HIS dna makes up 50% of the baby? Shouldn’t the father have the ability to save HIS child’s brains from being sucked out until his head implodes? SICK!
It’s not rocket science. We must all cherish & give life because there ARE people who would and will cherish these little ones and love them even if you refuse too! We should drive out of office (preferably into the ocean) ANYONE who supports infant genocide of any kind. Those slimy politicians who use this issue to pander to the uneducated voters just to get elected, or who use the death of a child to further their political careers are the lowest form of life I have ever seen!!

A baby’s development during the first trimester (1): Month 1: As the fertilized egg grows, a water-tight sac forms around it, gradually filling with fluid. This is called the amniotic sac, and it helps cushion the growing embryo. The placenta also develops. The placenta is a round, flat organ that transfers nutrients from the mother to the baby, and transfers wastes from the baby. A primitive face will take form with large dark circles for eyes. The mouth, lower jaw, and throat are developing. Blood cells are taking shape, and circulation will begin. The tiny "heart" tube will beat 65 times a minute by the end of the fourth week. By the end of the first month, your baby is about 1/4 inch long – smaller than a grain of rice!
Month 2: Your baby's facial features continue to develop. Each ear begins as a little fold of skin at the side of the head. Tiny buds that eventually grow into arms and legs are forming. Fingers, toes and eyes are also forming. The neural tube (brain, spinal cord and other neural tissue of the central nervous system) is well formed. The digestive tract and sensory organs begin to develop. Bone starts to replace cartilage. The head is large in proportion to the rest of the baby's body. By the end of the second month, your baby is about 1 inch long and weighs about 1/30 of an ounce. At about 6 weeks, your baby's heart beat can usually be detected. After the 8th week, your baby is called a fetus instead of an embryo.
Month 3: Your baby's arms, hands, fingers, feet, and toes are fully formed. Your baby can open and close its fists and mouth. Fingernails and toenails are beginning to develop and the external ears are formed. The beginnings of teeth are forming. Your baby's reproductive organs also develop, but the baby's gender is difficult to distinguish on ultrasound. By the end of the third month, your baby is fully formed. All the organs and extremities are present and will continue to mature in order to become functional. The circulatory and urinary systems are working and the liver produces bile. At the end of the third month, your baby is about 4 inches long and weighs about 1 ounce. Since your baby's most critical development has taken place, your chance of miscarriage drops considerably after three months.
A baby’s development during the Second trimester (1): Month 4: Your baby's heartbeat may now be audible through an instrument called a doppler. The fingers and toes are well-defined. Eyelids, eyebrows, eyelashes, nails, and hair are formed. Teeth and bones become denser. Your baby can even suck his or her thumb, yawn, stretch, and make faces. The nervous system is starting to function. The reproductive organs and genitalia are now fully developed, and your doctor can see on ultrasound if you are having a boy or a girl. By the end of the fourth month, your baby is about 6 inches long and weighs about 4 ounces.
Month 5: You may begin to feel your baby move, since he or she is developing muscles and exercising them. This first movement is called quickening. Hair begins to grow on baby's head. Your baby's shoulders, back, and temples are covered by a soft fine hair called lanugo. This hair protects your baby and is usually shed at the end of the baby's first week of life. The baby's skin is covered with a whitish coating called vernix caseosa. This "cheesy" substance is thought to protect baby's skin -from the long exposure to the amniotic fluid. This coating is shed just before birth. By the end of the fifth month, your baby is about 10 inches long and weighs from 1/2 to 1 pound.
Month 6: Your baby's skin is reddish in color, wrinkled, and veins are visible through the baby's translucent skin. Baby's finger and toe prints are visible. The eyelids begin to part and the eyes open. Baby responds to sounds by moving or increasing the pulse. You may notice jerking motions if baby hiccups. If born prematurely, your baby may survive after the 23rd week with intensive care. By the end of the sixth month, your baby is about 12 inches long and weighs about 2 pounds.
A baby’s development during the third trimester (1): Month 7: Your baby will continue to mature and develop reserves of body fat. Your baby's hearing is fully developed. He or she changes position frequently and responds to stimuli, including sound, pain, and light. The amniotic fluid begins to diminish. At the end of the seventh month, your baby is about 14 inches long and weighs from 2 to 4 pounds. If born prematurely, your baby would be likely to survive after the seventh month.
Month 8: Your baby will continue to mature and develop reserves of body fat. You may notice that your baby is kicking more. Baby's brain is developing rapidly at this time, and your baby can see and hear. Most internal systems are well developed, but the lungs may still be immature. Your baby is about 18 inches long and weighs as much as 5 pounds.
Month 9: Your baby continues to grow and mature: the lungs are nearly fully developed. Your baby's reflexes are coordinated so he or she can blink, close the eyes, turn the head, grasp firmly, and respond to sounds, light, and touch. Baby is definitely ready to enter the world! You may notice that your baby moves less due to tight space. Your baby's position changes to prepare itself for labor and delivery. The baby drops down in your pelvis. Usually, the baby's head is down toward the birth canal.

Actual Abortion procedures explained even the gory details planned parenthood and liberals won't tell you!
What abortion procedures are used during the first trimester? In most cases, you will have a choice between medical or surgical abortion procedures during the first trimester. Medical abortions are only available up through nine weeks gestation. The types of abortion procedures performed during the first trimester are (2):
a. Methotrexate & Misoprostol (MTX): a medical abortion procedure used up to the first seven weeks of pregnancy. This medication combination is not as commonly used in the U.S. with the availability of mifepristone, which works more effectively for this use.
b. Mifepristone and Misoprostol: a medical abortion procedure used up to the first seven to nine weeks of pregnancy. It can also be referred to as RU-486, the abortion pill, and mifeprex.
c. Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA): a procedure used as early as 3 -12 weeks since the last period. Considered less invasive with only a local anesthesia being used on the cervix.
d. Aspiration: a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate pregnancy up to 16 weeks from the last period. It can also be referred to as suction curettage, dilation and curettage (D & C) or vacuum aspiration.
What do you feel & what happens during a medicinal abortion? (3) For most people, the cramping and bleeding usually starts 1-4 hours after taking the misoprostol. It’s normal to see large blood clots (up to the size of a lemon) or clumps of tissue when this is happening. It’s kind of like having a really heavy, crampy period, and the process is very similar to an early miscarriage. (If you don’t have any bleeding within 24 hours after taking the second medicine, misoprostol, call your nurse or doctor.)
The cramping and bleeding can last for several hours. Most people finish passing the pregnancy tissue in 4-5 hours, but it may take longer. The cramping and bleeding slows down after the pregnancy tissue comes out. You may have cramping on and off for 1 or 2 more days.
For most people, medication abortion feels like having an early miscarriage. You might have: lots of cramping and aches in your belly, very heavy bleeding with large clots (If you don’t have any bleeding within 24 hours after taking the second medicine, misoprostol, call your nurse or doctor.), an upset stomach and vomiting (Your doctor or nurse may give you medicine to help with nausea.), diarrhea, dizziness, tiredness, mild fever (99-100° F) or chills on the day you take the misoprostol (If you have a fever after the day you take the misoprostol pills, call your doctor or health center right away.)
What is a Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA)? Vacuum aspiration usually takes between 10 and 15 minutes. It can be done in a clinic or medical office under local anesthetic. (4):
-Open (dilate) the cervical canal with a small instrument. Dilation reduces the risk of any injury to the cervix during the procedure. Pass a thin tube (cannula) into the cervical canal, and apply suction (vacuum) to gently remove all tissue from the uterus. As the uterine tissue is removed, the uterus will contract. Most women feel cramping during the procedure. The cramps will decrease after the tube is removed. Some women also may have nausea or sweating or feel faint.
-Sometimes a dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure is needed after a vacuum aspiration if all of the tissue has not been removed. D&C uses a sharp surgical instrument to clear (cut or scrap) tissue from the uterus.
What abortion procedures are used during the second trimester? Medication-based abortion procedures are not an option during the second trimester. Therefore only surgical abortion procedures performed during the second trimester are (2):
a. Dilation & Curettage (D & C): a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy up to 16 weeks gestation. It is also referred to as suction curettage or vacuum aspiration.
b. Dilation & Evacuation (D & E): a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy after 16 weeks gestation.
c. Induction Abortion: a rarely performed surgical procedure where salt water, urea, or potassium chloride is injected into the amniotic sac; prostaglandins are inserted into the vagina, and pitocin is injected intravenously.
What is a Dilation & Evacuation (D & E) Abortion? A dilation and evacuation abortion, D&E, is a surgical abortion procedure during which an abortionist first dilates the woman’s cervix and then uses instruments to dismember and extract the baby from the uterus. The D&E abortion procedure is usually performed between thirteen and twenty-four weeks LMP (that is thirteen to twenty-four weeks after the first day of the woman’s last menstrual period). (5)
What abortion procedures are used during the third trimester? Third trimester or late term abortions are not legal in a number of states except in certain medical situations. The time frame referred to as late term is often based on when a baby is considered “viable” (able to survive outside the womb). However, the point of “viability” is a grey area in many medical communities. Most medical communities establish 24 weeks gestation, the later part of the second trimester, as the earliest time of viability. Therefore, the availability of any procedure used in the third trimester is based on the laws of that state. The procedures that can be done in the third trimester include (2):
a. Induction Abortion: a rarely done surgical procedure where salt water, urea, or potassium chloride is injected into the amniotic sac; prostaglandins are inserted into the vagina and pitocin is injected intravenously.
b. Dilation and Extraction: a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy after 21 weeks of gestation. This procedure is also known as D & X, Intact D & X, Intrauterine Cranial Decompression and Partial Birth Abortion.
How is an induction abortion performed (6)? To help ensure the baby will be delivered dead and not alive, the abortionist uses a large needle to inject digoxin or potassium chloride (poison) through the woman’s abdomen or vagina, targeting the baby’s heart, torso, or head. When the digoxin takes effect, the lethal dose causes a fatal cardiac arrest, and the baby’s life will end. (Even if the needle misses the baby, digoxin can still kill the baby when released into the amniotic sack, but will usually take longer to kill the child.)
The abortionist replaces the laminaria and may perform a second ultrasound to ensure that the baby is dead. If the child is still alive, the abortionist administers a second lethal dose of digoxin or potassium chloride. During this visit, the abortionist may administer labor-inducing drugs. The woman goes back to where she is staying while her cervix continues to dilate. The woman will usually wait a period of two to four days for her cervix to dilate enough for her to deliver the dead baby.
The woman returns to the clinic to deliver her dead baby. If she goes into labor before she can make it to the abortion clinic in time, she will deliver her baby at home or in a hotel room. During this time, a woman may be advised to sit on a bathroom toilet until the abortionist arrives. If she can make it to the clinic, she will do so during her most heavy and severe contractions and deliver the dead baby. If the child does not come out whole, the procedure becomes a D&E, or a dilation and evacuation. The abortionist uses clamps and forceps to dismember and remove the baby piece by piece.1
What is a D & X, Intact D & X, Intrauterine Cranial Decompression and Partial Birth Abortion (7)? Two days before the procedure, laminaria is inserted vaginally to dilate the cervix. Your water should break on the third day and you should return to the clinic. The fetus is rotated and forceps are used to grasp and pull the legs, shoulders, and arms through the birth canal.
A small incision is made at the base of the skull to allow a suction catheter inside. The catheter removes the cerebral material (that’s the babies brains, FYI) until the skull collapses. The fetus is then completely removed.
