Awesome….and sad.
This doesn’t square with the bogus medical report that just came out stating that the fetus “probably” doesn’t feel pain.

They don’t feel pain, but they cry?

Check this out! Sure looks like the fetus is crying to me, but of course we can’t be 100% sure…

Science is the ally of the pro-life movement. How can anyone claim that this little baby, who cries like a newborn should be subject to “termination?”
