Ideas worth sharing (Conception to birth)

As it has been a really busy week, this blog will be a short one! Between the three clinics, we have seen a lot of women. Many of them are needing our prayers, so please storm heaven! We are all finding the work pretty intense this week, but I for one have found comfort in the following passage from Joshua 1:9.

I just wanted to draw your attention to a video I came across a few years ago and was reminded of today. It depicts the development of the baby from conception to birth. There are many videos out there, but I think this one is particularly amazing. (From 2:01 - 6:00 minutes)

When it comes to talking about pro-life issues, there are many different ways we can approach a situation. However, over the past few weeks I have become convinced that our key approach should be one of love, truth and compassion. Looking towards the development of the baby can often shed a positive light on the baby. A 20 day old foetus may not look like what we recognise as a 'baby', but that 20 day old foetus looks exactly how a human should 20 days after conception. Just as we look different now than the day we were born. A baby looks like a baby ... and a toddler, a toddler ... and a foetus, a foetus! At the moment of conception, a new human being exists that has never existed before. A new member of the human family. 

Lets work to protect the most vulnerable members of our family. The unborn.

God bless you all, and good night! Vx.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
St Michael the Archangel, pray for us.
