• Reader’s comment on “A moving story about a murdered baby…and one that was saved”

The comments button is at the bottom right of this post.

Samuel Dennis posted a comment on my earlier post, saying…

” The sight of a fully formed baby was a complete surprise to Williams [the woman who watched her live baby being being tossed into a rubbish bag after a botched abortion]. “I thought it would be a blob thing, but bigger, not a baby,” she said. ”

That anyone could possibly think a baby at 23 weeks would be “a blob thing” shows what disgusting lies these women are told by the authorities.

I helped out at a pro-life stall last year at the Christchurch A&P show, and we were showing life-size models of babies to people. Many were shocked how well developed the 12-week baby was [see the picture below], because of the misinformation you are fed these days. But for someone to think the same about a 23 week one means there has been some serious lying going on.

I too was struck by the comment that Williams made, and I wondered if this was an isolated case. However Samuel’s experience indicates that this is ignorance is probably widespread (without wanting to criticise anyone, do people think that a blob magically becomes a baby just before birth?). State education and health systems are usually pro-abortion so obviously they will try and tell people that an unborn baby is a ‘blob’ or a ‘piece of tissue’, whilst also hiding the visible humanity of the baby*.

One possible exception is Texas, which has the Women’s Right To Know legislation, and I have used the information and pictures from that website extensively. That website does not show the results of abortion: if you want to see that click here (warning: graphic images of babies that have been aborted).

How many people would be anti-abortion if they saw pictures and models of unborn babies?

Do you know of any examples of people thinking that an unborn baby is just a ‘blob’?


*this does not remove personal responsibility, i.e. people cannot entirely blame the state for their ignorance regarding babies and abortion, or any other subject. I am aware that obtaining information is difficult for some people.




  1. OMG this is so inhumane. I remember my first ultrasound of my baby at 10 weeks, my baby Matthew (now) actually was stretching and making motions. This is murder. There are so many people who are looking to adopt a child, and this is happening. I have no further comment, but at 10 weeks there is no blob anymore…its a baby. Anna 🙂

    • Anna: I quite agree, although I would say that a baby is never a ‘blob’. I believe that it is a baby from conception, although it may look like a blob in the very early stages.

  2. You are absolutely right. And I never really thought of that people would call it blob, to me baby looks like a little bean, a seed of life. Anna 🙂

  3. You think that’s inhumane Anna!

    Just think, 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in a miscarriage.

    So every-day this God chap terminates millions of these blobs!

    It’s nothing but senseless & vindictive slaughter and we need to put a stop to it.

    We should protest outside Churches and ask God to stop performing abortions and spare those millions of ‘seeds of life’.

    You tell me when/where the first protest against Gods wholesale murder of babies is Anna, and I’ll be there.

    Bye for now.

  4. Huh?????!!!!!
    Paul, I am a woman with a Master’s Degree in Science. I am neither completely pro-life or pro-choice. I can easily see either side of this issue. However, your post makes no sense what so ever.
    Please, do yourself a favor. Read what you write before you post. Your post really speaks poorly for you.
