Week 18: By this time, movement, breathing activity, and heart rate start to follow circadian rhythms. Ultrasounds can start to detect a distinct movement in the baby’s voice box (also called larynx), which is similar to motions made during speaking.
At just 18 weeks, children in the womb are very much developed human beings. Abortion proponents will say that at 20 weeks and before, it is “junk science” that these human beings can feel pain. This is wrong. It is why we try to pass #prolife legislation such as The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (a 20-week abortion ban).
Please share with your friends to help inform the public just how beautiful life is (especially pregnant friends who would like to know about the development of their baby!).
