Preborn babies: Not just clots and tissue

12 Weeks In Utero   (Public Domain)
If the average picture is worth a thousand words, then Mindy Danison's photos of her miscarried babies speak volumes.

Mothers with miscarriages are often told that their preborn babies are nothing but “clots and tissue.”  They are not encouraged to deliver these babies, and are certainly not
encouraged to view, hold or photograph them.

So when Danison went ahead and treated her two miscarried babies as beloved children, the world was astonished.  This was even more the case when she posted their tiny images on Facebook.

These Facebook photos clearly show the human features of Danison’s seven- and eight-week-old embryos.  “During this point in pregnancy, the baby has a beating heart, forming hands and feet, and a little developing face.”
Danison feels that the photos of her miscarried son and daughter have inspired parents to view their preborn children as people.  She adds:  I have had a lot of people message me and tell me that their story has inspired them to not abort their child.
