Okay, so I am going to say this one time & one time only.
I am sick & tired of hearing people say that prolifers only care about people before they’re born.
How do you know someone is prolife? Maybe you see them holding signs outside of an abortion clinic. Maybe you know they run a prolife…
Sure, they’ll drive you crazy with the punching and the mud and the peeing on everything, but did you know that they actually get inside a mother’s head?
Long-time readers of the blog may remember the beautiful story of how mothers and babies share cells throughout pregnancy. In the later trimesters, one out of every thousand cells in the mother’s blood can be from the growing baby, after crossing the placenta and migrating into her bloodstream. Some of those cells remain in her body after delivery, settling and growing and forever making the child a part of the mother. It’s a poetic embrace, a permanent biological link with unknown consequences.
Newer research on this phenomenon found that over half of boys’ mothers tested carried DNA from the Y-chromosome in their brains, showing just how extensively the cells had migrated.
Who knows if there’s biological significance to those lingering remnants of a mother’s creation (with help from the dad, of course)? More research will have to be done to decipher any harm or benefit. For now, we can remind ourselves of this beautiful tale, and just how deep our parental connections are.
Funny cuz Obama would have wanted those babies dead (women’s rights) just a few months prior to those photos being taken. The children are alive due to people like Mitt, who actually value their existence and their humanity BEFORE they are born, unlike Barry. Just thought I’d make that point clear.
“The two cells gradually and gracefully become one. This is the moment of conception, when an individual’s unique set of DNA is created, a human signature that never existed before and will never be repeated.”
