New Study Finds Preborn Babies May Feel Pain in First TrimesterBy Cassy Fiano

Over the past several decades, medical advances have hit the abortion industry hard. Ultrasounds allowed mothers to see their preborn babies firsthand; increasing knowledge in the field of embryology has given people newfound understanding of the humanity of the preborn.
Learning about fetal pain struck a huge blow to support for violent second-trimester, D&E abortions (which can be learned about in the video below, with former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino).
The more science discovers about preborn children, the less willing people are to support abortion. And doctors and scientists still have so much more to learn.
A breaking new study has found that preborn babies in the first trimester have “adult-like” patterns of nerves. Researchers “combined whole-mount immunostaining, 3DISCO clearing, and light-sheet imaging to start building a 3D cellular map” and found that “the adult-like pattern of skin innervation is established before the end of the first trimester, showing important intra- and inter-individual variations in nerve branches.” They also found evidence for “a differential vascularization of the male and female genital tracts concomitant with sex determination.” The full study can be seen here.
