So I've noticed that a very famous poem about abortion has recently gone "viral" on Deviantart....And it is the most medically inaccurate piece of "literature" I have ever seen. So, I decided to debunk it using facts I learnt during my two years of Child Development and three years of Biology.
Mommy I am only 8 inches long but I have all my organs.
WRONG. All the organs are present after the 12th week. Over 60% of them happen during the first nine weeks and overall above 88% of abortions happen during the first 12 weeks. And it is not eight inches, try the size of a poppy seed.
I love the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your heart beat is my favorite lullaby.
One month old embryos DON'T have ears, arms or legs. They have a tail at that point for crying out loud! It has been scientifically proven that fetuses can not hear until past the 16th week gestation.
Mommy today I learned how to suck my thumb.
