The less human the baby appears, the more abortion advocates can pretend the baby’s life isn’t worth protecting.
Life News reports the findings of an embryologist named Albert W. Liley, who said the nerves and muscles of unborn babies in the sixth and seventh week, “abortable” babies, work together for the first time:
If the area of the lips, the first to become sensitive to touch, is gently stroked, the child responds by bending the upper body to one side and making a quick backward motion with his arms…

By eight and a half weeks the eyelids and the palms of the hands become sensitive to touch. If the eyelid is stroked, the child squints. On the stroking of the palm, the fingers close into a small fist.…
