Abortion kills unborn children. More than 120,000 children die every day because of abortion.
At twelve weeks
By the end of the third month all arteries are present including thecoronary vessels of the heart . Blood is circulating through these vessels to all body parts.
The heart beat ranges from 110 to 160 beats per minute. All blood cells are produced by the liver and spleena job soon taken over by the bone marrow. White blood cells, important for immunity are formed in the lymph nodes and thymus.
Vocal chords are complete, the child can and does sometimes cry(silently). The brain is fully formed and the child can feel pain. The fetus may even suck his thumb.
