Pictures & videos: unborn babies

Below are photos and videos of unborn babies at various stages of development.

The images show that a 24 week old baby is a fully developed human being, yet abortion is still legal up to this point in England.

After this point a baby can be aborted at any point up to birth – 40 weeks old – if it has a "serious" abnormality. The term "serious" is not defined in abortion law, and babies have been aborted for reasons as simple as cleft palate – a birth defect easily corrected with surgery.
