Womb with a view: Fetuses can recognize faces while still inside mom

Doyle Rice of USA Today informs us that this new research is the first to show that it is possible to explore sight and cognition in babies inside their mother’s womb. According to a new peer reviewed study, a “collection of cells” a “potential person” a “fetus” has cognitive and visual ability at 34 weeks. It’s going to be interesting to see how pro-aborts, especially those who call themselves Progressive Christians, will handle this very credible scientific research. We hope and pray that this unbiased study will help those who are all for a women’s right to choose to abort what they deem a “potential person” will come to their senses.

Now to Doyle Rice’s story:

We know babies love looking at the faces of their mom or dad. Now, for the first time, researchers have discovered that this preference develops in the womb several weeks before birth, according to a study published Thursday.

By projecting light through the uterine wall of pregnant mothers, British scientists found that 34-week-old fetuses will turn their heads to look at face-like images.

“We have shown the fetus can distinguish between different shapes, preferring to track face-like over non-face-like shapes,” said psychologist Vincent Reid of Lancaster University in the United Kingdom, a co-author of the study. “This preference has been recognized in babies for many decades, but until now exploring fetal vision has not been attempted.”
