Miscarried at 19 Weeks, Baby Walter's Life is Changing the Abortion Debate

F2 Photography

Nancy Flanders - published on 03/26/15


Baby Walter

These photos of Walter show the humanity of the preborn child. They prove without a shadow of a doubt that this is a person, not a blob or a bunch of tissue. Which begs the question: Why is it legal to end the life of a preborn human?
“Just because the child within cannot be seen by us does not mean that it is a blob of cells,” writes Lexi. “Walter was perfectly formed and very active in the womb. If he had just a few short more weeks he would have had a fighting chance at life. […] In all our hurt, I am glad that some good can come out of this. I pray that the Lord will continue to use Walter’s photos to impact many.”
