Video: 9 Months in the Womb in 4 Incredible Minutes

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 05/18/15

Fetal development is an astounding process

The development of human life in the womb is truly astonishing and this video capture the miraculous nature of it. A great deal about us — such as our height, eye color, skin tone, etc. — is determined at the moment of fertilization. The daily, weekly, and monthly development of the zygote, embryo, and fetus is demonstrated here, right up until the moment of birth. It's a good reminder of why we must proclaim the right to life for every human being from the first moment of existence.
