When is a “Baby” a “Baby?”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Princess Kate Middleton is pregnant!   Writers and celebrities have written about her severe morning sickness, speculated on the chances of her having twins, and congratulated the young royal couple.

What’s interesting to me is that so far I haven’t heard anyone congratulate Prince William and Princess Kate on their “blob of tissue” or “clump of cells” or “fetus;” no, everyone seems to acknowledge that they are expecting a baby, even though Kate is less than 12 weeks pregnant.  This is odd, because many of these people are liberal reporters and celebrities who refuse to acknowledge that life begins at conception and consequently promote abortion rights.

Over at LifeNews.com, Steven Ertelt points this out

Abortion activists are reluctant to recognize the humanity of the unborn child, but the liberal news web site Gawker did just that today. “CONFIRMED: THERE IS A HUMAN BEING GROWING INSIDE KATE MIDDLETON #baby #baby #baby” it tweeted.

The conservative twitter watchdog Twitchy caught the tweet and applauded Gawker for finally getting something right.

It said: “For once, Gawker is right. A zygote conceived from human sperm and eggs is a human being, not merely a “blob” or a “bunch of cells” or “potential human life.” At this stage of pregnancy, the baby’s heart has begun to beat and, by six weeks, brainwaves will be present.”

As with any pregnancy, we should take this opportunity to celebrate the gift of life, remind people that life begins at conception, and make sure every child is welcomed.  And let’s all remember to pray for Princess Kate as she and Prince William embark on this new and exciting journey!

    Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit inside his mothers womb ” The baby shook ” as John the Baptist mother passed by.

    Jeremiah wrote ” I was called from my mothers womb ”

    I guess that settles it.

    Hey Bristol!!! Can I say how incredibly touched I am that a young woman such as yourself will stand here on a public platform and speak up for our little peanuts. I am a mommy to two little peanuts (Maddy -3 and Noah -1) and my heart aches to think that the life of such precious chldren are taken away daily. I believe that in their hearts many many many people are FOR LIFE, but are too afraid to stand up and say so. The popular vote today focuses on oneself, full of our own individual wants, needs and pleasures, and Rights! But what about the rights of our precious children? Although I’m sure it must be completely terrifying for a young mom that was not planning to become pregnant, we must all stand up and be voices for our little babies!!!There are way too many desperate couples just dying for the chance to become parents for us to sit here and as a society say “Yes it is okay, we can take away our child’s life if we don’t want or are not prepared to take care of them”. So many people are ready to take care of their children! God Bless you for using your voice in such an amazing way!!! Please, please, please share this PRO-LIFE CHALLENGE we came up with. Let us all come together and have our voices heard, and shock the world that we LOVE ALL LIFE! Would love your voice to help share this! http://www.facebook.com/childrenwomenlife. God Bless and thanks again for all that you do!!!
