is prenatal ultrasound?
Prenatal ultrasound uses sound waves to create a picture of your fetus (baby) on a special TV screen. This picture is called a sonogram. It gives your clinician information about the structure, size and movement of your fetus as well as the number of fetuses and the location of the placenta. Certain pictures are printed onto film and checked by a specialist. It is recommended that all pregnant women be offered an ultrasound in their 18th week of pregnancy as a part of routine prenatal care.
prenatal ultrasound safe?
Prenatal ultrasound has been used for more than 25 years. There does not appear to be any danger for either the mother or fetus from ultrasound. No radiation is used.
PARAMETERS (30 minute observation period): reactive NST fetal breathing movement: breathing period at least 60 seconds fetal body movement > 3 discrete movements of limbs/trunk fetal tone: upper and lower limbs usually flexed with head on chest > 1 episode of extension with return to flexion amniotic fluid volume: largest pocket > 1 cm in vertical diameter without containing loops of cord score: 2 points if normal; 0 points for abnormal results: 8-10 = maximal score 0-4 = severe fetal compromise; delivery indicated 33% sensitivity; 17% positive predictive value

does the fetus begin to move?
There is no doubt that the fetus can be seen moving during the eighth week menstrual age. Michael Applebaum, MD, JD, FCLM

The growth pattern described here is recognized medical information and is fully documented by scientific research.
Day 20: Foundations of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system are already established.
Day 21: The heart begins to beat.
Day 28: The backbone and muscles are forming. Arms, legs, eyes and ears have begun to show.
Day 30: The heart is pumping increasing quantities of blood through the circulatory system.
Day 35: Five fingers can be discerned in the hand. The eyes darken as pigment is produced.
Day 40: Brain waves can be detected and recorded.
Day 42: The liver is now taking over the production of blood cells and the brain begins to control movement of muscles and organs.
Week 7: The embryo begins to move spontaneously. The jaw forms, including teeth buds in the gums.
Week 8: At a little more than an inch long, the developing life is now called a fetus-- Latin for young one or offspring. Everything is now present that will be found in a fully developed adult. The stomach produces digestive juices and the kidneys have begun to function. The fetus' body responds to touch, although the mother will not be able to feel movement until the fourth or fifth month.
Week 9: The fetus can squint, swallow, and wrinkle its forehead.
Week 11: The fetus is about two inches long. Urination occurs.
Week 12: The fetus now sleeps, awakens and exercises its muscles energetically-- turning its head, curling its toes, and opening and closing its mouth. The palm, when stroked, will make a tight fist.
Week 13: By now, you can tell if it's a boy or a girl.
Month 5: The ears are functioning and there is evidence that the fetus hears quite a bit-- such as the mother's voice and heartbeat, as well as external noises.
Month 6: If the baby were born in this month and given the proper care, he or she would survive.

Parable: Someone gave our family a brand new luxury car with every accessory listed in the owner's manual. It was equipped with a V/8 engine and wasn't exactly an economy car. And, it was so long, we can't get the garage door down. Since it was such a gas guzzler and we had no place to store it, we decided our family couldn't afford this luxury car. Therefore, I parked it at the edge of a cliff, put it in neutral, and pushed it onto the rocks, 100 feet below.
Pretty stupid of me, right?
Why didn't I advertise it on eBay as free to the first licensed driver?

Let's say you have the right to choose. Let's even say you have the right to control your own body. But, Why kill your own flesh and blood?

Of course, it takes more intestinal fortitude to adopt than to abort. When you abort, you just have to sign a form, make arrangements to pay the bill, and surrender yourself to the anesthetic.
When you surrender a child for adoption you have to be willing to do the following:
Take good care of yourself and the baby during the first 9 months.
Make sure you have the full agreement of all involved family members.
Covenant with yourself and all family members that this adoption will be totally anonymous. After all, if you were considering aborting your baby, you had to be willing to never see or touch the baby or even know the sex. Instead of flushing your baby down the four-inch pipe, you will be surrendering him/her to two pairs of loving arms.

Not all women who have abortions are affected in the same way. Some seem to have no regrets about choosing abortion and have no apparent signs of emotional or physical aftereffects. Other women may feel some remorse or regret which they try to shut down. After all, they chose that legal, safe procedure, so why should they feel so badly? Some clues that a woman might have some post-abortion remorse or regret are:
Struggling to turn off feelings and memories connected to the abortion
When abortion is mentioned in public, having a physical reaction, such as tightening stomach muscles, clenching jaw, or holding breath
Not wanting to talk about it, even in the most abstract way
Difficulty with intimacy
Uncomfortable around pregnant women or babies
Depressed, sick or accident-prone at certain times of the year that coincide with the anniversary date of the abortion or the month in which the baby would have been born.

STATE OF ADOPTION IN AMERICA
From THE PASTOR'S WEEKLY BRIEFING, Vol. 11, No. 36 -- September 5, 2003
"Adopted children are more likely to have parents who are older, married, wealthier and more educated than children raised by biological parents," according to a special report released last month [August, 2003] by the U.S. Census Bureau. The report, "Adopted Children and Stepchildren: 2000" (www.census.gov/prod/2003pubs/censr-6.pdf), was based on data from the long form of the 2000 Census, which, for the first time, asked households to identify children in the home as adopted, natural-born or stepchildren.
The study revealed that 2.1 million adopted children and 4.4 million stepchildren lived in US homes in 2000. Together, these children represented approximately eight percent of the 84 million children in US households in 2000. Of the adopted children living at home, 1.6 million were under 18.
Other highlights of the report:
Only 13 percent of adopted children were born outside the US
International adoptions increased from 7,000 in 1990 to nearly 18,000 in 2000.
Nearly half (48 percent) of the foreign-born adopted children were born in Asia, with 57,000 (22 percent) coming from Korea alone.
percent of adopted children were born in Latin America and 16 percent in Europe.
Of households with an adopted child, 76 percent list their race as white, 15 percent African American, and Asians and other races make up the difference.
It is significant that the Census is even asking about adoption. "Clearly, adoption is alive and well in America today," said Thomas Atwood, president of the National Council for Adoption. "No adopted child should feel alone."
