The Guardian Shares False Photos Of A 10-Week Pregnancy To Desensitize People To Abortion—This Is What Life In The Womb Actually Looks Like

The whole country erupted earlier this year when the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade was overturned. Since then, the mainstream media has been in a frenzy to convince women that abortion is a necessary pillar of healthcare (it's not). The Guardian recently shared photos of a 10-week pregnancy in an attempt to desensitize people to abortion, but it turns out the pictures were a completely false representation of what life looks like in the womb.

Women have been programmed to believe that abortion is a women's rights issue and a necessary pillar of healthcare, but more and more people are waking up to the fact that abortion is nothing more than the intentional killing of an innocent human life in the womb. Non-profit organizations like Live Action are working hard to spread the truth about abortion as well as the truth about how incredible life is in the womb. They have responded to The Guardian's latest post about abortion, which claims that a 10-week pregnancy is nothing more than tissue in the uterus. Their photos are an entire false representation of preborn life.

The Guardian Shares False Photos Of A 10-Week Pregnancy To Desensitize People To Abortion—This Is What Life In The Womb Actually Looks Like

The Guardian posted an article titled "What a pregnancy actually looks like before 10 weeks—in pictures," showing pictures of random tissue gathered in a Petri dish that doesn't have any shape or resemblance to a human baby. The article begins by reminding readers that abortion has been banned or severely restricted in 14 states across the US. It then goes on to say that MYA Network, a group of clinicians and activists, shared images of a 10-week pregnancy along with quotes from Dr. Joan Fleischman from the MYA Network.

“They are stunned by what it actually looks like,” Dr. Fleischman says. “That’s when I realized how much the imagery on the internet and on placards – showing human-like qualities at this early stage of development – has really permeated the culture. People almost don’t believe this is what comes out.”

The Instagram account called @feminist, which has 6.5 million followers, shared the photos from The Guardian as well as another quote from Dr. Michele Gomez: “This is not something that’s scary, or dangerous, or violent. It’s just a picture of something that’s in your body.”

Nothing about the photos looks like a baby. In fact, it really does look like clumps of tissue or a transparent film. And that's exactly what they want you to think is a preborn baby. The point of showing these photos is to claim that all those pro-life people who want to protect babies in the womb are just crazy conspiracy theorists who have no idea that an abortion just gets rid of a few clumps of cells. However, Live Action debunked the photos and showed what life in the womb actually looks like at six, seven, eight, and ten weeks old.

The photos of real life in the womb shows a little tiny baby that may not look exactly like us yet, but you can clearly see the development of the spinal cord, head, eyes, hands, feet, and even ears. There's no comparison to the fake photos that The Guardian shared. Where are the fact checkers now?

Regardless of whether The Guardian supports women's access to abortion, the information they shared is completely wrong. At best, the pictures they posted were merely tissue that is found inside the uterus surrounding the baby. Why lie about what pregnancy actually looks like? Why release fabricated photos of human babies in the womb?

Even stranger is the fact that in 2009, The Guardian posted an article called "The story of life" in which real photos of human life in the womb were shared from the 1960s, and you could clearly see the head, arms, eyes, legs, and torso of the unborn child. So what changed? Science or The Guardian's bias?

The mainstream media continues to get away with spreading misinformation like this because there's no consequence for the publications that lean left and promote progressive values. Even if a publication is proudly pro-choice, that's no reason to intentionally lie to readers and present them with false information just to further your political agenda.
