Ways Lives Are Saved: Fetal Models Help Women Choose Life

For You From The Word

Blessed are your eyes because they see. (Matthew 13:16, NIV)

For You To Think About

fetal modelRebecca scanned the booths along the walkway at the county fair. One caught her eye. She paused and took a closer look.

The display showed models of unborn babies of varying sizes.

The volunteers at the booth spoke to Rebecca and gave her additional information. They let her touch and hold the fetal models. They didn’t know the truth: Rebecca had an abortion scheduled in a few days.

But thanks to the display of fetal models and the additional information provided, Rebecca cancelled her appointment.

A fetal model is a scientifically-accurate replica of an unborn baby. Models are available in different stages of development – first trimester stages up to 12, 20, 26, and even 30 weeks of gestational life. The model babies are a powerful tool in helping women to choose life because they show that a baby is a human being, not a blob of tissue.

The baby’s weight and the feeling of the skin are so life-like that people want to cuddle and protect them. For many, seeing – and touching – is believing.

Just ask Rebecca. She saw and held a fetal model and chose life. Today, her son is in middle school.

For You To Pray

Gracious Father,
Thank you for the many ways you save babies’ lives. Allow more pregnant women see fetal models during the all-important decision-making process.  Use these models to help women choose life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
