Please join national pro-life groups in tracing the development of the unborn child. “Baby Chris” has now reached 16 weeks of life since fertilization.
One of the striking facts of development at this age is that if the baby is poked with a needle, s/he will release stress hormones. Babies, of course, cannot say “Ouch!” when something hurts. But what the voice can’t express, the body expresses in other ways, including hormones.
When we know babies can feel things, this creates yet another level of bonding with them, in the common human experiences we all have.
Let’s follow the development of the child at BabyChris.org, where you will find more facts, stunning photos and video, and prayer resources.
