Fetal development showcased on WebMD

The popular WebMD medical/health site is showcasing the development of the unborn child.

WebMD is "the leading health portal in the United States," according to Wikipedia, and "receives information from accredited individuals and is reviewed by a medical review board consisting of four physicians to ensure accuracy."

A slideshow on the site shows fetal development month by month in color photographs. One caption reads: "If a sperm cell meets and penetrates an egg, it will fertilize it. This is known as conception. At this moment, the genetic make-up is complete, including the sex of the infant." The slideshow repeatedly refers to human embryos/fetuses as "babies."

It is very good to see these facts recognized by respected medical sources outside the pro-life movement. View the slideshow here.
