. . . as do advances in science.
Researchers at the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences at the University of Washington and Pacific Lutheran University report that unborn babies begin absorbing languages while still in the womb and, by the last ten weeks of pregnancy, can differentiate their respective mothers’ languages from others.
Many of the unborn babies allegedly butchered in Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic were older than the babies in the University of Washington study. In fact, evidence adduced during the Gosnell trial shows that some of the slaughtered babies had been born alive after unsuccessful abortion attempts.
As an Illinois state legislator, Barack Obama voted against extending legal protections to such babies. With President Obama being a man who proclaims his respect for science, if this study had been available back then, would the findings have affected his vote?
