Live Action has some statistics from Planned Parenthood’s 2008 annual report:
For every adoption referral from Planned Parenthood, they committed 134 human abortions.
The full numbers for 2008 were:
324,008 Abortions of Preborn Humans
2,405 Adoption Referrals (Planned Parenthood does not do adoptions themselves)
That’s a lot of products of conception, or blobs of protoplasm, or whatever they call all those random cells that magically become a human being at the moment of birth.
Amazingly, Daniel J. Levitin has documented that even before the miraculous metamorphosis, there is an uncanny ability to enjoy music and even remember specific pieces.
Inside the womb, surrounded by amniotic fluid, the fetus hears sounds. It hears the heartbeat of its mother, at times speeding up, at other times slowing down. And the fetus hears music, as was recently discovered by Alexandra Lamont of Keele University in the UK. She found that, a year after they are born, children recognize and prefer the music they were exposed to in the womb.
Lamont’s results are important because they show that the prenatal and newborn brain are able to store memories and retrieve them over long periods of time. More practically, the results indicate that the environment—even when mediated by amniotic fluid and by the womb—can affect a child’s development and preferences. So the seeds of musical preference are sown in the womb.
