Trending FB meme showing faked model of "12 week fetus". Please help counter!

There is a trending FB photo showing a faked model of what is said to be a 12 week old fetus cradled in a human hand.

It is a perfectly formed little miniaturized baby and is being spread by those who want to promote an Anti-Choice agenda.

Here is an actual photo of a 12 week fetus.


Here is another:


As you can see, it does not exactly look like the fake model:

1. Why no, it certainly does not.

Sick and tired of these lying hypocrites.

Don't want one, don't have one but butt out of my and everyone else's business.

4. Yep

it shouldn't matter what the fetus looks like. So, they should honestly show what the fetus looks like and let the woman decide based on truth.

8. Yes, I agree.

The accuracy of the model is only relevant because 1) They are being dishonest and 2) They are springing an emotional response to sidestep the issues of right to choose and liberty to control one's own body and to plan one's own life trajectory.

7. How about if they have to resort to lies to argue their point then they've basically lost

all credibility, it's time to STFU and take their own advice and humble themselves before the altar of their Xian god.

Thou shalt not bear false witness and all that stuff.

17. Not yet close to the photo images, but more realistic than the

sculpt in the OP. My humble opinion.

13. We had a 28-week preemie and he didn't look that good!

Preemie's look a mess, believe me.

Their color is all fucked up, their skin as a mess. They have tubes stuck all up in their bodies and nose... and they face a long climb and many dangers.

It is just out and out dishonest to show this fake-ass little pink mini-baby and try to present that as "murder" (which is the whole fucked up point) so they can take away a woman's right to choice.

15. That pic is not the pic of a 21 week old preemie either.

That is a pic of her when she went home and was 7 lbs.

Preemies don't have fat on their bodies like that. Also, if it was 21 weeks, it would have tubes in its nose, IV's in its feet, etc. Plus a breathing monitor, Blood oxygen monitor, etc.

Searched and found an actual pic of "Little Frieda" and even HERE, I doubt she is just born at 21 weeks, but WAY closer than the photo in that article.

(I would post the pics, but they're a bit graphic)

Edited to add info about 12 week fetus: It is just over 2 inches long and weighs about half an ounce

19. Thank you for the links.

2 inches and half an ounce doesn't look too much like that fake-ass propaganda model, does it?

20. Those pictures look closer to 7 to 8 week fetuses.

Not that the model resembles a 12 week fetus. It looks more like a miniature newborn.

Here's probably a good pic of a 12 week fetus.

22. thank you for using a credible website

I did a google image search and there seemed to be quite a discrepancy in what a 12 week old fetus looks like. Not sure you can trust many of them.

24. Yes, I noticed there is a LOT of messing around with the images on google search.

It is VERY CLEAR that there is an organized effort aimed at fudging the issue by blitzing the internet with images of fetuses that appear older than they truly are.

It is clear that the religious nuts that want to take away free choice have been busy posting photos of 12 week old fetuses that are actually 16 week, etc. etc.

23. My ~12 week ultrasounds of my fetuses looked closer to the pic I posted.

The pics you posted, maybe 8-10 weeks. I don't think 12 weeks.

Maybe I'll get around to posting my 12 week pics tomorrow sometime.

and is probably not very accurate. It looks closer to my ultrasound pics at 10 weeks.

27. It is a highly accurate drawing on a specialized website for human development.

Why on earth would you think that you can refute its accuracy?

Here is an actual ultrasound from week 11:

The drawing was 11 + 3 days. To me, the lack of cranial development is very clear and distinct.

28. Even If ...

Even If the fetus were a person, how many people would permit an actual person (homeless?) who had entered because the door was carelessly left open, to remain in their house, administer psycho-active drugs to the hosts, and perform extensive remodelling of the premises?
Lete every man who would not throw that bum out in the cold, sign up to forbid abortions. Let the rest depart, like those who brought an adulteress to Jesus to be stoned.
