John Kerry supports late-term abortion.
Facts about abortion:
5 weeks - The embryo's tiny heart has begun beating. The neural tube enlarges into three parts, soon to become a very complex brain.
7 weeks - Facial features are visible, including a mouth and tongue. The eyes have a retina and lens. The major muscle system is developed, and the
unborn child practices moving (MOVING). The child has its own blood type, distinct from the mother's. These blood cells are produced by the liver now
instead of the yolk sac (means it is functioning).
8 weeks - The tiny person is protected by the amnionic sac, filled with fluid. Inside, the child swims and moves gracefully. The arms and legs have
lengthened, and fingers can be seen. The toes will develop in the next few days. Brain waves can be measured.
10 weeks - The heart is almost completely developed and very much resembles that of a newborn baby. An opening the atrium of the heart and the
presence of a bypass valve divert much of the blood away from the lungs, as the child's blood is oxygenated through the placenta. Twenty tiny baby
teeth are forming in the gums.
12 weeks - Vocal chords are complete, and the child can and does sometimes cry (silently). The brain is fully formed, and the child can feel pain. The
fetus may even suck his thumb. The eyelids now cover the eyes, and will remain shut until the seventh month to protect the delicate optical nerve
All of this within the time frame of legal standard abortion. It swims, cries, moves that is not the criteria for a disorganized clump of cells.
-John Kerry is also a war criminal.
