Pro-life groups are pushing pro-life listicles on the Buzzfeed social media web site. Buzzfeed gives pro-life groups an opportunity to expose the pro-life message to people who may not otherwise see it through traditional social media.

Personhood USA has a new one titled, “12 Unborn Animals In The Womb You Have To See To Believe.”

As the group explains: “Yes, fetal sharks are just as scary as they sound. These images are absolutely extraordinary.”

“These images were created for a National Geographic special called In The Womb: Animals by Producer Peter Chinn. He used a combination of ultrasound technology, tiny cameras, and computer design to create these incredible images that replicate what fetal animals look like. This is an incredible window into the womb (or egg as the case may be), laying bare the mysteries of the beginning of life,” the group adds.

Below is their list:

Clump of Cells?

Clump of Cells?

Wait a minute, what? That’s an unborn human being isn’t it? For every other entry in this series, we realized that the animal inside the womb was the same type of thing as the animal outside the womb. Why should it be different for human beings? It would be dehumanizing to use dissociative language like “clump of cells” in this instance.

Unfortunately however, this particular fetal life in the womb is treated as less than human—it isn’t given the full rights of “Personhood” in the United States. And for that reason, this little one can be killed through abortion. Seems unjust doesn’t it? We think so. If you agree, please sign our Ten Million for Life pledge, which declares that all human beings should be recognized as full persons.
