Parents in England have posted a beautiful photo of their daughter, born prematurely at 23 weeks, with the hopes that it will demonstrate the humanity of unborn babies who can be legally killed in abortions in the U.K.

bella2Baby Bella born at 23 weeks now her mother wants abortion laws changed in the United Kingdom to stop allowing late-term abortions. In some cases in Britain, abortions are legal up to birth.

Bella Davison, who was born at just 23 weeks, was born just a week before the 24 week abortion limit and weighed just over 1lb. Now at 11 weeks of age, she has quadrupled in size and is doing well.

And her amazing journey, that should be taking place inside the womb as her due date is not until November 12, has prompted her mum Vicky Jackson to call for the abortion limit to be lowered.

Here’s more on little Bella:

Vicky said: “I think the abortion limit should be significantly lowered to 10 weeks unless there is a medical reason as to why it’s later.

“Bella is living proof that babies can survive at 23 weeks old. Perhaps 10 years ago it was completely different because there was not the medical advances that there are now to keep such premature babies alive, but things have moved on.

“I know people whose babies were born at 23 weeks and their children are now going to school, so it shows that in this day and age babies can survive.”

Bella’s plight has attracted followers from around the world, after her mum started a blog about her daughter’s brave fight for life.

Vicky’s regular Facebook posts about her Beautiful Bella and life on the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary was started initially to give family and friends daily updates on her daughter’s condition as her life hung in the balance.

But they have gathered more and more followers, with messages of support coming from as far away as Texas, America.
