The Big Bang Theory, arguably TV’s most popular comedy today, captured an adorable, life-affirming moment in its latest episode when three of the characters listened to an unborn baby’s heartbeat together.

The April 7 episode showed expecting parents Howard and Bernadette sitting together on the sofa with Howard’s best friend Raj. Howard moves a special microphone over his wife’s stomach that allows them to hear the baby’s heart beating. The three friends sit in awe as they listen to the unborn baby’s heart thump through the speaker.

“Isn’t that the best?” Bernadette says.

“You guys made a person!” Raj adds, smiling in awe.



Howard snuggles close to his wife and says, “We did.”

It is a special moment for several reasons. In a past season of the show, Bernadette said she did not want to have children, because she wanted to pursue her career. In real life, women sometimes have abortions because they say a baby would get in the way of their career. Bernadette could easily have taken that route; but her mind appears to be changed. She is excited to be a mother and in awe of her unborn child.

Even more so, the moment is heartwarming because the characters acknowledge that the unborn baby is a valuable human being, a “person.” Hollywood and the mainstream media don’t often do that. They typically bow to the pro-abortion rhetoric that avoids any language recognizing unborn babies for who they are.

This past winter, abortion activists even made a fuss over a Super Bowl commercial for Doritos that showed an ultrasound of an unborn baby. The radical abortion group NARAL claimed the ad “humanized fetuses.” Later, NARAL was called out for its ridiculous criticism of the commercial.

Maybe that’s why the new Big Bang Theory episode has received little attention from abortion activists. As technology advances and the access to it expands, more people are realizing the truth that unborn babies are valuable people, too.
