WATCH: Identical Twin Babies Shown on Ultrasound “Fighting” in the Womb

The ultrasound has become one of the most powerful tools against abortion in society today.

Mothers now can see their unborn baby’s tiny features: their hands, nose, eyes and maybe even their smile. These unborn babies’ humanity becomes apparent as their mothers watch them wiggle around, kick, yawn and suck their thumbs as early as 12 weeks of pregnancy.

One viral ultrasound video out of China shows twin girls appearing to fight each other in the womb at just 16 weeks of pregnancy.

The Daily Mail reports the twins’ father, Mr. Tao, 28, of Yinchuan, posted the short video online after he and his wife saw the twins during a prenatal checkup last year.

According to the report:

Mr Tao told Chinese news outlet The Paper that he found it amusing to see his unborn daughters seemingly ‘boxing with each other for a few rounds’.

He filmed the ultrasound footage before uploading it to short-video app Douyin. The video quickly went viral.

Mr Tao said he hadn’t expected his girls ‘to be internet stars before being born’.

During another scan in January, he said they saw the girls hugging.

“We were so touched. The babies were so small and they knew how to look after each other. I believe they will live with each other in harmony when they grow up,” he said.

The girls shared the amniotic sac and placenta, a rare condition that posed a risk to both girls’ lives, according to the report. However, both girls survived. They were born on April 8, eight weeks prematurely, the report states.

It was clear to their parents that by just 16 weeks of pregnancy, their unborn daughters already were unique, valuable human beings. They already were building relationships and personalities.

Yet at 16 weeks, abortions are legal for any reason anywhere in the United States and China. The U.S. Supreme Court has forbidden states from banning abortions prior to viability, despite growing evidence that unborn babies are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception.

Though, for now, unborn babies are not legally protected, their lives are being saved in greater numbers as abortion rates drop. Abortion activists cannot hide the truth of an unborn baby waving on an ultrasound or the prenatal surgeries that are helping unborn babies with spina bifida. These amazing scientific advancements demonstrate that unborn babies are valuable and worthy of protection.
