TRANSCRIPT

It's sometimes said that religion needs to catch up with science. But in this case, maybe it's science that has some catching up to do.

Martina Moyski talks about a recent scientific study confirming lifelong learning begins at conception — contrary to abortionist propaganda. 

Recent studies are confirming what many parents have long believed: Life and learning begin at conception.

A recent study from the University of Virginia found a child's propensity for sadness, laughter, fear and soothability are already built into a newborn baby's brain.

Pro-life advocates note the study verifies the uniqueness and value of unborn babies — irreplaceable human beings.

Pro-life priest Fr. John Kalchik: "It's funny that empirical studies are now showing that a child within a mother's womb has feelings and reacts to noise and stimulus and can feel pain."

Other studies are also proving a lot of learning happens in the womb.

Unborn babies are learning to hear — music and especially a mother's voice.

They also practice breathing, opening and closing their eyes and smiling.

Fr. Kalchik: "A child is far from a lump of cells in a mother's body."

Since the first century, the Catholic Church has affirmed the preciousness of human life.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: "Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception ... This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable."

Recently, Dr. Kathi Aultman from Gainesville, Florida — who performed abortions even while pregnant herself — became pro-life.

After she gave birth, she realized the unborn children she was aborting were children just like her own.
