The pro-abortion mainstream media was forced to admit that babies in the womb are human, that they have senses, and can express emotion. This is another blow to the anti-life left that is attempting to push abortion up to birth on the national and statewide level to promote the cause of pro-abortion policies. But now, some of the biggest names in leftist media are eating their words.
CBS News, the Guardian, and the Today Show published/aired a story on Thursday detailing a scientific study that produced the “first direct evidence that babies react differently to various smells and tastes before they are born.”
“Fetuses are big fans of carrots but not leafy green vegetables — and show it in their faces, scientists said in a new study published Thursday,” CBS News reported. “A team of scientists studied 4D ultrasound scans of 100 pregnant women and discovered that babies exposed to carrot flavors showed ‘laughter-face’ responses. Those exposed to kale flavors, in contrast, showed more ‘cry-face’ responses.”
The stories include pictures from the study of unborn babies making facial expressions, reportedly in reaction to different foods. One photo in the CBS News story has a subheading that states: “Fetus is seen apparently smiling after mother eats carrots. FM6 is described by researchers as ‘cheek raiser’ and FM12 as ‘lip-corner puller.”‘
The study was published in the journal Psychological Science, and includes scientists from Durham’s Fetal and Neonatal Research Lab and Aston University in Birmingham, central England. A team from the National Centre for Scientific Research in Burgundy, France, also assisted.
The Guardian titled its story, “Taste of kale makes unborn babies grimace, finds research,” also opting to use the term “babies.”
