I live in Needham, home of the famous Memorial Day Soccer Tournament. To put it mildly, soccer is extremely popular, but soccer among unborn babies is a new high!
This video comes from Venezuela where a professional soccer (i.e. football) team is recruiting young athletes for its soccer academy. In a a nation of soccer fanatics, they’re recruiting them young!
In the video, sensors are placed on the bellies of moms who are 28 weeks pregnant and the movement of the babies is translated by software into action on a virtual soccer pitch. At 28 weeks, unborn babies are active and engaged, but right from conception that are fully human and fully alive. Mainstream ads like this remind us all of what we all instinctively know: all human life is fully human, right from the beginning.
