Think a fetus at just 7 weeks gestation (before some women even know they're pregnant!) is just a "blob of tissue"? That's what many abortion clinic workers would tell women who come in to their clinics to abort babies even much further along than that.

But try telling that to David Raphael, the beautifully formed unborn baby in a photo that has gone mega-viral on Facebook after former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson shared the photo on her page.

Johnson, who is now pro-life, and has over 130,000 followers on her page, wrote: "I wanted to share this beautiful image and story with you. We are indeed created in His image. Thank you to this beautiful mother for courageously sharing her story with all of us."

She then shared the following account from the baby's mother:

I had a miscarriage on Palm Sunday last year. We think he was a boy and named him David Raphael. My only prayer when the doctor told me at 11 weeks that my baby had died a month earlier (at 7 weeks gestation), was that I would have something to bury. The doctor said he would either be too small to find or that his fragile body would be crushed in the miscarriage process and there wouldn't be anything left. On Palm Sunday afternoon he came out. The entire sac was in tact and there he was still floating in the amniotic water. I took a picture so I wouldn't forget that moment and how God answered my prayer. I think it would be an amazing photo to show people contemplating abortion. Even though he was only 7 weeks when he died, you can see his little arms and legs forming. My 4 year old was looking through my phone when I wasn't looking one day and found the picture. He came up to me with it and asked me whose baby it was. Even a child can tell that at 7 weeks, the fetus is a little person.

Since Johnson shared the photo on her page, it has been "liked" almost 500,000 times, and "shared" over 160,000 times!

After some people who support abortion complained to Johnson that the photo was "disgusting," she wrote the following: 

Abortion supporters have been up in arms because of the picture I posted of a 7 week old miscarried baby. They have said it's "gross" and "disgusting" and that no one should have to look at something like that.

Well abortion supporters, here's something you need to know. Inside of every abortion facility across this country, aborted babies are reassembled by a POC technician (products of conception).

So if you don't support people looking at these images, then maybe you shouldn't support abortion. If it's not okay for you to look at, then you should also be concerned for the abortion facility workers who look at this every day.
