Unborn Twins Interact in the Womb at 14 weeks Into Pregnancy

Padova, Italy -- An Italian researcher is gaining more attention into his research published last October on twins and the relationships they develop -- starting in the womb.

One thing’s for sure — any politician who voted for Federally funded abortions is NOT a good person.

Very interesting, but as a mother of 26 year old identical twins, this does not surpise me at all.

...

The Italian research team filmed video footage of twins at both 14 and 18 weeks along using a four-dimensional ultrasound, according to their report. The 14-week old twins touched each other head to head, arm to head, and head to arm. At the 18th week, they made more contact and, as the team wrote, began “spending up to 30 percent of their time reaching out and stroking their co-twin.”

Kinematic analyses described the movements as not reflexes but planned movements and were eventually very purposeful contacts to towards each others’ eye and mouth regions and that they took care when touching delicate parts of each other’s bodies. They were seen “caressing” the back of the sibling.

....

Human touch already started in the womb.

Incredible!

God is playing the trump card in the human tragedy that is abortion, via high resolution medical imaging.

What sane, compassionate human being can support the tortuous death of innocents in the womb after seeing this, or the famous Priests for Life/National Geographic video?

Hey wait, why are talking about babies right now instead of traveling in time? I'm gonna catch the next time portal and go back and give Roe a good swift kick in the head!

Nothing unusual about this. Happens with twins and triplets. We’ve seen it many times.

Even the Bible, speaking of Jacob and Esau, states “And the children struggled together within her”.

Loved that.

No wonder they grow up with their own special language and sense of closeness.

Beautiful, eh?

I think this kind of thing shows us the most natural state of human love.

the most natural state of human love . . .


Before the fall.

Perhaps we could say . . . one of the most God-like expressions of human love.

Thx for your kind msg.

As a twin, I have no recollection of time in the womb. However, memories from the age of 5 are still vivid.

PS... I’m the better lookin’ one. Don’t believe what Don has to say on this issue. :^)

Actually we are fraternal twins vs. identical but some would argue that point. Especially those who still call me
Don.

Don’t recall a special language as you propose, but we have on occasion in our youth thought the same thoughts without any verbal exchange.

That is a much better way to describe it. The most God-like.

I like it.

NAARAL gives this research an F.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
