Heartbeats For Life @ St Peter n Paul (31 Aug 2013)

Heartbeats for Life represents the people who support the Prolife movement. We believe that Life begins at conception and should be protected from that very moment until death. For a developing embryo, a fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as 3 weeks after conception. The reality is life has already begun even before a heartbeat has been detected and undeniably so when one can see a heartbeat in an ultrasound scan. The embryo is indeed alive and a developing person just like you and me. With every heartbeat, life grows and nothing should prematurely destroy and end life. These 2 videos illustrate the beating heart of an early embryo. Video 1 Video 2
