And Walter at 19 Weeks
Out of the many comments expressing their condolences, some have stated that the photos—which continue to be shared to this day—helped change their mind about abortion.This is the reason that Planned Parenthood sells the dismembered parts: they are perfect, human parts, which were part of a whole, living human until s/he was killed.
“I am so shocked at my ignorance as to the development of a baby,” one commenter named Barbara wrote. “I will no longer look on as an observer. I will become an active informational type of person and share this as an example of life, the life of a baby—a real baby.”
“[M]y views on abortion have completely changed,” another named Jordan wrote. “How naive have I been?!”
Some women stated that seeing Walter’s photographs saved their own child’s life.
“Just came across Walter’s pictures. … I am pregnant and been in such a bad place this week. Did my first scan last week and he’s a boy, too. But this week I started praying for a miscarriage or decide to terminate since his father has shirked all responsibility,” one mother wrote. “I asked God to gimme a sign today that we will be fine, or I go ahead and seek a termination tomorrow. A few hours later, I see the link on Facebook. It put me to tears. But most importantly it has made me know without a doubt that I cannot do this to him.”
“[S]haring your story and showing his pictures it has helped me so much,” another named Crista wrote. “I just had a baby 7 months ago and I’m pregnant again. The father wants me to get an abortion and I thought about it, but now there is no way I can do it. God blessed me with this child for a reason, and I will take care of her and love her just like I do my other children.”
“I wish that this (miscarriage) hadn’t happened, but it did for a reason,” Fretz said. “Maybe that reason was to share with the world how perfect a baby which is legal to abort in many states really is.”
