A mother from Texas who miscarried her unborn son at 11 weeks is sharing a photo of her child as a testament to the personhood and perfection of the unborn.
Tiffany Burns of Midlothian posted the photo of her child to social media on July 29, whom she held in the palm of her hand.
“This is my hand holding my sweet baby, Ezekiel,” she wrote. “I delivered him on January 20, 2016. His heart stopped at 11 weeks 2 days.”
Burns outlined that her child, even just a few weeks old, had physical features that clearly showed his humanity.
“He had a heartbeat. Such a sweet sound. He had life!” she said. “He was not a blob. He was not just a clump of cells. He was formed. Perfect. Look at the details. His sweet fingers. Toes.”
Burns called her son a “sweet little missionary” in that even in his death he can show other mothers the reality of life in the womb.
“I am blessed to be his mother. He lived to show others life!” she wrote. “Please feel free to share his LIFE with others.”
The photo has already received over 1,600 likes and nearly 3,000 shares in less than a week. Hundreds of viewers and followers have also left words of support.
“So very sorry for your loss. He is so beautiful!” one commenter named Melanie wrote. “Thanks for sharing your precious baby. I pray that anyone who has plans to abort will see your precious baby and have a change of heart about abortions.”
“Precious little guy! How could anyone murder these babies?” another named Charlotte wrote. “I dare anyone to say this baby isn’t a miracle. Life starts at conception!”
“Maybe your pain will save another baby’s life,” wrote a supporter named Linda.
