Just about all their fetus-centered propaganda depends on a fundamental misunderstanding of how fetal development even works. Simple Googling can usually prove wrong an anti-choicer’s claim that “This is what a fetus looks like at x weeks!” When it’s not even remotely close. There was one instance where a priest took an actual stillborn and said it was an aborted fetus. That link has some other great examples of this, too. Anti-choicers outright lie about fetuses’ capabilities and whatnot, not that it makes a difference in whether it gets to use someone’s uterus against their will or not.
