Where Do Babies Come From?

Why-Storks-Deliver-BabiesOld Myth: When a lady wants to be a mommy, a stork magically appears overhead with a baby in its beak and drops it into the lady’s house! But if the lady doesn’t want it–poof!–the stork takes it away!


Baby+in+uteroNew Myth: When a lady wants to be a mommy, a funny lump of “tissue” in her tummy magically turns into a baby! But if the lady doesn’t want it–poof!–it turns back into “tissue” and a doctor takes it away!

Myths may change with the times.

But they’re still myths.

  1. Amen. Myths are everything however, they shape a culture for good or bad.

  3. This reminds me of a blog I read describing why a woman who was once pro-life decided to become pro-choice. The illustration showed an invitro teddy bear. There are myths but some tell themselves downright lies.

  6. This is so well-said, Mitch! As of Jan. 21, 2015… 57,762,169 women have believed this myth in America since Roe vs. Wade in 1973. Thank you for doing your part to bring light to the subject… I work at a pregnancy clinic where we consider every baby saved as ‘two’ lives saved… The baby’s life and the mom’s. We’ve never had a mom come back to us and say she was sorry for keeping her baby. As for those who leave perusing an abortion elsewhere, I’m afraid many live in regret. Thus, we offer recovery counseling for them upon their return… I recently spoke with a lady seeking help who had lived in regret for 30 years. What an opportunity to share the amazing grace of our GIANT GOD who loves her and can heal broken heart! Bottom line, even our very soul witnesses to our heart that it is a child not a choice. Thanks again for your post! 🙂

    Did you know more babies are born in July and August than any other time of year?

    Count backward on the calendar and you’ll find some cold months just right for “cuddling.” I have first hand experience in this. My daughter’s birthday is August 29! :>)
