A pro-life author wrote about an ambulance driver who saw a miscarriage:

“I spoke with one person, a trained ambulance attendant for many years and mother of 5, who had witnessed a woman having a miscarriage in early pregnancy. She was astonished at the humanness of the perfectly formed child, but 4 or 5 inches long, which she held in her hand. “I couldn’t believe it,” she said to me, “the tiny arms and legs, all the veins beneath the skin…” She, like a surprising many, had thought a child at that stage was more of a blob or an indistinct mass of tissue.”
