Not sure how you're misinformed about a 6 cell protoplasm, as 3days after fertilization it's a 16 cell protoplasm. So unless abortions are occurring 24 hrs. after fertilization (hint: they're NOT). 88% of abortions occur between 8-12 weeks. During your 8th week of pregnancy, your baby's face is becoming more defined: eyelids have formed, his nose is beginning to protrude, and his upper lip is taking shape. Where there once were only stubs, fingers and toes are starting to develop from his arms and legs. His heart is beating quickly and strong inside his tiny body. Just using the word protoplasm does not make you smart!
