They weigh less than 3 pounds, usually, and are perhaps 15 inches long. But they can remember.
The unborn have memories, according to medical researchers who used sound and vibration stimulation, combined with sonography, to reveal that the human fetus displays short-term memory from at least 30 weeks gestation - or about two months before they are born.
"In addition, results indicated that 34-week-old fetuses are able to store information and retrieve it four weeks later," said the research, which was released Wednesday.

But, for those pro-choice or those on the fence, this is a neat article proving once again that just because you can't see them, they are still living human beings just like you and me. And to terminate them is equivalent to murdering a human being you DO see.
