From infancy to old age as displayed in a gorgeous 4-minute video
As we have observed dozens and dozens of times, arguably the best way to reach the undecided is to show them the marvelous complexity of the unborn child through her developmental journey. Reveal how what you see at fertilization is not only the same baby you will hold in your hands nine months later but also the same human being as she approaches the end of a long life.
The Daily Mail, bless its institutional heart, ran a piece today about the Korean artist and illustrator Seok Jeong Hyeon (better known as Stonehouse) which linked to a time-lapse video that traced a woman’s life from infancy to very old age, then finishing by flashing back to the drawing of a infant.
There are no words—none are needed–only gentle background music. Your eyes are riveted to this very brief (four minutes) tour of one person’s life.
