A mum has shared photos of her son who died 14 weeks into pregnancy. The woman, Sharran Sutherland, shared the photos to prove he is a real baby after doctors called him medical waste.
The images show the four-inch-long little boy, who weighed just 26 grams, with fully-formed face, hands, feet and even fingernails.
The son whom they call Miran was buried in a flowerpot under a hydrangea bush. His parents were allowed to take him home to bury because he could not legally be classified as a baby until 20 weeks old.
Sharran however lamented that she wasn’t given the chance to properly morn her son Miran who was never legally a child – only a fetus.
She said: “Looking at him, holding him in my hand, looking at how perfectly formed he was, I was amazed.
“I just couldn’t believe how perfect everything was on him. His ears, his tongue, his gums, his lips. I couldn’t believe it.
“You have those baby books that show you diagrams of a baby in utero but he didn’t look like anything I had ever seen. I was just filled with such awe and amazement with him.
“He just needed to continue maturing and growing and developing. It blew me away. It was an incredible feeling. It’s really hard to describe.
“Even though he had died, I was given that chance to hold my baby still. That longing was fulfilled. I was grateful for that. I couldn’t fathom it.
“This world has done a great job at dehumanising unborn babies. The abortion industry has done a great job at that but it doesn’t just affect women who are getting abortions.
“It affects women who have lost their babies too – because the world doesn’t view their children as babies.
“So when a woman loses her unborn child she’s not able to grieve in the same way as a woman who gave birth to a baby that dies after being born.
“When a woman loses her unborn baby it’s almost like you don’t speak of it. A woman goes through it alone and I believe that’s because other people don’t recognise it as a human, as a baby.
