    Do babies have thoughts in the womb?

    If babies can think and feel that proves that they are not only alive but cognizant.
    So is there any evidence that babies can do these things?

    There's no evidence for cognizant thought on the Internet - maybe we should take the fact that babies in utero don't use the Internet as evidence of cognition?

    Whether babies in utereo have enough experience to have real meaningful thoughts does not really matter. Our thinking is primarily based upon experience so lack of thinking, or reduced levels of thinking. only point to the experience limiting factor of still being in the womb. This does not have any bearing on supporting the abortion issue.

    I understand, Wall, that this was not in any way your intent. Just me making the point.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Are babies after they are born void of cognizant thought? Why not?

    Their thoughts/dreams would likely be much different than ours due to lack of language and visual stimulation. My tounge in cheek reason for why we don't remember our early years is that it's in a different format that can't be accessed by an older brain. Meaning that if a child had the language skills to tell you what the were thinking, they likely could not tell you what they were thinking when they were little babies. A 32(34?) week fetus is psychologically the same as a newborn, but they still have some developing to do. And the passive immunity shot from mom is in the last few weeks of pregnancy.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    That's kinda weird, but, at the same time, if babies thought like we do, they would be horrified that they were confined to such a small space. Yeah, I'm claustrophobic.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    I mean babies may not be able to analyze things but they can feel. They feel love. They feel pain.
    If they can do that how can people justify abortion?
