A professional soccer team in Venezuela is enabling unborn babies to play in a soccer game.
A marketing video for Estudiantes De Caracas – a professional soccer team – sought to drum up business for its soccer academy by showing expectant parents how the game is played even among their unborn babies.
As Live Action News reports, in the video, called “Little Kicks,” 10 mothers – all 28 weeks pregnant – were fitted with motion sensors placed on their bellies. Both moms and dads then watched and cheered their babies on as monitors showed their babies’ kicks and goals in the soccer match. The parents also showed discouragement when the other team scored a goal.
Estudiantes De Caracas says “Little Kicks” is “the first football match played by kids who haven’t been born, yet.”
Pro-life group Students for Life of America tweeted out its reaction to the soccer game featuring unborn babies, knowing that the abortion industry abhors any notice to the fact that unborn babies are human:
Which pro-abortion group will lose their minds first over this?

During Super Bowl 2016, for example, abortion industry political advocacy group NARAL attacked a Doritos Super Bowl ad which featured an ultrasound of an unborn baby responding to his dad eating Doritos. The abortion group slammed the ad for “humanizing fetuses” and called it “anti-choice”:

Unborn babies the same age as those in “Little Kicks” are still being aborted in the United States. Former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino explains in the medical animation video below how the abortion procedure is performed at this late stage of pregnancy:
Many states are acting to ban abortions past the fifth month of pregnancy based on research that shows unborn babies at this stage of development can feel the pain of being aborted.
Despite the evidence on fetal pain, many in the mainstream media provide support to Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby by denying the abundance of research in this area.
According to James Agresti, president of Just Facts, a nonprofit institute devoted to “publishing verifiable facts about public policy,” the scientific facts show that, by 20 weeks gestation, human babies are conscious, and have developed pain receptors.
Nevertheless, many media outlets have recently reported that humans cannot feel pain by 20 weeks. This includes but is not limited to the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, CNN, Slate, and the Daily Beast. To support this claim, all of these outlets cited a single paper published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2005.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Agresti said he is calling for JAMA to retract its 2005 article.
“The central thesis of that JAMA study is totally flawed,” he says, adding that the study rests on the notion that a developed cerebral cortex is needed in order to experience pain. However, other studies prove this theory to be false.
“The cerebral cortex is not needed for consciousness,” Agresti explains, adding:
And this is not debatable. We know this because some children are born with a condition in which they have little or no cerebral cortex. Yet as these papers point out, these children are very much conscious, they’re awake, they’re alert, they respond to their surroundings, they respond to things they don’t like by crying, they smile with things they do like. And, in fact, they behave so normally when they are born that people may not even realize that they have the condition until several months later when the baby starts missing developmental milestones.
“So these babies are clearly awake and conscious, so to say you can’t be conscious of pain until you have this cerebral cortex is manifestly untrue,” he concludes.
Agresti says he has brought his request for a retraction of the article to JAMA and is awaiting a response.
