Another possibility is creating a Portal:The Unborn Child that uses a random number generator to provide different content each time it is visited. Tisane 16:47, 17 July 2010 (EDT)

Interesting suggestion. Please explain further.--Andy Schlafly 16:48, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
Well, for instance each time you hit this link, you'll usually get new selections. An unborn child portal could work the same way. However, I sense that you want a more sequential (rather than random) system, which is logical, considering that the development of an unborn child proceeds in a sequential, rather than random manner. There is probably a way to create a portal template that, when you click on "Next," will go in a sequence through Portal:The Unborn Child/Week/1, Portal:The Unborn Child/Week/2, etc. and perhaps even loop around at the end, or perhaps take the user to a page that says something to the effect of "Now that you know the facts, time to take action." Ideally, you want to avoid hard-coding the next page/previous page links and their targets into each subpage, but rather minimize code duplication by putting the control logic in the top-level portal page.

Very interesting suggestion. A portal that enabled a user to click through each week of development would terrific for visitors and students! Can you do that?--Andy Schlafly 23:12, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
I wouldn't be surprised if something like that already exists somewhere, and just needs to be wikified. A lot of stuff is copyrighted, but you might be able to secure permission for educational use. Plus I'm sure the federal government has a lot of non-copyrighted works along these lines. Or maybe there is an intern at one of these right to life organizations who would like to collaborate on this? The possibilities are endless. Here are some diagrams of unborn children in various stages of development, by the way: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Foetuses Those are available for us to use freely, of course.

Wikipedia's images seem awfully inadequate ... perhaps intentionally so! Hopefully we can find better ones for educational use ....--Andy Schlafly 23:28, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
I would agree, they leave out much of the detail in a manner that could be considered dehumanizing if one wished to attribute it to malice, but might also simply be the result of a dearth of incentives to produce quality work, given that Wikipedia's contributors are unpaid. But as I say, I'm sure that the right to live movement has plenty of unborn child images, from all stages of development. Tisane 23:31, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
