Recently Live Action, one of the largest and most well-known pro-life organizations, released what many experts believe to be the most accurate and realistic animation of a human life, from fertilization to just before birth.

Live Action states The Baby Olivia Project

Provides a medically accurate, animated glimpse of human life from the moment of fertilization. The story details her growth as she progresses from one developmental stage to the next, in preparation for her continued life outside of the womb.”

Lila Rose, the President and founder of Live Action, also states the inspiration and reasoning behind the video: 

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of baby Olivia! And she’s already changing hearts and minds on abortion. As I’ve encountered hundreds of thousands of women through my work with Live Action, I’ve always been frustrated by the lack of real education on prenatal development. As a pregnant woman myself, I know the power of seeing your child on ultrasound, and I wanted to bring to life this little person developing rapidly each week! Baby Olivia gives the world a peek inside the womb never seen before. We worked with a team of amazing animators to beautifully document the details of preborn life, including heartbeat, fingernails, eyelashes, and even hiccups. As we prepare for the Supreme Court to hear a case that reconsiders Roe v. Wade’s wildly unjust legalization of abortion, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, our team is working to make sure Olivia is seen across the globe and by parents, leaders, and legislators everywhere. We know that baby Olivia is at the core of the abortion debate: will we defend her? Will we defend her constitutionally protected right to life? Baby Olivia should be shown to anyone considering abortion–in schools, at pregnancy resource centers, at churches, and in sidewalk advocacy. We can’t wait to see the impact Olivia makes.

Since Live Action posted the animation on their YouTube page on August 9th, 2021, the video has received almost 700,000 views and amazing feedback from viewers.

The video was created and produced by Live Action, but reviewed by many accredited doctors and professionals in various fields of medicine and science, including biology, neurobiology, and anatomy.
