The Tigers for Life at Trinity University invited Brandon Parker, a third-year medical student at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, to discuss the basics of fetal development and embryology. Parker also explained the importance of Pro-Life convictions being grounded not only in philosophy but also in biology. Lastly, Parker described the major milestones of fetal development, which all humans experience in the womb.
