His pictures moved a lot of people to pro-life.
Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson produced magnificent photos of unborn babies for Life Magazine and the book A Child is Born, changing many minds on abortion.
Nilsson passed away at the age of 94 this week.
From The Local Sweden:
His 1965 book, “A Child is Born,” was one of the most successful photography albums ever, selling in the millions and becoming an iconic work for the anti-abortion movement.
Only later did it become widely known that many of the embryos used in the photo-essay were not alive, as many readers had thought, but had been aborted.
Absolutely chilling, but needed to show people that life begins at conception.
Besides unborn human beings, many credit Nilsson for producing “the first photographs of the AIDS virus and the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) virus, using a scanning electron microscope.
