After trying to conceive for years,  Alex and Julie Armas of Villa Rica, Georgia, learned that their unborn child at 21 weeks  had hydrocephalus and spina bifida.  Both were Christians and abortion was not an option for them.  This was the baby God had chosen for them and they opted for reparative surgery on the baby in the womb.  Such surgery at such an early fetal age was new and free-lance photographer, Michael Clancy,  was chosen by USA Today to photograph the surgery as a way to increase awareness of the procedure.

According to Clancy, during the procedure the baby’s hand reached out of the surgical opening in the uterus and the resulting amazing photograph of the juxtaposition of baby’s hand and surgeon’s  hand went viral around the world.   See photos and story here.

“Immediately after surgery,” Alex recalls, “the hydrocephalus stopped progressing and started to slowly decrease.” By the time Samuel was born, 15 weeks later, his brain malformation had reversed and the hydrocephalus had mostly disappeared.  Samuel is now four years old, walking with braces, and cognitively normal.

What a difference between the hand in the above story and the hand in the video below!  The following pro-life video was produced by Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life.

The video has been banned in Canada as being too graphic.  It brings home a reality that we all need to understand – the unborn child is a human being! Do you think it should be broadcast on TV?

King Solomon said, “Bring me a sword!” So they brought a sword before the King. The King said, “Cut the living child in two, and give half to one and half to the other”

The first woman  turned to the King, because her compassion was aroused for her son, and said: “Please my Lord, give her the living child and do not kill it!”

But the other woman  said: “Neither mine nor yours shall he be. Cut!”

The King spoke up and said: “Give the first woman  the living child, and do not kill it, for she is his mother!”
