Pro-Life   ...let the children live

Genocide Awareness Project
The Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) is a traveling photo-mural exhibit which compares the contemporary genocide of abortion to historically recognized forms of genocide. It visits university campuses around the country to show as many students as possible what abortion actually does to unborn children and get them to think about abortion in a broader historical context.


In the Womb - by National Geographic
>> check out these amazing images
National Geographic shows some amazing images of the life of the baby while in the womb.
The webpage description identifies,
"Featuring pioneering medical imaging technology, called 4-D ultrasound, which shows the fetus as it sucks its thumb, blinks, yawns, smiles, and moves in real time inside the womb, In the Womb also includes stunning images from in-utero surgery as a doctor inserts a fetoscope through the mother's womb and into the fetus to correct a congenital defect."


Samuel's Hand
A picture began circulating in November, 2002 It should be "The Picture of the Year," or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the US paper which published it, you probably would never have seen it. The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by a surgeon named Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not have survived if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb. During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on little Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger.

In a Time Europe article highlighting new pregnancy imagery (that shows the formation of major organs and other significant evidence of the formation of human life but a few days after conception), Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile. The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, "Hand of Hope."

The text explaining the picture begins, "The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner, as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life." Little Samuel's mother said they "wept for days" when they saw the picture. She said, "The photo reminds us my pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person."

Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 per cent successful. Now - see the actual picture, it is awesome. The world needs to see this one!  (follow-up letter from Samuel's mother is below picture.)
