Babies Are People Too!

 

56,6663,892 Babies Were Estimated killed by surgical abortion since 1973 as reported by American Life League

 

"In 1983, more than 15 million unborn children have had their lives snuffed out by legalized abortions since 1973. That is over ten times the number of Americans lost in all our nation's wars." (President Ronald Reagan).

 

 If you hold back from rescuing those taken away to death, those who go staggering to the slaughter; if you say, 'Look, we did not know this'- does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?  Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it?  And will he not repay all according to their deeds?"   Proverbs 24:11-12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During surgery on little Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed, hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. The photograph captured the amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, "Hand of Hope." Text explaining the picture began, "The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Arms emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life.

This 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 survive if remand from the mothers 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. In the procedure, a C-section removes the uterus and the doctor makes a small incision to operate on the baby.

That picture should be shown on every television newscast and run In every newspaper in America.  

It won't be.

Why?  Because it is a graphic reminder that growing in the womb is a baby' not a "glob of tissue," or "product of conception." 

That pre-born baby is a human being with all the emotions, will, and personality of any human being.

That picture says it in a way that a thousand words cannot.

Little Samuel's mother said they "wept for days" when the saw the picture.

She said, "The photo reminds us my pregnancy is not about disability or illness, it's about a little person."  That's what it's always been about. That's what the media elite wants us to forget.  And, that's why they don t want you to see the picture.

MIAMI (AP) — A South Florida hospital plans to release a premature baby today who doctors say spent less time in the womb than any other surviving infant baby girl said to have spent the shortest time in her mother's womb is to be released from the hospital in Miami where she was born.

Amillia Taylor is believed to be the first baby to have survived following a gestation period of less than 23 weeks. At the time of her birth at the Baptist Children's Hospital last October, Amillia measured 241 millimetres or 9.5 inches - no longer than a ballpoint pen. She weighed just 284g or 10oz.

Amillia Sonja Taylor was delivered after just under 22 weeks of pregnancy. Full-term births occur after babies have spent 37 to 40 weeks to in the womb.

Doctors who cared for the infant say Amillia is the first baby known to survive after a gestation period of fewer than 23 weeks.

When Taylor was born on October 24th, she was nine-and-a-half inches long and weighed less than ten ounces.

Amillia was delivered via C-section after attempts to delay a premature delivery failed. However, she was breathing without assistance at birth and even made several attempts to cry. Doctors at the hospital attribute her survival to significant technological advances in neo-natal care.  Amillia's mother, Sonja Taylor, said she was delighted at her daughter's continuing progress.

'It was hard to imagine she would get this far. But now she is beginning to look like a real baby. Even though she's only four pounds (1.8kg) now, she's plump to me,' she said.  Doctors say the baby girl is now thriving and well enough to be cared for by her parents at home.

'It may be that we need to reconsider our standard for viability in light of Amillia's case,' a neonatalist at the hospital said.  The American Association of Pediatrics indicates that babies born at less than 23 weeks of age and 400g in weight are not considered viable.  'Over the years, the technology that we have available to save these premature babies has improved dramatically. Today, we can save babies that would have never survived 10 years ago,' he said.

Abortion in the United States - Statistics

  There have been over 43 million abortions since 1973. 

·     The annual number of abortions went from 744,600 in the first year of legalization, to a high of over 1.6 million in 1990.

      In 1997, there were 1,312,990

·     There were nearly 3,600 abortions per day in 2000, 149 per hour, about one every 24 seconds. 

·     For every 1,000 live births, there were 306 abortions in 1997

·     There were more that 140,000 second and third trimester abortions in 2000

·     In 2000, more children died from abortion than Americans died in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World Wars I  and II, the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars combined. 

·     A survey of women seeking abortions indicated that only 7% of women cited typical “hard cases” (rape, incest, or some health concern with either the baby or the mother) as the primary reason they were seeking abortion.   

·     A June, 1999 Wirthlin Poll found that 62% of respondents support legal abortion in only three or fewer circumstances: when the pregnancy results from rape or incest, or when it threatens the life of the mother.  

·     At an average cost of $372, the abortion business is a $400 million a year industry. 

·     Nearly half of all abortions are obtained by women who have already had at least one abortion.   In 1994 and 1995, women who had already had 3 or more abortions obtained 7%, or nearly 100,000, abortions each year.
