    I got this in an e-mail and maybe this can/will open some eyes to abortion.
    ================================================== ========
    I'm not sure if you have seen this one before or not, but I think it is very touching.

    This is pretty amazing.

    A picture began circulating in November. It should be The Picture of the Year, or perhaps, Picture of the Decade !!

    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 survive 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.

    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, and it is awesome... incredible.

    And hey, pass it on,
    The world needs to see this one.

    Thanks, cool. Thank you very much.

    I had received this email/pic some months ago and had forgotten the impact it has.



    If you are not touched by this, your genes are defective.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    That's why I named it "opening eyes"!! Hopefully some people can see that there is life in that womb and it is killing a person/child!!

    And your right,

    Yep.

    I had the opportunity to witness my daughters birth by C-Section. I watched the whole procedure (once they let me in the room)

    My Son, who was born 2 months premature, stayed at the 'premature' section of the hospital where there were many babies born much earlier than my son was. Some only weighed just over a pound and were just past the half way mark in gestation.

    I have no respect for the selfish people that think it is their 'choice' to kill a baby or fetus if you will!

    A factual picture and some truth to the embellished story.

    My youngest grandson....

    was born 3 months premature. Had to give him steroids to get his lungs developed.
    2 and a half years later, he's now a big boy at about 35-40 pounds and the imput drive this kid has for life is amazing. No wait, its a miracle!
    I've also seen, first hand, the "after-effects" that can crush a womans' spirit and well-being from having had an abortion.
    For the MOST part, I feel abortion is wrong. There are exceptions only when the life of the mother is determined or the quality of life of the unborn babe is terminal.

    I am glad I read the link posted by Wolfdog. My first thought was about operating on a baby without anestesia. I feel much better now.
    If the superheat ain't right it ain't charged right.
