Pinterest • The world’s catalog of images

A picture began circulating in November. 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 U.S. 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 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…

This is a true story of Mother’s Sacrifice during the Japan Earthquake. After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supporting by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head. With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescuer team…

Ethel Granger - had the smallest waist on record. Ethel wore the corset 24 hrs a day in an attempt to shape her body to please her husband. From there her husband moved on to piercing her for his own admiration and insisting she wear 5" heels daily. He slowly enlarged piercings in her ears, septum and eventually gave her 13 piercings in total. He has written a biography of their marriage which is available to read on her website www.ethelgranger.com

During a spina bifida corrective procedure at twenty-one weeks in utero, Samuel thrusts his tiny hand out of the surgical opening of his mother’s uterus. As the doctor lifts his hand, Samuel reacts to the touch and squeezes the doctor’s finger. As if testing for strength, the doctor shakes the tiny fist. Samuel held firm. At that moment, I took this “Fetal Hand Grasp” photo.

Baby Phillip Miscarried at 12 weeks Baby Phillip's mother gave us permission to use these photos. His family wants to honor him by showing his humanity. They also want others to see the humanity of the unborn child and to realize that "a person is a person no matter how small." His mother, who lost three babies, said, "If Little Phillip's pictures can do good, to help educate people, they will not have died in vain."

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter: "My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and…

This photograph has been doing the rounds on social media for the last few months, but what's really going on? A Greek doctor snapped this amazing image during a caesarian section. Unusually, the amniotic sac remained intact as the birth progressed. Typically it breaks, but this time it did not -leading to the baby not even being aware it had been born. Until the amniotic sac breaks, the baby will continue to receive oxygen and nutrients from the placenta. This baby was born safe and…

The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal

Compare the choices above. The first child was killed by her mother because she was ‘unwanted’. The second child was saved by her mother because she was loved. The first child was killed after 24 weeks in the womb. The second child was saved after less than 22 weeks in the womb. The first child was abandoned by the law, her society, and her family. The second child was put at risk by this same law, but was protected and nurtured. Why was her life...
