Given the bias the media continues to show against unborn children because of abortion- it is great to see how push back, even in this story, caused a change.

In the comments, Lisa Hansen, wrote, “I have 5 children – 3 single births and a set of twins, and I can tell you they all moved the same (kicking, punching, rolling around, etc.) They’re not hitting or kicking each other – they’re just moving about like normal babies … it’s just that with twins they don’t have as much room to move. I see nothing “upsetting” about this, and I think people are trying too hard to see something that isn’t there.

And Karen Shoaff, also commented, “I agree with Lisa Hansen. There is nothing ‘upsetting’ about this MRI. These twins are just moving within their space as any normal baby. You people at SFG really need to learn how to write copy. You have some of the worse headlines I’ve ever read and I’ve been an art director/writer in advertising, marketing and PR for over 30 years..”

Others write, “You people at SFG really need to learn how to write copy. You have some of the worse headlines I’ve ever read.”
